Tom Sandoval and his now-girlfriend, Victoria Lee Robinson, weren't dating when Season 11 of Vanderpump Rules was being filmed, but it turns out that the pair wouldn't have met if it weren't for the cast's beach day outing featured on Episode 11

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

Sandoval revealed as much on a new episode of the Vanderpump Rules After Show.

How did Tom Sandoval and Victoria Lee Robinson meet?

"So, at the waterfront, there were those girls who we were talking to at the table," Sandoval began, referencing the chat he and Tom Schwartz had with a group of women at the bar on the beach. "I stayed in contact with one of the girls and then she asked her friend to come to one of my shows."

Sandoval said that the girl from the beach and her friend — aka Victoria — "had fun" at his show, but it wasn't until they ran into each other once more during a night out that they established a connection.

That fateful evening, "We ended up going to do karaoke, came back to my house, [and] we were hanging out," Sandoval recalled. "We were just friends, and then we were more than that."

Once they were officially dating, Sandoval pulled what Schwartz described on the Vanderpump Rules After Show as "a hard launch," considering he posted photos of Victoria on Valentine's Day

Why Tom Sandoval is dating Victoria Lee Robinson

Sandoval went on to detail why he fell for Victoria, describing her as "super cool" and "very successful" in her career as a model.

"[She] does very well for herself [and] has her own house," he noted.

What's more, Victoria has never watched Vanderpump Rules, nor is she "familiar with it whatsoever." 

"[She] doesn't care about social media following or anything," Sandoval continued. "She's also very generous, she's very sweet, she takes care of people, she's very nurturing, very maternal, and she's spontaneous. We have a lot of fun together."
