The former star revealed that they weren’t paid much during the show and he was not left rich by his association with Hollywood. Lookinland works with his son, Scott and told Inside Edition in 2016:

"How much more real could you be than making slabs of concrete? [...] You'd be shocked and amazed at how little they paid us to do The Brady Bunch. That's why I need a job."
