Perverted-Justice StingEdit

On 14 January 2006, 49-year old John M. Olshavsky was arrested for internet child luring with intent for sexual assault. “Johnny O” initiated sexually-explicit chatroom conversations to meet what he believed was a 13-year old female. Nye County Sherriff’s Office and the child advocacy group “Perverted-Justice” set up surveillance at a home in Tonopah, Nevada, where Mr. Olshavsky arrived and was apprehended.[1]


John Olshavsky's audition in Episode 302 consisted of creating the illusion of fire transforming into a ball and trying but failing to toss a ball into his mouth. Piers MorganSharon Osbourne (Piers buzzed for her), and David Hasselhoff all buzzed the act. All three judges voted "No", eliminating John from the competition.
