Saint John — The two young men who have gained local notoriety with their YouTube videos exposing sexual predators in Saint John have finally accepted one of the many offers they frequently receive from television networks.
The Creep Catcher Saint John operation normally involves the confrontation of an adult male at a prearranged meeting place; usually just outside the man’s vehicle. Their new HGTV Canada show, Inside a Creep’s Cave, has them arranging meetings at the alleged sexual predator’s residence.
“It’s a new era,” remarked one of the hosts. “…A new era not only in terms of sexual politics and social tolerance of deviance but also for home renovation reality TV.”
Blaine Favreau, a producer for Inside a Creep’s Cave, responded to the obvious safety concerns surrounding the two hosts now confronting suspects in their homes. “It turns out that having the opportunity to show off one’s interior design choices offsets any perceived threat of being publicly outed as a degenerate.”
In the pilot episode, the hosts expose a man in Saint John’s South End who, in addition to having attempted to lure a 14-year-old girl into his home, also used a discounted brand of click-flooring in an especially creative way. “Look bud, the way you’ve got this ash-coloured flooring going up your walls resembles the sort of wainscoting that you may have found in a South End home…maybe 50 years ago.” The host then changed his tone. “… also, we got the chat logs — you’re done, bud.”
