A fantastic showman, Lance stole fans' hearts with a range of chuckle-some tricks. In one episode, he set out to make doughnuts in a motorboat while the rest of the crew was busy pouring their every might into finishing a cabin. In another, he cozied up in a hammock with a bag of Cheetos — proving once again that he has everything it takes to become a reality TV show star. 

"That’s really how he rolls," Chase confirmed in a previous interview with Down East.

As a clip posted on the Maine Cabin Masters Facebook page reveals, Lance's life isn't all about fun. According to the video, he built a house for himself just as staggeringly beautiful as the ones commissioned by the clients. An avid fan of everything nature- and wildlife-related, he even populated "Lance-land" with dozens of ducks, chickens, and the like.

Unfortunately for fans, Lance's current whereabouts are shrouded in secrecy. He doesn't have an Instagram or a Twitter account, which makes it all the harder for those eager to track him down and learn more about what he had been up to since leaving the show. Even worse, he hasn't posted on Facebook since 2013 — putting an end to his career on social media with a post about a fetching sailboat.
