Even though we have yet to learn a premiere date, we CANNOT WAIT to see Jax Taylor, Stassi Schroeder, and the rest of the SURvers back for Season 6 of Vanderpump Rules. The resident bad boy — who has somewhat calmed down after meeting his longtime girlfriend, Brittany Cartwright — exclusively told In Touch that this is not going to be his favorite season.

“It’s rough. It’s really, really rough. Out of all the six seasons that we’ve done, this was the worst for me. The worst. I’m absolutely dreading it. I’m probably going to go into hiding,” he said during a Facebook Live last week. “It’s bad, I mean — there are times where it’s fine but I would say a good 85 percent of it, it’s a rough season. Every season that we do this we’re always like, ‘What is going to happen this season?’ And sure enough — that’s what’s crazy about our show, more stuff goes on when we’re not filming than when we do film, you know?”

The reality star continued, “We’re really organic and have been friends for so long. That’s why our show works so well — because this is happening whether the cameras are there or not. They just so happen to throw a camera on, then they get really worried because they’re always like, ‘Don’t talk to each other, don’t hang out with each other,’ and we’re like, ‘No, we’re friends in real life. We’ve been friends for 15 years. Just because we’re doing a show doesn’t mean we’re gonna stop.’ That becomes a fake show and we don’t want that.”

We are seriously dying to know what makes this season so rough for Jax — considering we’ve already seen him get arrested, cheat, lie, and get caught in pregnancy scandals. What IS important, however, is that although his spin-off series Jax & Brittany Take Kentucky did not end on the best note for him and his lady, all is well today in paradise.

“We’ve been great! We’ve been working out together, we go to our boot camps every morning, I’ve lost 30 pounds, she’s lost weight, she’s looking great, better than ever! She’s happy, she’s doing well,” Jax gushed. “I think everyone in life sometimes goes through a slump. I was going through a slump too — I was heavy, I was fat, I was sitting around, sleeping in, eating — we both were. I just thought as a couple, it’s fun to do things together. It was more of a push to each other, you know? We can motivate each other, that’s all it was, and everyone was like, ‘Well, you did this and this and this.’ I’m like, ‘Are you kidding me? Just let me live!'”
