American Pickers Star Danielle Colby Is Worth More Than You Might Expect

American Pickers' star Danielle Colby stands out on the show thanks to her array of tattoos, pin-up-esque style, and bold personality. That's also what makes her perfectly suited to her alter ego as "The Queen of Rust." However, there's something else about Colby that her co-star and friend, Micke Wolfe, adores about her. 

"You know, Danielle and I've known each other for 25 years, and she's always been this creative force," he told Fox News. "She's one of those persons that if she has an idea and she has a passion for it, she's going to follow through with it."

Wolfe explained that when Colby is "doing something that she loves, it's really her best moments, because she's a very, very passionate person." While this kind of passion has helped some reality TV stars build massive fortunes (Others? Not so much), Colby is doing pretty darn well for herself. Frankly, she may even have more money than you might expect.

Danielle Colby has picked her way to a fortune

Danielle Colby has surely made some decent money over the years by helping her American Pickers' co-stars track down places and people to visit in search of antiques and collectibles to buy and resell at a profit. However, it's likely her reality TV paychecks from the show that have helped her earn a tidy fortune.

Colby has around $1.5 million to her name, according to Celebrity Net Worth. That's a rather impressive amount for a woman who's willing to get down and dirty searching through garbage, dust, and cobwebs in search of interesting finds.

Granted, Colby's estimated net worth is not nearly as much as her co-stars. Frank Fritz is reportedly worth about $4 million and his partner, Mike Wolfe, apparently has about $5 million in his war chest. However, we're sure Colby isn't turning her nose up at her hard-earned and well-deserved fortune.
