How Long Before the Guys of "American Pickers" End Up on "Hoarders"


In American Pickers, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz travel the United States looking for diamonds of Americana in the 'rough' we call the average person's home, backyard, barn, shed, basement, etc. The amount of stuff they come across boggles the mind, and what's more enthralling is how diverse it all is. Most of the stuff they find they clean up and sell for a sizable profit, however they also remark how they plan on keeping a fair share of items as well. If American Pickers goes on for a few more seasons, Wolfe and Fritz are going to have a definite hoarding problem. Granted, they're hoarding some genuinely cool, retro signs and large classic carnival rides, but still - they've accumulated a lot of stuff.

The third season of American Pickers is now out on DVD, and if you want to know how you can win a copy, just keep reading.

In small towns, and along America's back roads, treasures are waiting to be uncovered - valuable relics from our history that are hidden in junk piles, buried in barns and stacked in garages. It takes experts to find them - and turn rust to riches. American Pickers follows two of the most skilled "pickers" - Mike Wolfe, owner of Antique Archaeology, and his business partner, Frank Fritz - as they hunt down objects with historical, collectible and pop culture value that have been long forgotten by their owners. Along the way, they meet people whose own stories open a window into American lives and history. In the third season, Mike and Frank explore a century-old amusement park, pick their way through a geodesic dome and after years of begging, finally allow Danielle to get in on the action.
