‘American Pickers’ Star and Former Costar Are ‘Extremely Different’
As “American Pickers” prepares for its next journey, it appears longtime fans of the hit show won’t see Mike Wolfe’s former costar, Frank Fritz, returning any time soon. After the pair’s strange falling out, with several key details as to what happened still blurry, show star Danielle Colby previously revealed just how different the two men are.
Foremost, Danielle Colby has most recently condemned Frank Fritz following the former “American Pickers” star’s feud with Mike Wolfe. However, when it comes to the two men’s personalities, she confirmed that the ways in which they behave on screens is pretty much how they are as individuals.
During a 2012 interview, Colby highlighted the former “American Pickers” costars are “extremely different.”
As to Mike Wolfe, Colby compared the star to an enthusiastic and energetic 8-year-old boy. She stated, “He’s a prankster and a jokester,” and “always the center of attention.”
However, she also pointed out that, like little boys, he’s also affectionate and sweet.
As to Fritz, Colby stated, “Frankie is the exact opposite. He’s the old man of the group.” She expanded, stating the former costar was strict with schedules and “like[d] things a certain way.” However, she also said that, despite his strict personality, he has “a huge, huge personality.”
Perhaps the pair’s differences are what led to their split on “American Pickers” in the first place.
