Behind-the-Scenes Secrets From Miami

Producer Erin Foye shares what the cast packed in their suitcase and if anyone believed Jax's story about that scar.

By Erin Foye

It's the moment you all have been waiting for all season: Miami! How many outfits does it take to pack for only a couple days? On average with this cast. . .over ten. Watch the cast pack and see what three things our cast never travels without.

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Wed. 9/8c. Stream next day and catch up on past seasons on Peacock.

What Three Things Do You Need to Survive Miami?

Side story: Jax was shopping at G-Star getting some new fresh jeans when he ran straight into the glass door. This story was so unbelievable a member of the crew called G-Star pretending to be his girlfriend to confirm with the staff that it really happened they way said it did. I think Jax messed up his nose a little bit too. Scars are cool though, right?

Everyone arrived at the airport on time -- almost. Vail nearly missed her flight! We all had some fun documenting the whole experience. Tom Sandoval switched seats with Schwartz so he could sit with Ariana. Schwartz ended up across the aisle from Jax.

Jax had a tough time getting into the bathroom. There was a lot of waiting and that Jax just can't sit still (surprise). I got his whole epic odyssey to the restroom on film.

We all made it to Miami in one piece. Once the cast arrived at the Dream Hotel, they unpacked and got settled. Sandoval really really was bummed about his sleeping situation! Tom even tried calling the front desk to try to get another room and learned that all the rooms and suites were taken. Looks like there was no getting around all three boys sharing that bed.

Are you dying to know what everyone packed in their suitcases? I know you are, so I had them open their suitcases just for you.

What Did the Vanderpump Rules Kids Pack for Miami?

Once they showered and unpacked, everyone got ready for their first Miami dinner party at Naked Taco. This restaurant was right next to the hotel and was totally tasty and boozerific. Check out the behind-the-scenes-gallery for some fun snaps from the Naked Taco dinner.


Did you know Schwartz can salsa dance? It only took a couple margaritas for him to work up the courage to show off his skills.

OOOHHH boy! The next morning was boat day! What you didn’t see is that Jax woke up early and worked out. Watch Jax giving us the rundown on his vacation workout routine.

The cast spent about five hours partying on the boat. Captain Scheana had some custom shades and the guys wore Shay's favorite "Party For A Living" tank. Sandavol went the extra mile and had sunglasses made for everyone called "Shay-bans."

The day started with beautiful weather and then the dark skies rolled in and it started to rain. It was scary how fast the weather changed! It was awesome to see how everyone just rolled with the punches and raged on! Check out a few more videos from the whole crazy boat voyage.

After a long day of partying the girls and boys split off and hit the town for even more partying. We had to drop James off because the boys ditched him. Poor guy.

You will have to wait until next week to see what epic trouble our cast gets in after dinner. Want a preview? OK, you got it. 

Let's end our time on a positive note. Schwartz did his own hair on this vacation! He was proud. I was proud. Here is the video of this great accomplishment.

Don't worry in a mere seven days I will be back with more tales from Miami!
