John Oliver Dings Tom Sandoval & Says Pigs Are Smarter Than ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Star

Tom Sandoval of Vanderpump Rules continues to be the punchline of jokes for late-night shows and John Oliver took a swipe at the Bravo star on the latest episode of Last Week Tonight.

Oliver took on the scam known as “pig butchering,” which is when scammers fatten up their victims with the promise of money and end up scamming them out of money.

“Imagine being the victim of this scam, turning on the news and suddenly learning the shorthand for people in your situation is — the pigs,” Oliver said.

He continued, “Although, I will say, it could’ve been worse. Pigs are awesome. They are one of the most intelligent animals on the planet. They are smarter than dogs, most three-year-olds and Tom Sandoval.”

Watch the moment in the clip below.

Oliver, who is a fan of Bravo’s programming, is the latest comedian to joke about Sandoval. On Saturday night, SNL also called out the reality TV star, labeling him a “pure narcissist.”

Sandoval lives in infamy after cheating on Ariana Madix with their Vanderpump Rules co-star Rachel Leviss. The affair became known as “Scandoval” and a pop culture moment that was a turning point for the show’s stars and the series itself with a noticeable rise in ratings.

The Bravo star recently came under fire after, in a New York Times profile, he compared the scandal’s impact to George Floyd and the O.J. Simpson case.

After the interview was published, backlash ensued and Sandoval released a statement apologizing for making those remarks.

“My intentions behind the comments I made in New York Times Magazine were to explain the level of national media attention my affair received. The comparison was inappropriate and ignorant. I’m incredibly sorry and embarrassed,” Sandoval said.
