Together with Mike Wolfe, they run the American Pickers which is a reality-based Television series in History channel. The show premiered on 18th January 2010.

But the rumor was baseless and false. As Mike is already married to his wife Jodi Faeth, they have been together since 2012 and is blessed with a daughter named Charlie. Despite being not gay, the business partners spend almost a whole year together and go on a journey to find antiques. The friends when queried about the competition that the duo share while selling their finds, the pickers proudly said that the selectors didn't necessarily compete for profits.
However, there is no precise information about his romantical bond with Jodi, and it is mysterious whether the couple is still together or have parted their ways. But, Frank's social media posts illustrate his relationship with another woman, Diane.
