Peter Madrigal has held his position at SUR for years on 'Vanderpump Rules.'

According to his Bravo TV profile, Peter was originally hired as a busboy for SUR back in 2008 during the early days of the impending global recession. He would eventually earn himself a server/bartender position. In an enviable climb up the employment ladder, Peter would be granted a managerial position in 2011. Two years later in 2013, he began appearing in episodes of Vanderpump Rules as a recurring cast member.

Despite being a regular presence in the restaurant, Peter admitted in an interview with Bravo that he tries to avoid all of the reality show drama that ensues within his establishment.

"I'm not going to be able to be managing SUR and [be] involved in drama," Peter explained. "That's not good, you know what I mean? There always has to be someone with a level head through all the chaos involved."

Interestingly enough, his LinkedIn profile also lists several side hustles in real estate and podcasts.

In recent seasons, Peter has gone from a recurring member of the cast to a guest role, suggesting that his screen time has been scaled back. In the past, he has expressed interest in eventually leaving SUR to open his own lounge.

However, Peter admitted during Season 10 that he doesn't plan to leave his current job just yet, much to SUR owner Lisa Vanderpump's relief.

Peter has been exploring other ventures throughout his career. He continues to work as a part-time real estate agent and often posts cocktail recipes on his highly active Instagram account with more than 287,000 followers. As for Vanderpump Rules, expect to keep seeing Peter at SUR for the foreseeable future.

Season 11 of Vanderpump Rules premieres on Jan. 30, 2024, at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
