The History Channel Made A Stink About Danielle At The Start Of American Pickers

l intro 1680305349

Danielle Colby fielding phone calls and telling Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz where to go was integral to the show’s beginnings. However, History didn’t see the value in her inclusion off the bat. She still worked with the duo, but everything she did was off-camera. Slowly but surely, the crew began to recognize the potential that was there, with Wolfe going on to say, “After the crew saw us for about a week in the shop, and what we were doing, they started filming her on their iPhones and sent the footage to History and then decided to bring her into the show.”

Wolfe later explained that Colby kind of made the show what it was. Instead of it just being two guys going to different houses to look for antiques, there’s an added element of someone telling them where to go. There’s an additional character within the show, and it certainly didn’t hurt that she was an attractive woman; as Wolfe elaborated, “It brings a girl into it. History viewership is 60% male. The first thing I told her was I wanted her to do it because I want to make a show about antiques that no one has ever seen before, and you look like you have nothing to do with antiques. You’re a smart ass, you’re a girl, and we need a girl.”

Wolfe’s instincts proved to be fortuitous. “American Pickers” got excellent ratings for a cable network, and Colby became a runaway star. She’s even found success as a burlesque dancer, proving she is, indeed, a woman of many talents.
