What ever happened to the twin boys from Full House?

September 25, 2009 Leave a comment
Everybody that was born in the 80’s remembers their childhood days of watching “Full House”.  And of course who could forget that gorgeous Uncle Jesse, John Stamos, and his wife Becky, Lori Laughlin?  But what about the twin boys that played the couple’s sons?  Well for the first newborn baby months of their TV lives, the twins were played by Daniel and Kevin Renteria.  The real stars however were Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit, who played Nicky and Alex Katsopolis.  When they were 18 months old, their mother auditioned them for the parts, and they soon took over the roles.  Blake and Dylan were on “Full House” for the last 3 of 8 seasons that the show ran.  By the end of the final season, the boys were 5 years old.  Their mother pulled them from the acting business until they were old enough to decide whether or not to continue an actor’s life themselves.
It’s been 11 years since their roles on “Full House” ended with the program itself.  Today, at 18 years of age, they run a charity based fan club with their mother.  It provides fans with a look of their past days on “Full House” as well as their current days.  They have not been in any films or any other programs, other than a reality tv show when they were 12, since their Full House days.  They just run a normal life now.

The UM Patriots

So whatever happened to the UM Patriots?  It’s been a couple years since I have seen anything new from them, and upon searching the web, could not find the answer.  Perhaps they graduated and in doing so ceased their shananagins.  Oh wait WHO are the UM Patriots you ask?  The UM Patriots is a group of students from the University of Michigan that videotaped pranks they would do around the school.  Their videos, although sometimes quite simple – which kind of adds to the humor, are quite entertaining. 

My favorite, would have to be the Pac-Man prank, where one student dresses up as Pac-Man, and the other as one of the ghosts.  The ghost chases PacMan throughout the school, through the library, and the computer lab, screaming, as students and teachers just watch.  Perhaps my favorite part that I took from it, was saying “wakawakawakawaka” over and over again to my friends.

Then there is the “Orkin Man” videos where one of the students dresses up as an Orkin Man and pretends to be checking the classroom for termite while the professor is giving a lecture.  Out of no where a giant fly jumps out from behind a wall onto the Orkin Man and the two start going at it.   In the end, the Orkin Man sprays down his opponent, and in victory, a girl from the class jumps up and yells “Oh Orkin Man!”, and he swoops her up and carries her away.

And who can forget the Asian Superman one?  In the middle of class you hear a cell phone go off.  An asian male jumps up and answers the phone, then quickly chucking it at the ground, rips off his clothes, only to reveal a Superman costume underneath, as he flees out the door to go save the day.

And last but not least, one you will not find on their website (www.umpatriots.com), is their Ninja video.  The group of UM Patriots come running through classrooms causing havoc, and tossing papers all over the place, only to run right out.
