On last week’s episode of Teen Mom, Amber went out on a date with a guy she’d met at Wal-Mart. The guy seemed pretty shady even before he admitted that he was on a work-release program from prison. When Amber told him that she had a kid, he said that was “great.” Amber, who doesn’t seem to have the sense God gave a mule (copyright: my grandmother), seemed pretty put off by his comment, and with good reason. I’m not saying that men who like children are all pedos, but the combination of his smarminess, saying he loved kids, and being a convicted felon certainly set off some alarm bells for me. And it turns out those instincts were right: Christopher Glen Hossman, aka Amber’s Date, is a convicted child molester. He is registered on Indiana’s sex offender website and has a current address in Anderson, Indiana, which is where Amber lives. According to the definition of Hossman’s crime, he molested someone under the age of 14.

Let’s hope Amber saw through this guy and doesn’t contact him again, because her daughter Leah does not need to be around this guy. Also, while we’re at it, Amber should give custody of Leah to Gary, because she doesn’t seem to like parenting at all, and her recent acts of domestic violence against Gary don’t bode well for future treatment of her daughter.
