Mike Wolfe is worth more than you think

Besides hosting "American Pickers," Mike Wolfe is the creator and executive producer of the show. According to his official website, Mike created the treasure-hunting show based on his childhood hobby, writing, "Alone on a country road, carrying a small camcorder and convinced that vintage treasures and priceless stories were to be found in the barns and attics of America, Mike created the first minutes of 'American Pickers.'" He refers to his show as a "blockbuster" and has since moved onto executive producing other shows such as "Going Cambo" and "Nashville Flipped."

In addition to building his media empire, Mike owns Antique Archaeology, two antique stores that are prominently featured in "American Pickers" and where his co-hosts, Frank Fritz and Danielle Colby, work. Additionally, Mike has published two books about American picking for adults and kids: "American Pickers Guide to Picking" and "Kid Pickers: How to Turn Junk into Treasure." Celebrity Net Worth estimates that Mike has a net worth of $7 million, with most of his money coming from his media productions.

For Mike, though, making money means betting on himself. He told Fast Company in 2015, "History said something to me about four years ago, and I'll never forget it: 'We're not in the Mike Wolfe business, we're in the 'American Pickers' business,'" to which he responded, "I better get in the Mike Wolfe business real fast, and understand what that business is." Clearly, he's accomplished that and more.
