Oh, to live in Puerto Rico with your significant other. It’s the dream, right? For American Pickers star Danielle Colby, it’s actually reality.
Die-hard fans of the show know that the eccentric and observant Danielle Colby has called the beautiful island of Puerto Rico home. The personality is often posting photos from her life on the island on her Instagram.
When she’s not out picking with Mike Wolfe, the American Pickers star seems to spend as much time as she can in Puerto Rico. Her latest update? A photo with her fiance Jeremy Scheuch that captures their love quite nicely.
The pair are simply living. While Jeremy delivers a funny mouth-agape look at the camera, Colby looks to be laughing her heart out. Couple goals in every way.

‘American Pickers’ Star Danielle Colby Found Escape Through Picking, Burlesque
As kids, most people think their parents are strict, no matter what. It differs from household to household, but “strict” is subjective. But then you hear Danielle Colby talk about her childhood, and you realize, “oh, there are levels to this.”
The American Pickers star went into detail about her childhood with Fox News. During the interview, Colby explained that having a strict upbringing led to her pension for the risque and eccentric, namely burlesque.
“The interesting thing is I grew up a Jehovah’s Witness and I had a very, very strict upbringing. So burlesque wasn’t something that was really around for me. I couldn’t be around it. It was new and taboo.”
It’s almost a classic movie story. Kid is sheltered by their parents, and then they end up “rebelling” by finding those “taboo” things they could never interact with growing up. But to be fair, burlesque is certainly an adult interest.
But coming to know the performance form is something that woke up the Danielle Colby we see on American Pickers today.
“The burlesque journey has really been an interesting one for me,” Colby said. “It’s part of my life journey, my relationship with my body and my relationship with sexuality. It’s deep and it really started from a place of anxiety and depression. It really helped me blossom into a person who is less anxious and less depressed.”
