Bravo's Vanderpump Rules follows restauranteur Lisa Vanderpump and her friends working at her restaurant and lounge, SUR, and beyond. The Hollywood-based reality show was created as a spin-off of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and has kept fans coming back for more since the show first aired in 2013.

While the show has been filled with plenty of drama, the Scandoval of Season 10 shook fans to their core. Of course, those of us who have been watching since the very beginning know that Tom Sandoval isn't the only person on the show who has cheated. Let's take a walk down memory lane, shall we?

Jax Taylor

Fans were first introduced to Jason "Jax" Taylor in Season 1 of Vanderpump Rules. Jax has since created a long reputation for being unfaithful during the show. At the end of Season 1, he admitted that he "had relations with" a woman in Vegas while he was dating Stassi Schroeder. But that was just the beginning.

In Season 2, Jax admitted to cheating with Stassi again — but this time, it was with her best friend, Kristen Doute.

He then went on to date two women at the same time in Season 3 (Carmen Dickman and Tiffany Matthews). He claimed that they both knew about each other. However, Tom Sandoval claims that Jax cheated on Tiffany during a "boy's trip" to San Diego.

However, Jax confessed to cheating on her with Faith Stowers in Season 6. Brittany then broke up with Jax, however the pair were not separated for long. They were able to move past the scandals and eventually got married in Season 8.
