Actors don’t need to be tailed by Gomez for weeks on end.
JOEY GRECO CHEATERS HOST (SEASONS 2-12) Joey Greco is a New York City native.
While Joey was a young student, he filled himself with the many cultures of Manhattan Island, visiting the great number of museums to study the art and history of the world.
They would then present the footage (peppered with audio recordings of phone calls of the now-confirmed cheater caught lying about their whereabouts) to the cheatee, and then once they were sufficiently good and furious — sic ’em on the cheater and cheating accomplice and watch all hell break loose. Tommy Grand was kind of a damp sponge of a host and lacked the smug, sanctimonious pizazz of Joey Greco, so he was replaced in 2002.
The Show Was Likely Staged More Than It Was Real Before Greco even took over the three ring circus, early into the production of The show’s concept from the outset was a mixture of fact and fantasy, but somewhere along the road to national syndication, the temptation to use faux cheaters must have started looking sweet.
But according to the police in Rowlett, Texas, that never happened.
"There were no arrests at all during that time period for that type of crime," says John Ellison of the Rowlett Police Department. If we can't count on Cheaters to present us with real cheating, what can we count on?
They also tend to be younger and better looking than real cheaters, who often will not consent to allow the show to air their faces..
Every cheating assignment starts out as basically the suspected cheater meeting an unknown person, then they’re seen holding hands or some crap, then they intercept the lying phone call, and then finally they catch them in full-on intercourse — and of course the cheater is always conveniently on a date with the person they’re having an affair with when confronted.
Joey found Bobby Goldstein Productions the perfect place to fuse acting and psychology together, earning the host role of the CHEATERS series, while at the same time helping others cope with their troubled relationships.
