To Catch a Predator is an American reality television series that features hidden camera investigations by the television news magazine program Dateline NBC. It was devoted to impersonating underage people (generally ages 12 - 15) and detaining male adults who contacted them over the Internet for sexual liaisons. People were lured to meet with a decoy under the pretense of sexual contact and then confronted. Show host Chris Hansen clarified in an interview with NPR News that these subjects should be labeled as potential sexual predators, and not pedophiles. "Pedophiles have a very specific definition, people who are interested in prepubescent sex," he stated. Written by NBC

Did You Know?


Lorne Armstrong, one of the predators from the 2007 episode in Bowling Green, Kentucky, became famous on the internet for how he pronounced 'Oh God!' as "Oh Cawd!" when Chris Hansen revealed himself and the cameras came out and for how he groomed and chatted with the decoy, Kayla. The chat log transcript of his chat and audio from the phone calls of his conversations with the decoy, Kayla, have since been made into humorous videos and uploaded to several video streaming sites.

My Honest Review.
6 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

I tried my darndest to stay away from reviewing this show but i couldn't help it.

The entrapment featured in this show is some Tom Cruise Minority Report nonsense. I fear for future generations if this the way we can prove you are guilty before committing a crime. Some of them might have deserved it but most of these guys being arrested are unstable and don't deserve to be broadcasted to the world regardless. This show will prevent any type of real rehabilitation from happening.

Most of the predators on this show are end users and you can tell. There is little to no honor in catching the smallest fish in the pond over and over again.

Am i defending most of them? yes i am and I am not a pedophile.
