In Season 3, however, things began to change. Sandoval (and presumably the rest of the cast) began to take home "upwards of $15,000 an episode."
You Do the Math
The show filmed 21 episodes that season, so suffice it to say, Tom and company enjoyed a considerable raise.
But that's about where the raises stopped for Sandoval and company.
Granted, he and Tom Schwartz have other revenue streams, including the bar they recently opened with Lisa, but Bravo is reportedly paying them about the same as it did back in 2014.
In fact, certain main cast members never even reached the Toms' salaries. Sources say that Scheana Shay, for example, makes just $10,000 per episode.
To be clear, the entire VPR cast is doing just fine, particularly as the show cranks out upwards of 20 episodes a season, a massive order for any reality show.
