Update: Video of Chris Hansen on an alleged date has been posted on the Enquirer’s Web site. The video is not particularly damning — it shows him entering a building while a blond woman follows.
Chris Hansen, host of Dateline’s “To Catch a Predator,” has allegedly been caught himself.
As the Atlantic notes, the National Enquirer reportedly has video footage of the married Hansen, 52, on a date with an anchorwoman at an NBC affiliate in West Palm Beach, Fla. According to the Enquirer — which may be a tabloid but knows a thing or two about capturing cheating husbands — Hansen has been dating the woman for four months.
Naturally, this story is spreading around the Internet because of the delicious coincidence factor: After becoming famous for catching online sex predators on-camera, Hansen seems to have been caught on-camera himself, albeit for behavior that is not quite so unsavory.
Hansen has not commented on the story thus far.
