Do the American Pickers really drive everywhere?
In this way, do American Pickers drive everywhere?
American Pickers makes it seem like Mike and Frank are driving across the country to find treasure in unlikely places. In reality, though, that's not how they get there at all. The driving scenes appear to be almost entirely staged, with B-roll footage filmed of their car driving on certain roads.
Likewise, who died on American Pickers? The week before Thanksgiving, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz dedicated their show “American Pickers” to Morkunas, who died Aug. 8, 2017 from Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, primary CNS; an aggressive cancer in the brain.
One may also ask, what happened to Frank on American Pickers?
Frank Fritz was arrested on July 30, 2017, around I-80 mile marker 282. Subsequently, he pleaded guilty under OWI charge (Operative While Intoxicated). Police stated that he was pulled over on the wrong way with a slurred speech and was under the influence of Xanax and alcohol.
How real is American Pickers?
American Pickers is a reality show, which means that there's always a bit of acting involved. A lot of the driving scenes in the show are totally staged. Sometimes they don't even get to their filming locations in that van. It's just B-roll footage to set up the story.
