Tom Sandoval is giving an update on his love life following his very public love triangle.

The Vanderpump Rules star, 40, confirmed he’s single in an interview with Extra at the iHeartRadio Music Festival 2023 in Las Vegas. “I am single, yes,” he said at the event.

As for how he’s getting back out there, Sandoval said dating is “awkward as it is.”

“It’s just weird,” he said. “It feels like a job interview, I don’t usually like to go on dates unless I know them already. I would rather hang out with them and like their friends, see who they surround themselves with … see how they act when they get drunk, then later go out on dates.”
