Untitled[edit]

---

I'm curious as well why this page is locked ?

I just discovered the show "Cheaters" and was looking for more infomation about the shows host.

Needs a lock explanation[edit]

Let's have it 74.132.209.231 06:03, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Info[edit]

Joey Greco is the host of the syndicated show "Cheaters."

Raised in New York, Joey Greco enjoyed growing up near the beach but also appreciated the culture that New York City provided. With an interest in human relationships, interaction, and communication, Greco attended college in Missouri and Louisiana, receiving a B.A. in Psychology and an M.A. in Education/Counseling.

After completing his education, he began working as a counselor. Before long, Greco (who admittedly has a short attention span) shifted his focus to his passion for sports. He had always been involved in athletics, so a career in sports and fitness training was a natural progression. Soon, he rose to the top of the industry, speaking at conferences and presenting seminars worldwide. This exposure attracted the attention of ESPN, which was searching for hosts to launch a more modern version of the fitness programming being broadcast at the time. Greco auditioned and booked the job as one of the ESPN fitness pros. He quickly learned the difference between live and on-camera presentations and readily admits, “There’s bad, and then there’s what I was!” After a humbling first season, Greco enrolled in some commercial acting classes and was bitten by the acting bug. Greco excelled on the ESPN show until its cancellation a few years later, but he continued to travel and present seminars. He also continued his acting training, landing roles in many films, commercials, and television shows.

Always striving to challenge himself and broaden his horizons, Greco decided to take a real estate course while he had some time on a break. Before long, he had taken enough classes to get his real estate license. He has been very successful in this career, while still managing to pursue opportunities in the entertainment field. In December, 2002, he landed the job of host of Cheaters. It is a perfect fit for Greco, whose background in psychology and interest in getting to the truth, have been a driving force behind the show.

Greco, an avid golfer, is single and has an Australian Shepherd named Sky. Outside of his role on Cheaters, he continues to stay busy with appearances, various commercial & film roles and as a frequent television guest.

Deletion[edit]

It was locked because people kept on reposting it after it was deleted. The main problem is that it doesn't explain why he is important. you need to do that, else it will be deleted under WP:CSD #a7. Blnguyen | rant-line 06:11, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Criteria[edit]

It would seem that the fact that the content was short doesn't qualify the article for deletion...an addition of "Host of syndicated show "Cheaters"" would suffice for inclusion (and probably should have been included in the original).

TV Host[edit]

Joey Greco is the host of an internationally famous reality TV show. There's no reason why he should not have a wiki article. If there is an issue with the content of the last article, then the content should be addressed, but the article should not have been deleted. This situation is very difficult to justify.

I have put this article up on Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2006 September 6. Calgacus (ΚΑΛΓΑΚΟΣ) 19:54, 6 September 2006 (UTC)


As Joel Greco, he was one of several hosts on ESPN's Fitness Pros. I have tried to enter this into the main article, but some rtrd deleted it. Leave it in. He even had his name in the titles/credits, so there is no need to remove the information. MG196 17:11 18 June 2007

I reverted your first edit because retards usually don't mind this kind of information on the main article, only when statements like "Looking back, it was a very lame show!" are inserted. Thanks. Ian Kiu 19:33, 18 June 2007 (UTC)
Editing out legit info is what rtrds do. Editing out the goofy editorialising is fine. Rtrd. MG196 17:02 22 June 2007

Stabbing[edit]

"On one episode, Greco was depicted as being stabbed, though many suspect it was a hoax."

More information is needed to back up this claim. Who claims it was a hoax? What is the evidence for it being a hoax? What are the details surrounding the incident? I'd rather see it clarified rather than removed, so if anyone has more information, please add it. 74.140.247.121 04:50, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

A hoax in what way? That he wasn't stabbed, or that the stabbing was staged? 71.194.163.223 16:26, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Inside Edition filed this segment (http://www.insideedition.com/news.aspx?storyId=3595) with more than one person involved with the production claiming the stabbing was staged, as well as several other "cases". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.248.121.141 (talk) 22:57, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Greco's Date of Birth[edit]

What year is Joey Greco Born?134.124.143.149 16:29, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

No way was he born in 1969 . . . he was in college in the late 70's & early 80's (unless he was a child genius . . . which I doubt! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.82.125.95 (talk) 05:06, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Why is this following information listed as allegedly having happened, without an explanation as to why there's any doubt?[edit]

The following lines appear in the article:

    • Greco allegedly suffered a knife wound in an episode from 2003. Greco and a cameraman boarded a private boat on open water. Greco was said to have received a 3 inch stab wound to the lower abdomen.
