By Allison Crist

How to Watch

That's not to say that the Toms' friendship hasn't been put to the test, though. Vanderpump Rules Season 10 and everything that came after marked a particularly tough time for Schwartz and Sandoval's relationship, and while the pair is currently in a good place, Vanderpump Rules Season 11 is sure to present them its fair share of challenges as well.

So, in celebration of both the Toms' bond and the upcoming Vanderpump Rules Season 11 premiere on Tuesday, Jan. 30, we're looking back at Schwartz and Sandoval's best friendship moments from over the years. Be sure to check out the below episode watch guide to fully relive them yourself ahead of Vanderpump Rules' highly-anticipated return.

Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval's Best Friendship Episodes of Vanderpump Rules

Season 4, Episode 9: What Happened in Vegas

Schwartz and Sandoval gave their then-girlfriends — Katie Maloney and Ariana Madix, respectively — the surprise of a lifetime when they unveiled the tattoos they got in their honor. Schwartz famously inked a "Bubba" tattoo on his butt, while Sandoval opted for Ariana's initial in flames that ended up looking like bacon.

Season 4, Episode 10: No Strings Attached

Schwartz finally proposed to Katie, but not before sharing a sweet moment with Sandoval as they looked back on how far they'd come. As Sandoval put it in an emotional confessional interview, "I can't help but feel a sense of pride in knowing that I have at least helped shape Schwartz a little bit. Our friendship started from a Craigslist ad. Schwartz was living in Florida and he had dreams of moving to Hollywood. I just had a real deadbeat roommate beforehand. We had the same name, we were the same age, same initials, it just seemed like fate. Crazy to see how far this friendship has come."

Season 5, Episode 3: Call It Like I See It

Schwartz asked both Sandoval and Jax Taylor to be his groomsmen in the most Schwartz-way possible: with a horrible prank. 

Season 5, Episode 15: Beads, Beers and TearsSeason 5, Episode 16: Man Tears and Braziers, and Season 5, Episode 17: Drag Battle

This trio of episodes is huge for Schwartz and Sandoval's friendship, as they feature everything from Sandoval bestowing the "No. 1 Tom" title onto Schwartz to Sandoval tearfully defending Schwartz while in full drag. Most importantly, the pair shares the kiss that will later be plastered on the walls of Tom Tom.

Season 5, Episode 19: Triple Trouble and Season 5: Episode 20: Taco Tuesday, Wedding Wednesday

Jax and Sandoval went out of their way (and their budgets) to arrange for Schwartz's triplet brothers to fly in for his and Katie's wedding. The result was an emotional reunion as Schwartz declared, "I will never, for as long as I live, ever forget this. It's truly the nicest thing anyone's ever done for me."
