Frank Fritz was raised in Davenport, and studied at Sudlow Intermediate School where he met his future friend Mike Wolfe. As a child he loved picking up various interesting rocks, as well as colourful cans which later evolved into huge collections. His friend Mike was interested in collecting old jack-o-lanterns and bicycles. Both boys had a huge passion for ‘picking’ and collecting, and Fritz began helping Wolfe to restore old bicycles. As an adult he began working as a fire and safety inspector, but wasn’t satisfied, feeling that he would like to do a job somehow related to antiques, regardless that he continued working as an inspector for 25 years. However, concurrently he decided to start the collection of trinkets – early on he sold a trinket bought for $15 for the fantastic sum of $475, and it was then that Frank realised that it could be a very good source of his net worth, and which would allow him to do the job of his dreams.

In 2002, Fritz resigned from the position of fire and safety inspector, and opened the “Frank’s Finds” antique shop, which was to become the main source of Frank’s net worth for a while. His job included not only running the shop, but also travelling from state to state looking for valuable antique items that might be sold in his shop. Subsequently, in 2010 he was invited to co-host the television series “American Pickers” alongside his childhood friend Mike Wolfe; the series is directed by Anthony Mastanduno, and was created by Mike Wolfe himself. In the series, Mike and Frank are seen traveling around the US, exploring outbuildings, sheds, barns and homes. Later, their findings are sold, or even added to their own collections. Fritz has a long list of clients among whom are famous athletes, businessmen, musicians, interior designers and collectors who are ready to pay large sums for a wanted item. “American Pickers” is very popular show, and has an audience encompassing all age groups. Currently, it has very high ratings which continues to rival such shows as “American Idol”, so maintaining Fran’s net worth very easily. Of course interest in this personality has seen Fritz appear as a guest on such as “The Late Show with David Letterman”, “Pawn Stars”, “American Restoration”, and “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” among several others, also boosting his bank account.

In his personal life, Frank Fritz isn’t married but he is in a relationship, however, he keeps his private life to himself, and very little information about it is revealed. As a result, lots of rumours spread suggesting that Frank Fritz is gay, which are totally unfounded. He still lives in Davenport.
