Patrick continued to reveal that his love for reality and production led to his “cool job” on Vanderpump Rules.

In addition to sharing details about his career path, Patrick also spoke about how he doesn’t let drama affect how he works with the cast and how he can relate to some of their difficult situations while filming.

Patrick McDonald on why he relates to the Vanderpump Rules cast

Moments after, Patrick opened up about how his background on reality TV has allowed him to connect with the cast on a different level. “I think that one of my biggest strengths as a producer is I’m coming into with empathy and understanding that most producers don’t have,” he said.

Patrick also mentioned how he helps guide the Vanderpump Rules cast when dealing with sensitive topics on camera because they find comfort in him. “I learned that by doing it, so when I approach a cast member now, I have that experience to draw upon,” he admitted.
