Mike Lookinland spent most of his post-Brady career in showbiz working behind the scenes as an electrical and camera technician. Like many former child stars, he struggled to find his career footing after his biggest role. He currently owns Just Add Water Custom Concrete in Salt Lake City, and he got to show off his work in 2019’s A Very Brady Renovation on HGTV. In 2022, he joined costars Barry Williams and Christopher Knight as mummies on FOX’s The Masked Singer.

She cohosted the Ober and Olsen Los Angeles talk radio show in the 1990s, and her Two Chicks Talkin’ Politics radio show gig ended in controversy in 2016 after homophobic statements and hate speech were revealed.
