Luckily for fans of the show, Cheaters is still on the air, and the 22nd season is going to premiere in 2022. Right now, it's hosted by Peter Pankey aka Peter Gunz. Fans may also recognize him from Love & Hip Hop: New York.

During the time Peter was on Love & Hip Hop, he was known as a cheater himself. While he was in a relationship with Tara, he married Amina. On top of that, he's got 10 kids. With Tara, he's got three sons and with Amina, he's got two daughters.

Over the years, Peter has struggled to maintain his relationships with both women, and it's no surprise that they both have clashed with each other. While that's great for Love & Hip Hop viewers, it also means that Peter could carry a season of Cheaters all on his own.

You can watch Cheaters on the show's YouTube channel and catch Love & Hip Hip on Paramount Plus.
