To Catch a Predator's Chris Hansen Gets Caught Cheating on Camera
Chris Hansen, host of NBC's "To Catch a Predator", got a taste of his own medicine. After making a name for himself by catching would-be pedophiles online looking to hook up with children, Hansen got to experience for himself what it is like to be on the receiving end of an undercover camera. No, Hansen didn't get caught trolling the net for kids. Rather, the married anchor was secretly filmed on a date with a blonde TV reporter who he had reportedly been dating for the past four months.
Hansen, 51, was said to have been having an affair with Kristyn Caddell, 30, a local television news reporter from Florida. Hansen was caught last weekend taking Caddell out for a romantic dinner at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, and then later spending the night at her Palm Beach apartment. The two reportedly met last March at a Palm Beach party.
Hansen was busted in an undercover sting operation put together by the National Enquirer.
Caddell reportedly introduced herself to Hansen at the party on the night they met, and a source says that "there was an immediate physical attraction between them." The source added:
"Chris and Kristyn got on so well that she ended up going back to his room at The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach -- and later boasted to pals about staying the night with him."
Chris Hansen is married to Mary Joan Hansen, with whom he has two sons.
