American Pickers fans are excited after the show shared a Frank Fritz clip. Currently, the History Channel show is airing Season 24 and none of the episodes aired to date have ever had a mention of Frank Fritz. Now, fans are both happy and surprised at this clip that was shared by American Pickers’ official Facebook page. So, what was this clip about? Keep reading to find out the details!
Mike Wolfe Wishes For Frank Fritz To Return
Frank Fritz is currently under conservatorship and recovering from the stroke that led to his hospitalization. However, fans wonder if Mike Wolfe would ever be open to welcoming his former co-host back to the show. Back in December, while talking to the paparazzi, Mike claimed that he and Frank are still friends and he wished for him to return to the show.
Although Frank Fritz hasn’t responded to this, in the past he revealed that neither Mike Wolfe nor the History Channel approached him to return to the show. So, it looks like the 57-year-old’s chances of returning to the reality show are slim to none. Yet, fans are happy that he resurfaced, at least via an old episode from the series.
Frank & Mike Travel To Italy For A Motorcycle
On Facebook, American Pickers posted a clip from an episode aired in Season 10. Titled, The Italian Job: Part 1, the episode originally aired in 2013. In the clip, Mike and Frank meet with the former’s old friend, Flavio as they travel through Italy. The hosts end up bargaining for Flavio’s Zundapp KS 750 motorcycle and sidecar. It was developed for and used by the German Wehrmacht during World War II.
The clip also showed Mike asking his friend to come over to his office to talk business. The American Pickers duo started bargaining with an offer of €7,000, while Flavio rejected the offer stating it wasn’t enough. However, after multiple rounds of negotiations, the price was finally settled at €8,000.
Did Mike Wolfe Reject Frank Fritz For His Brother?
While the duo looked happy in each other’s company in this clip, Frank Fritz revealed during a 2021 interview that they are feuding.
He said, “I haven’t talked to Mike in two years. He knew my back was messed up, but he didn’t call me up and ask how I was doing. That’s just how it is. The show is tilted towards him 1,000 percent. I can’t even bend that far down to show you how much.”
Frank Fritz further claimed that Mike wanted his brother Robbie to be his replacement and that might be the reason he alienated him.
