Apparently Tom Sandoval Once Auditioned for a Boy Band
The #PumpRules SURver recalls his brush with pop fame.
Is there anything Tom Sandoval can't do? Since he proved this season on Vanderpump Rules that he already has a penchant for a boy band-worthy hairstyle, we shouldn't be too surprised to learn that the model/bartender has had a prior brush with the boy band world. As it turns out, he once auditioned to be in one. But, by accident.
"I actually auditioned for a boy band," he recently shared with The Daily Dish. "Yeah, it was a long time ago."
As the legend goes, the audition took place in the Big Apple (not Orlando, which was the home of such acts as *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys), and included some of his fellow model pals. "It was actually here in New York. It was basically a bunch of my buddies were all going, we were on our way into a casting [and] we were taking the elevator up and this guy got into the elevator and he was a producer and he was like, 'You guys look like a boy band.' 'Cause we were all good looking dudes in different ways."
It didn't work out for Sandoval and his pals, but his pal Tom Schwartz also had a dream to make it big during the bygone era of boy bands. "During the TRL days I wanted to be a VJ. That was my dream: MTV VJ," Schwartz shared.
