Meanwhile the edited versions of each predator confrontation can be easily accessed on YouTube. However, the uncut interviews and subsequent police interrogations proved difficult to access. Initially, most uncut footage was published on Chris Hansen's own website as part of a subscription service. Among these consisted of footage of Vincent Ambrosio, a nineteen year old whose segment was never broadcast on Crime Watch Daily due to concerns regarding Ambrosio's wellbeing when the sting occurred.

With the help of various YouTubers, the majority of footage has since been recovered and uploaded to YouTube. Of the Hansen confrontations, only three, concerning Mike Manzi, Charles Lawrence and Michael Gentile, have yet to resurface. Regarding police interrogations, the interviews of Popovich and Gentile are completely inaccessible, whereas only highlights of Buchanan and Jesse Velez have resurfaced.

Uncut version of Chris Hansen confronting John Dupee.

Status: Partially Lost

Hansen vs. Predator (also abbreviated to HvP) is a hidden camera investigation series broadcast on Crime Watch Daily in 2016. Running for a single season, it was a spiritual successor of To Catch a Predator, a reality series from TV news program Dateline NBC, featuring host Chris Hansen confronting adult men arriving at a sting house with the intent to have sex with minors between the ages of 12 to 13, following an often graphic online conversation with the child.[1] In reality, the "minors" were adult decoys from the online watchdog group Tetrad Core, who would establish online profiles of underage individuals that would wait for adults to initiate a conversation with them. The sole investigation, conducted in October 2015 in Fairfield, Connecticut, resulted in the arrests and convictions of eleven men.[2]

Full Chatlogs, Interviews and Interrogations[edit | edit source]

Unlike the chatlogs of most TCAP predators, which can be easily accessed on Perverted Justice's website, the HvP chatlogs were not publicly made available by Tetrad Core. However, despite the organization disbanding sometime in mid-2017,[3] the majority of chatlogs and associated images have since been found and uploaded in full to YouTube, with most videos providing narration. Of eleven chatlogs, only Stephen Buchanan, Michael Popovich and David Tiriolo remained unaccounted for.

Meanwhile, the edited versions of each predator confrontation can be easily accessed on YouTube. However, the uncut interviews and subsequent police interrogations proved difficult to access. Initially, most uncut footage was published on Chris Hansen's own website as part of a subscription service. Among these consisted of footage of Vincent Ambrosio, a nineteen-year-old whose segment was never broadcast on Crime Watch Daily due to concerns regarding Ambrosio's wellbeing when the sting occurred. However, Hansen's website became inaccessible in January 2020 following Hansen's firing of web producer Vincent Nicotra, who in response suspended the website with the message "Hansen vs Predators is suspended due to non-payment." [4]

With the help of various YouTubers, the majority of footage has since been recovered and uploaded to YouTube. Of the Hansen confrontations, only three, concerning Mike Manzi, Charles Lawrence and Michael Gentile, have yet to resurface. Regarding police interrogations, the interviews of Popovich and Gentile are completely inaccessible, whereas only highlights of Buchanan and Jesse Velez have resurfaced.
