Early life

Mike Wolfe was born on November 6, 1964 in Joliet, Illinois. He was raised by his mother in small town of Bettendorf and even as a child he used to go around the neighborhood and picked through the trash in search for something interesting.

It was pretty obvious that he will be doing something similar when he grows up and that this strange habit will somehow be a part of his career.

When he wasn’t walking around the neighborhood in search for hidden treasures, Mike was riding his bicycle. He became very interested in competitive bicycle racing so he started training more seriously and even competed in serious competitions.

Career and reality TV

Mike decided to open up his first antique store. After few years of successful business he was offered a unique chance to start a project he couldn’t even think of. Discovery Channel came up with an idea to make a show about antique objects and make it fun and informational at the same time.

The show started airing in 2010 and Mike appeared on our screens together with Frank Fritz. This show combined everything he loved, antiques and sharing information about them to the audience as well as traveling.

The show American Pickers became a huge success and in his first season it attracted a ton of viewers. It was something never seen before that gave the audience a chance to learn something about history in a fun and innovative way.

Together with his on screen partner, Frank, Mike travels around US in search for rare objects and items inside people’s garages. He then makes an offer to them, collects the item and takes it back to his store.

Show gave Mike the opportunity to expand his business so he now owns a company that is called Rustoration. His company specializes in restoration and selling the products to customers. Mike shared his life stories in two books that in the end brought him almost 2$ million.

With the show and his business Mike has a solid net worth of 4$ million that will probably be expanding in the future.

He has also started a forum called Kid Pickers that gathers children from all around the United States, and helps them share stories about things they find. He wanted to help them share their stories and adventures with other kids, and make them become true treasure seeking adventurists.

Mike is a big professional so his items have sold over the years to many famous art dealers and art enthusiasts, which only brings more popularity to his still-growing business.

Personal life

Mike is married to Jodi Faeth. They have one daughter, Charlie, together. Before this couple got married they were in a happy relationship for almost 17 years, which is quite impressive. The family is very private and there weren’t any rumors about Mike’s private life so far.

Mike still adores bicycles and often shares info about them on his show. since he was a professional competitor for one time during his earlier years he gets over excited when he sees an antique ride in someone’s garage.

He is especially interesting to the audience because of sense of humor and large knowledge about antique objects. He helped make history fun to so many people and that is the main reason they love him.
