With Frank Fritz Out, This American Pickers Star Is The Clear Fan Favorite

Road trips, treasure hunting, and history are all rolled into wholesome family entertainment on History's "American Pickers." Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz kicked off the show in 2010, traveling around some of the most rural corners of the United States looking for lost or forgotten pieces of America's past to fill their store, Antique Archeology. But after a pretty nasty feud between Wolfe and Fitz, Fitz is no longer a part of the show — and as of Season 23, Mike has a new co-host and co-picker, his brother Robbie Wolfe.

Frank's departure from "American Pickers" after so many episodes of uncovering America's history scattered around the country has left a hole in the hearts of the fans who loved seeing him dig around on each property. More than a few times, they've come across parts of history that can't be replicated today, like old signs, memorabilia, and even a few old vehicles they've been able to restore to their former glory. However, it isn't just Mike and Frank that keep this treasure hunt on the move, though, as an entire team of people makes the wheels of time on this never-ending historical road trip move. With Frank no longer on the show, fans of "American Pickers" still have one particular member of the crew that they consider to be a favorite.

Danielle Colby is a long-time favorite

A December 2021 poll on Reddit asked the question, "Who is your favorite non-Frank co-picker?" Referring to different members of the "American Pickers" crew that not only keep the flow of the show moving but, on occasion, even join in on the picks themselves. Out of the 52 votes, 21 of them went to Danielle Colby, who has joined in on more than a few picks, uncovered some great finds over the years, and made strong connections with the property owners that allow the pickers to hunt for their treasure. Danielle is a longtime member of the "American Pickers" crew and knows the ins and outs of the road and the historical background of plenty of the finds, all while running the show back home at Antique Archeology.

On more than one occasion, fans have gone into detail on why they love Danielle so much, including in a Twitter thread that praised everything from how she runs the company to her support of Frank. One fan specified, "It's gotta be [Danielle] driving that little 3 wheeled car as the 'company' car!! Too funny!!"

Of course, fans aren't the only ones who appreciate Danielle. In an episode of the show, when she planned a trip to the Field of Dreams to surprise Mike for her 10-year work anniversary, Mike noted, "It's such a Danielle move to put others in front of herself." Her sense of humor, work ethic, and selflessness make Danielle a fan favorite on "American Pickers."
