Everyone on the new Vanderpump Rules spin-off, The Valley, is in a relationship, except for one cast member. Zack Wickham is Brittany Cartwright's best friend from college. As a single gay man, his presence provides a healthy dose of realness for the group, and that's very necessary. The marriages and relationships within the main cast are fraught with issues of infidelity, familial problems, and interpersonal group dynamics.

Zack is a friend of Brittany’s as well as a former roommate of Jasmine Goode, who also joins the cast alongside him as a friend on the show. Zack and Jasmine both bring LGBTQIA representation to the cast, as Jasmine has been in a long-term relationship with her girlfriend, Melissa Marie. Based on his Bravo profile, it’s clear that Zack will act not only as a voice of reason but as a “mediator.” He may be the group mediator, but what job does Zack do for a living?

Zack's college degree gives some insight into his job.

Zack and Brittany became besties while they were both working towards their undergrad degrees. Zack attended the University of Louisville, where he earned a degree in communication and media studies. Brittany attended school at Eastern Kentucky University, where she was studying to become a nurse. Like many people who form tight friendship bonds in college, the two remained close after leaving Kentucky.

Zack put his communication and media studies to good use after receiving his undergraduate degree.

After receiving his bachelor's degree, Zack moved on to work as a communications analyst while attending grad school. He studied at Bellarmine University, also located in Louisville, where he received a master's degree in business administration. He moved to Los Angeles, where he soon became the executive assistant for an unknown celebrity. Zack has since stopped working for them and is now self-employed as a freelance public relations and media consultant.

Zack loves living the good life in Los Angeles.

Working as a freelance consultant essentially means that Zack is his own boss and, therefore, can live his life as he wants to. According to his Bravo profile, Zack “is a gym-goer who loves partying and dancing the night away in the West Hollywood scene.” The freedom of being a single man who is his own boss and has no kids means that his presence is essential for the show. Love and past feuds often come into play within the cast, and Zack will be an objective voice on The Valley.

Zack made a few appearances on ‘Vanderpump Rules.’

Many of the former SUR employees are well aware of Zack, and he even appeared in a few episodes of Vanderpump Rules. As Brittany’s best friend, Zack was able to befriend several other cast members on the show. He is particularly close to Kristen Doute, who has quite a penchant for drama. He was also in Brittany’s bridal party at her wedding to Jax Taylor, which was featured in an episode during Season 8 of the series.
