I love American Pickers, especially Dannie D! It wouldn’t be the same show without her. And as bad as I feel that Frank is sick, personally, I’m glad he’s not on the show now. He makes my blood boil when he cheats people on how much their antiques are worth! I’ve never seen someone so cheap in my life. I think he is still squeezing the first penny he ever made, that’s how cheap the man is. I’ve only seen him pay up for one thing in all the years I’ve watched the show and it was for another oil can for himself. A 1908 Harley Davidson. He actually paid $3,500 for an oil can. 🙄🙄. Now Mike, he’s a good man. He’s fair and will pay people what he can. I wish there were more people in the world like Dannie and Mike. People would smile a whole lot more if there were. I only hope Dannie D stays with the show, after all, without her, I don’t think there would be a show, at least not with the ratings they have now, and they sure wouldn’t be in their 11th year of a successful show. What is that? 22 seasons?
Mike Wolf’s wife has filed for divorce reported in Williamson County news today.
Too bad Frank won’t be returning to the show. Frank and Mike made the show as a team. Without one of them the show won’t be the same, so I will opt out from watching the show. I seen one of the shows with Mike and some other guy and it’s just not as good as it was with Frank. It kind of reminds me when Charlie Sheen left 2 and a half men. The show just wasn’t the same or nearly as good as the original.
American Pickers is dead without Frank.
