"Okay here is an honest review that won't blow smoke up your you know what.
I gave in and bought this DVD set when I was not able to rent it. Cheaters is my guilty pleasure show. I stumbled on the show by accident when I was switching channels, and have been hooked ever since. Cheaters is a show where people pretty much know their mate is cheating, but want some proof so they can create a scene on television. The best part of the segments is when the cameras run up on people, and they have this look of shock on their faces when they see their boyfriend or girlfriend running up on them.
This set contains 4 DVD's. What was fun was seeing the segments totally unedited and being able to hear all the swearing, and seeing some of the naughty content. However, there was still a couple that were NOT uncensored and images were still blurred out. In addition, I usually tune out when the cheaters face is blurred. That is no fun at all. I mean what is the sense of not having your face shown, you are already busted!!!
The cases are of not only heterosexual couples caught cheating, but lesbian and in one case a woman who finds out her boyfriend is really gay. What makes me laugh is out of one side of their mouth the victims will say "he or she" is a good man or woman, but how good are these folks if you are on cheaters? Not that good.
Some people resort to placing hidden cameras in their home, and they get to find out some things they did not want to see. Like their mates having sex with the baby sitter, or their lesbian lover having relations with a man. Sometimes weapons were pulled out, fights would occur.
There was one case where the woman ran up on her husband and simply clocked him on the head, another woman sprays mace on her guy!! Oh yeah the confrontations can get ugly.
Some of the cases I will highlight:
Ava Lee who was upset when her Al Sharpton hair don't guy was cheating on her, and he was very nonchalant about it. She said he was a attractive, obviously Ava needed her eyes examined, but I digress. She confronts him as he is leaving church with his new woman. His lies was he was working or hanging with the band.
Renee was this overly made up (I mean can you say spray painted the make up on) woman who was pregnant with her boyfriends child. He was cheating, and when he is confronted he totally looses his temper and stabs Joey. I had no idea Joey was stabbed, not to mention another man falls off the boat. So the rest of that case is subduing the stabber, and getting Joey to the hospital.
Jasmin her boyfriend was coming over to do a lot of laundry, what he was really doing was her roommate. No correction ex-roommate. The roommate tries to justify her actions by saying Jasmine was cheating on the boyfriend, but of course she had no proof.
Amanda Grayson gothic looking woman who has a boyfriend making sex tapes with another woman. Loved that confrontation. Amanda breaks the camera. Cheater claims he was making the tapes to sell so he could have his own tattoo shop so he could be his own boss. What was sad was Amanda had aborted a baby she was to have by him at his request.
Aaron Rodriquez girlfriend is a secretary taking dictation from another man at the office. That man was peeing in the coffee (yucky!!!), and being disrespectful. He claims Aaron was racist.
There was a guy who thought being with a dominatrix would help his family. Hilarious!!! He is running through the hall of the hotel trying to avoid the camera with his black mask on his head. One woman from another case screams "I've been saved by Jesus so F you."
Then there was the guy in the sparkling boxer shorts who runs home barefoot. His friend confronts him, and he really has nothing to say, but his friend was somewhat appreciative because he now knew not to marry his trifling girlfriend.
If you are a fan of the show and missed episodes like I did, it's worth buying. It's a set I will watch every now and again when I have nothing better to watch on television or nothing better to do. My only complaint is disk 4 has some of the shows that were on the other three disks. I found myself fast forwarding through some of those cases.
The show is simply what it is, a show about confronting cheaters in the act. It gives one person closure, and the other is possibly made to realize how their actions hurt someone they claimed they loved."
Stop with the canned reviews!

"For the love of god, do you think Amazon shoppers were born yesterday? Ignore all these fake reviews ...
Yes, "Cheaters" is the most lurid show not on HBO. But give it credit: Before reality TV got huge, it took reality TV right to the edge. From the time I saw it at a trade show in 2000, I knew it was going to be huge. But I thought it'd be a flash in the pan ... the surprise is that it's held on in reruns for so long."
Go to your local video store not worth the money

"My advice go rent it. I'm very disappointed with this dvd set. Yeah, you get to see full frontal nudity and penetration but then my interest started to go down. The remainder was just the cursing. The last dvd is mostly repeats of Disk 1 and 3. The only thing different is Joey Grieco is hosting them. Cheaters chumped me. I'm so glad I renteD this. SAVE YOUR MONEY!"

"This is my favorite guily pleasure and it delivers in all its uncensored glory. This is a great study in sexual human behavior in infidelity and what people will say when they're busted. "It's just a friend" is the number one excuse after getting busted and just before the cheater is shown video proof of his/her misdeeds. I love the look on their faces. It's always the same deer caught in headlights look. For any "Cheaters" fan who wants to see what really happens(most of it as raw as they can get away with) and what's really bleeped out(some of it is clever profanities but most is everyone cussing at each other - which is still very funny) should run and purchase this volume and volume 2 which will be my next purchase."
The show is fake!!

"People, Cheaters is a scripted, acted television show.
Why are the faces blurred? They are recurring actors, much like Operation Repo.
Joey was never "stabbed." No police report, no EMS call report, no hospital records, etc....
Plus the crews just can't walk/crash into/onto private property.
