Watch American Pickers


History channel's hit reality series American Pickers has put a new face on the world of antiquing. The show follows professional Iowa-based pickers Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they crisscross their way around the country in search for the next honey hole of antiques and collectibles to restore and resell. As they say in the show's opening, "What most people see as junk, we see as dollar signs." Digging through rusted mountains of riffraff in people's barns, basements, and outbuildings Mike and Frank uncover unique treasures of all kinds from early motorcycles to vintage oil cans and advertising to taxidermy elephant heads. Each piece comes with a story and history all its own that provides the audience with a deeper understanding and appreciation of America's roots.

American Pickers is about far more than the items discovered, though. It is just as much about the often eccentric individuals Mike and Frank meet along their journey through the back roads of the nation. The pickers never know what to expect as they pull up in their business Antique Archaeology's Sprinter van and knock on the door of a potential seller, adding to the sense of suspense and excitement of the program. Sometimes met with a shotgun and other times a cheerful Mrs. Clause-like granny figure, Mike and Frank introduce the audience to the diverse range of personalities that make America what it is.

At the heart of the show are everyday people with fascinating stories to share through the things they have collected. American Pickers' Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz take viewers on an exciting treasure hunt through these people's homes for unexpected objects buried deep under years of dirt and grime. Not only do they explore unspoiled pockets of the country, but America's rich history as well.
