Ariana Madix “Wouldn’t be Surprised” if People Change Their Minds About Tom Sandoval During Season 11
The Vanderpump Rules cast member also referred to the upcoming season as "different."
The former SUR bartender has a lot of exciting things going on at the moment, but she just teased something quite surprising about the upcoming season of Vanderpump Rules — and it involves her ex-boyfriend.
Tom Sandoval's Role on Vanderpump Rules Season 11
Ariana made the revelation in the comments section of an E! News post about the "explosive" Season 11 trailer (which you can watch yourself at the top of this post). When a fan predicted that viewers would "develop a soft spot for Tom" once they tune in to Season 11, Ariana agreed.
"Certainly wouldn’t be surprised if the audience swings that way," she wrote.
Ariana Madix Teases a "Different" Vanderpump Rules Season 11
Shortly before she left that comment, Ariana opened up about what it was like to film Season 11 with her ex.
"You know, it is what it is..." she said about the experience during the "SURving the Latest with Vanderpump Rules" at BravoCon 2023 on November 3. "It was weird, it was different, it was difficult, and I’m glad that it’s behind me."
Ariana's ex also teased the season — and he revealed that there is some drama this time around that doesn't involve him.
"I’ll say something without saying something," he said during a different interview at BravoCon. "There’s definitely something that you don’t see coming that happens, that’s not involved with me."
Sheonna Mix, who is one of the show's producers, agreed with Ariana that Sandoval will see some "redemption" on Season 11.
"It's about redemption right? And none of these people are perfect, so to give a little bit of a tease, I think people will be surprised to see some of the people who softened to Sandoval," she said during the "Spilling Vanderpump Tea with Bravo Producers" panel. "It's not who you think."
Season 11 will premiere in January 2024.
In the meantime, stream Seasons 1 through 10 of Vanderpump Rules on Peacock now.
