Watch Picked Off
- 1 Season
Picked Off is a American reality show that first premiered on History in 2012. The show is hosted by Joseph P. Scott and features three expert pickers, Stefan Kalinka, Randy Carlson and Hollywood memorabilia dealer and restoration expert, Sean Rich. Each episode of the show sees four contestants battle it out in a series of challenges, with the ultimate goal of finding unique and valuable items that can be sold for a profit.
The show begins with the pickers introducing themselves and showing off their impressive collections, before the contestants are introduced. Each contestant is given $1,000 in cash and is sent out to scour flea markets, antiques stores, swap meets, and other locations to find items that they think will impress the pickers and fetch a good price at auction.
Throughout the day, the contestants must negotiate with sellers, barter for better prices, and use their expertise to identify hidden gems. Once the contestants have found their items, they bring them back to the warehouse where they are assessed by the pickers.
In the first round, each contestant must choose their best item to present to the pickers. The pickers then assess the items based on their historical value, rarity, condition, and potential profit. The contestant with the lowest-scoring item is eliminated, and their remaining items are put up for auction.
The remaining three contestants move on to the next round, where they must choose two more items to present to the pickers. The pickers again assess the items, and the contestant with the lowest-scoring items is eliminated, and their remaining items are put up for auction.
The two remaining contestants then enter the final round, where they must present their final item to the pickers. The pickers then assess the item, and the contestant with the highest-scoring item is declared the winner. The winning contestant gets to keep all the profits from their auctions, while the others go home empty-handed.
Throughout the show, viewers get to see the pickers in action as they assess the items and share their expertise on the history and value of various antiques and collectibles. The contestants are also profiled, giving viewers a glimpse into their interests and expertise in the world of antiques.
One unique aspect of Picked Off is the focus on items with historical significance. The pickers emphasize the importance of preserving history and educating future generations about the past. This emphasis on historical value sets the show apart from other antiques-based reality shows, which often focus on the monetary value of items.
Overall, Picked Off is a fun and engaging reality show that appeals to both antiques enthusiasts and casual viewers. The show offers a unique blend of history, antiques, and competition, making it a must-watch for anyone interested in the world of collectibles.
Picked Off is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (7 episodes). The series first aired on July 1, 2012.
