And the movie?[edit]

There's a movie with this title too, and the word redirects here? With no disambiguation page?

Real or fake?[edit]

Is the footage shown in the show really taking place or is it just played by actors to look real? I only saw two episodes and wondered in some situations how they placed the camera in rooms they usually don't have access to. Regards from Austria.

I recall quite a bit of controversy regarding the whole stabbing incident myself. Regretabbly I haven't been able to turn up anything of note. I only wish the perpertrator had been better with the knife. In regards to the filiming in Dallas, this is true. I've never seen an episode outside of the Dallas metroplex. Also, at the end of the show they give contact information for viewers who think they may have a cheating spouse, the address listed is (ironically) 4516 Lovers Lane in Dallas 68.203.127.188 19:38, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
  • There have been a few episodes shot in NYC.

My guess: it's fake. I don't really know that, but i guess if you're filming somebody without his knowledge, you'd have to ask for permission to broadcast. And i don't really think anyone caught cheating would want it on TV. - There's 2 links in the wikipedia-article (Controversy) regards, --HerbSolo 10:31, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Yea i rekon too. because in 1 episode a lady gave birth on the set just when he came up to his bf for cheating. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 58.7.123.144 (talk) 12:06, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

If you see fottage inside a structure it is either a public place or owned by someone who gave their permission, usually the person being cheated on. It is absolutely legal to film someone outside or in a public place. You only have the right to privacy in a place where you could reasonably expect privacy, such as inside your own home or a restroom. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.252.30.243 (talk) 07:50, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

However I do want to point out there have been episodes where the crew has entered the apartment or home of an individual that requested the crew leave after stating it was a private residence that they owned without the complaintant. When the crew was attacked with the paintball gun (and even when the host was stabbed) the crew can not press charges as they were trespassing. While what they do may be a service, if they enter a private residence, they should expect to be shot or harmed and I see no reason that they would expect otherwise. I often wonder how many times a gun has been pulled on them. I mean a group of men enter a man's house and burst into his bedroom while he is with a loved one, all the guys are in black with tazers. What do they expect to have happen? (On a side note, it would be very funny if the TV show COPS happened to be filming the arrest of the CHEATERS crew..that would be the best!) --24.117.130.146 (talk) 04:22, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

fake as hell, IMO - I saw one where a pissed hillbilly drove his truck off of a dock, and they just so happened to have a helicopter shooting that day.... riiiight. I assume its like Springer, where people get paid to do stupid things and stupid people believe its real... 208.48.150.6 (talk) 09:52, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

I'd vote for "embellished" as opposed to fake. The article does actually bring up an instance were people claimed they were paid off by the show to do certain things. Perhaps some more info in this regard would help. --McDoobAU93 (talk) 14:29, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
I know this doesn't really help the article, but for anyone wondering, the show features both real and staged confrontations. I've had two coworkers that were actors on the show, but occasionally they do investigate real claims.Scyclical (talk) 19:55, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

What makes me (more than) suspicious is how the suspects are apparently in the start of the relationship. I suspect that infidelity start out much like we see on Cheaters, but that after a while it becomes a mere text-me-for-bootycall-but-keep-it-low-profile thing, but which would make for poor TV drama. This is consistently the reverse of what we are seeing on the show. It is too much of a coincidence that all these "suspects" are romantisizing for days before having sex. The premise of the show is that these infidelities have been going on for some time finally arousing enough suspicion with the spouse to write to the show, so you'd expect the cheaters to be months and years into their flings. Not only don't I think that the interaction between the two would be vastly different, but if they had been going to restaurants, movies, parks, clubs etc so blatantly obvious as a couple, they would have been spotted by someone.(84.211.138.201 (talk) 05:20, 31 March 2016 (UTC))

Bizarre Moments[edit]

Outside of the expansion of the stabbing story, I am not sure that this section has encyclopedic merit. But regardless of that, I have read the last sentence in the section three or four times and have no idea what is being explained, nor even how many people are involved (a girlfriend, his [sic?] man, her fiance/companion, another (?) fiance, a groom, and an ex-fiance?). Can someone with knowledge of the story please, at the very least, rewrite this so it is clear? "On the Season 10 premiere, a girlfriend suspected his man of cheating on her, but as further evidence reveals, he's been with her fiance (the companion). The Cheaters crew and the complaintant storm in on an outdoor wedding, and while the girlfriend was wanting answers, his fiance bashes the groom and demands that he get away from her. As an end result, his girlfriend broke up with him and his ex-fiance called off the wedding." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.35.35.34 (talk) 19:12, 13 November 2009 (UTC)
