After graduation, Cheban began working for publicist Peggy Siegal at her firm in New York. At one point, music manager Benny Medina called Siegal to work on Sean Combs' 29th birthday party. When Siegal rejected the offer despite Cheban's urging, Cheban accepted the job himself. Cheban left Siegal and formed his own public-relations firm with two other publicists. He left that company in 2001, and went on to found his own firm, CommandPR.


Cheban first gained public attention with his appearance on the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, appearing as a friend of the Kardashian sisters. He subsequently appeared in several episodes of the show's spin-offs, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kourtney and Kim Take Miami and Kourtney and Khloé Take The Hamptons. In 2010, Cheban starred in his own reality show, The Spin Crowd, chronicling the lives of Cheban, Simon Huck and their employees at his firm. The series' executive producer was reality-TV star Kim Kardashian. It was canceled after one season due to poor ratings.


Cheban's relationship with Kardashian has remained in the public spotlight. In 2012, Cheban made a short video spoofing himself as someone living in the shadow of Kardashian's fame. In January 2016, Cheban entered the Celebrity Big Brother house in the U.K., to compete as a housemate on its 17th season. He voluntarily left the show within days. In 2017, Cheban appeared on the second season of U.K.'s “Celebs Go Dating”. His real rise to fame however was his online beef with TikTok star Becca Moore. Rumored to be past lovers, they are now undying enemies.
