Netflix’s ‘Cheat‘ is an exciting reality show encouraging contestants to cheat to progress. Though cheating is allowed, it is never rewarded, and eventually, the person responsible for hunting the most cheats gains an advantage. Season 1 episode 5 of ‘Cheat’ introduced us to Success Ariyibi, a Political Science Student from Romford. While he insisted that his experience with politics might help him get away with lying, he was also confident in his trivia knowledge. Well, with the cameras now turned away, let’s find out where Success is at present, shall we?
Success’ Cheat Journey
Success was confident about his chances of winning from the beginning and was eager to face his competitors. Besides, even though he seemed unsure about his ability to detect cheats, he hoped his trivia knowledge would carry him through the rounds. Nevertheless, Success finished with a perfect score in round one. Despite some of his competitors, especially Sophie, suspecting him of cheating on every answer, the show revealed that he had cheated just twice. Meanwhile, the latter ended with the highest number of accurate cheat accusations, and she used her advantage to eliminate Emma, as she was challenging to read.
Interestingly, Success tried maintaining his integrity in round 2 but was forced to cheat on two difficult questions. Yet, he was immediately called out by his opponents on both occasions, and the answers did not add any money to the total prize pool. Moreover, Sophie held on to her position as the leading cheat hunter at the end of round two and chose to eliminate Nathan, as she believed Success was easier to read.
With Success facing off against Sophie in round 3, the competition was tense as no one wanted to accuse the other. However, she eventually believed she saw something and alleged that her opponent had used underhand means to answer a question. Unfortunately, this call was inaccurate, and Success walked home with 26,000 pounds.
