After days of being promised a shocking “bombshell” that would change everything, “Vanderpump Rules” fans are underwhelmed by what was actually revealed in the final part of the Season 10 reunion.

Instead of revealing a pregnancy, as some suspected, Raquel Leviss simply admitted that her affair with Tom Sandoval had been going on for slightly longer than they originally let on, much to the disappointment of viewers.

“The reveal was quite underwhelming. I mean how much worse could it get. I’m ready for it to die down now. #PumpRules #pumprulesreunion,” one viewer tweeted.

Another added, “So the ‘big reveal’ was that Raquel admitted to hooking up with Sandoval more than once? Girl that’s not some huge reveal. It was so OBVIOUS that they did. I was expecting something more scandalous but I guess. #pumprulesreunion.”

“The reunion was a letdown with lala [Kent] & James [Kennedy] shouting & not letting anyone speak!! What was the big reveal?? Raquel & Tom had sex in Mexico?? That was not big news!!” a third fan chimed in.

Leviss, 28, also revealed in her one-on-one conversation with a “Pump Rules” producer that she and Sandoval, 40, actually did have sex in the home he shared with then-girlfriend Ariana Madix, despite his denial.

“Am I the only one who wasn’t shocked by the ‘reveal’ that Tom and Raquel had sex in Ariana’s house while she was at her grandmas funeral?” an annoyed viewer tweeted. “It’s VERY f–ked up, but that’s how narcissists operate. It was obvious that’s what they did even before Raquel ‘came clean.’”

“So the ‘big reveal’ was that Raquel admitted to hooking up with Sandoval more than once? Girl that’s not some huge reveal,” one fan wrote.

Even the former pageant queen’s admission that she asked Sandoval if Madix, 37, would be interested in becoming a throuple was not enough to blow Bravo fans’ minds as they expected.

“i can’t believe the big reveal is that raquel thought she could just be in a throuple with tom and ariana #PumpRules,” someone said.

Fans had been guessing the big reunion “twist” for weeks after Alex Baskin, the show’s executive producer, told Variety that “new information” came to light after the reunion that could change whether cast members wanted to continue filming.

Sandoval flat-out lied when host Andy Cohen asked him if he and Leviss had been intimate in the home he shared with Madix.

While many fans were not surprised to hear that Sandoval lied about the exact timeline of his months-long affair with his then-girlfriend’s best friend, people were shocked that Leviss went against his wishes to come clean.

Follow Page Six’s coverage of ‘Scandoval’:

“The reveal was nothing we didn’t already know. The biggest surprise was that #Raquel turned on #Sandoval and exposed the lies he was continuing to tell. And we all knew he was manipulating but damn! It was worse than we thought,” someone pointed out.

“I’m so sick of lying,” she sobbed.

“I’m not baffled they did this i’m baffled she’s coming out and saying it #pumprules,” someone chimed in, with anther adding, “The bomb shell is that sandoval didn’t get away with all of his lying.”

Leviss said Sandoval encouraged her lie about the affair timeline because “he feels like it would be less hurtful to say that this wasn’t going on for so long.”

However, she said she couldn’t keep telling half-truths.

“This has f–king killed my soul,” she said through sobs. “I’m so sick of lying, I hate it, I hate being deceitful it’s horrible.”

She hardly reacted as fellow “Vanderpump Rules” stars, including Lala Kent (left), screamed at her.

Leviss’ emotional confession was a far cry from her “unfazed” behavior at the actual reunion.

Fans called her out for having “no compassion or empathy” as she sat stoically while her angry co-stars ripped into her.

“It freaks me out how Raquel has ZERO emotions seeing this entire thing unfold in front of her,” one viewer tweeted last week.
