This is not a show I watch or care about, but I do appreciate the delicious irony of a media star being caught being naughty using the same tools he employs against others.
He's made his name with a controversial show that catches would-be internet sex perverts in televised stings.
But now Chris Hansen has found himself on the receiving end of his own hidden camera tactics, after the married NBC anchor was secretly filmed on an illicit date with a blonde television reporter 20 years his junior.
Hansen, 51, has allegedly been having an affair with Kristyn Caddell, a 30-year-old Florida journalist, for the last four months.
He does seem attracted to a particular type; a photo of Chris and his maybe soon to be ex-wife Mary shows that she and Kristyn have a great deal of physical similarity; they could easily pass for mother and daughter.
The Enquirer's sting took place last weekend, and recorded the pair as they went for dinner at the Ritz-Carlton's Angle restaurant on Friday at about 7pm.How long until we are told it is unfair for such stings to be carried out against unwary media figures?
Miss Caddell was dressed up in high heels and a short, revealing dress, and according to the source they spent much of the evening staring into each other's eyes.
They left at 9.15pm, and went for a drive along the ocean front, before being filmed filling up Miss Caddell's Jeep at a nearby gas station.
Then they drove to a liquor store, and Hansen emerged clutching a bag full of bottles. The couple returned to Miss Caddell's apartment at 10pm.
At 8am on Saturday, they, with Hansen pulling luggage behind him, and she drove him to the airport.
A source told the Enquirer: 'They were both wearing different clothes from the night before... Kristyn's hair was dishevelled as if she'd just rolled out of bed.'
