American reality star Frank Fritz is someone who has his life blessed with earning from something that he loves doing. He is an antique collector and antique shop owner who is best known for co-hosting American Pickers, an American reality television series. In the show, Frank and his fellow antique and collectible picker, Mike Wolfe, travel the United States to buy items for resale, clients, or their personal collections.

Net Worth, Salary and Income
When Frank started as a fire inspector, he was never delighted with covering areas from Des Moines to Cedar Falls, Iowa. However, his fundamental nature of collecting stuff led him to pick up firehouse-related ornaments that he found during his job as a fire inspector.
The idea of turning his fundamental nature into a career was born when Frank sold one of his items for $475. After that, he up and left his fire inspecting job of 25 years and started his antique shop in 2002. Frank began to running the shop, Antique Archeology Shop, in Le Claire, Iowa, with his school friend, Mike Wolfe. The two buddies went around the country to collect antique items. Following this, Frank was even able to move his passion into the TV industry.
From his ventures of collecting and selling antique items, Frank carries a net worth of $4 million.
Dating, Girlfriend, Affairs
Frank is quite the master when it comes to hiding his personal life and romantic affairs. He has successfully covered that part of his life as of now.
However, there was a time when Frank was not so reluctant to shed light on his romantic life. In 2016, Frank was dating his partner, Diann. He was very unhesitant to flaunt pictures of his partner on his social media platforms. On top of showing off his relationship, Frank also openly shared pictures of them on social media.
However, the last time Frank ever posted any of their pictures was on 7th September 2017. He revealed nothing after that and never even disclosed if he had parted ways with Diann.
Parents, Family, and Siblings
Frank Fritz was born to his parents Bill Fritz and Susan Fritz. Not much is known about his family or his siblings (if he has any).
Frank started collecting stuff when he was a mere kid. He would tag along with Mike Wolfe, and the two would collect rocks; Frank and Mike met at Sudlow Intermediate School.
Body Measurements, Height and Weight
Frank’s height and weight have not yet been reported. However, Frank went through a noticeable weight loss in 2013. He has quite a unique appearance. He has tattoos over his body, among which one was made by tattoo artist James Hawk; James Hawk owns a shop called Hawk’s Tattoos.
In 2013, when Frank lost quite some weight, people couldn’t help but question it. He then revealed the cause of the weight loss in a Facebook post on 17th August 2013. He stated that he had Crohn’s diseases and inflammatory bowel disease. He wrote,
“A lot of you have been wondering about my health and my weight loss. I have an illness called Crohn’s, which at times is difficult to deal with.”
He further added that he had been exercising and eating good and getting back to a healthy lifestyle. The antique dealer even carries portable facilities for the illness when he travels.
