American Pickers host Robbie Wolfe was caught in the middle of an Elvis herd. The new host of the History Channel series was photographed at an Elvis party just weeks before Frank Fritz suffered a massive stroke. For some reason, the picture resurfaced and has made headlines this weekend. Robbie had so much fun that he posted the picture twice.
However, this new photo has ticked off fans. More calls for Robbie’s firing continue as Frank fights for his life. The fan favorite remains in the hospital as he recovers. Each day gets better for the reality star, but he still has a long way to go.
New American Pickers host attends Elvis party
According to Robbie Wolfe’s Instagram account, he attended a party that had Elvis Presley impersonators. The streetside event took place in Iowa, which is also Frank’s home state. Robbie shared a photo of himself surrounded by the Elvis impersonators at the Bix 7 Road Race in Davenport.
Take a closer look and you’ll notice the new American Pickers cast member. Robbie wears a navy blue polo with light-wash jeans. He also points at the camera and smiles. There were many Elvis lookalikes and fellow attendees with him at the event.
Robbie Wolfe looked like he had a good time at the event, which is held in honor of jazz musician Bix Beiderbecke, per The Sun. The American Pickers newbie captioned the post: “Good times Bix Road Race.” His younger brother Mike took to the comment section with a series of red heart emojis.
The shocking Instagram post comes just weeks before Frank’s shocking health battle. Last week, he was admitted to the hospital after suffering a stroke. He was found on the floor of his home. At the time, Mike took to Instagram to ask fans for prayers.
Robbie replaced Frank after his firing in July 2021. Frank last appeared on an episode in March 2020. American Pickers saw their highest ratings during that time. It declined to under one million viewers earlier this year.
Why did Robbie Wolfe replace Frank Fritz?
It’s still unclear as to why the History Channel fired Frank. They moved on with the Season 23 promo by introducing Robbie as the new host. The original American Pickers cast member admitted that he wanted to get back to work as soon as possible. Frank was at home recovering from grueling back surgery before the network fired him.
He didn’t do anything that warranted a firing. However, Frank hinted that the network tried to push him out the door. He thinks money is the reason why he’s no longer at the show. He was claimed the fan favorite of the long-running series.
