American Pickers follows co-hosts Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz (and their store manager Danielle Colby) as they travel across American to find long-lost memorabilia, special relics, and secret treasure.

And, while finding these hidden gems everywhere from the basement of people’s homes to total junkyards, the two hosts also connect with incredible people along the way.

This show has been on TV for a whopping 21 seasons if you can believe it, and while it’s still going strong there are a lot of things that have happened off-camera.
