Who is Jodi Faeth?

Born in 1972 on an unspecified date in an unknown place in the USA, Jodi Faeth has been deliberately evasive concerning her background – parents, formative years, education, working life – but is a Caucasian female definitely best known to the world for being the wife of the writer, producer, actor, treasure hunter and collector Mike Wolfe, the creator and star of History channel’s reality TV series entitled “American Pickers.” It is unknown what personal successes Jodi has had in her career, since her calling is still a mystery.

Their Love Story

Jodi and Mike met back in 1994, and started their relationship in the same year, which they continued for 18 years before actually marrying on the 8th of September 2012, after which they went for a honeymoon on Hawaii. Upon their return in October, Jodi was baptized. Together, they have a daughter named Charlie Faeth Wolfe, who is now six years old, though her exact birthdate is unknown. Their place of residence is in Le Claire, Iowa.

Their Child Had Was Born with a Defect

Charlie was unfortunately born with a cleft lip, but Jodi and Mike decided to tackle this problem early on. As a result, Charlie underwent facial reconstructive surgery twice, during which time the parents stated that they were up all night at the hospital. Their child now has a normal face thanks to their effort and support.

Her Diagnosis

In late 2013, Jodi was unfortunately diagnosed with the second stage of a disease named Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, or NHL for short. This is a cancerous disease that begins in the white blood cells, and when untreated can ultimately lead to death. Thanks to the early detection of the disease, Jodi was able to successfully undergo treatment, and is now healthy.

Her Husband

Born under the sign of Gemini on the 11th of June 1964 in Joliet, Illinois USA, Mike Wolfe is a 54-year-old Caucasian actor, writer, producer, treasure hunter and collector. He was raised in his birthplace by his single mother named Rita Wolfe, whose profession is unknown, the second eldest of three siblings, although their names and ages are unknown. In order to help his family, he started salvaging saleable trinkets and other sundry items at the age of six. His earliest reward for this hobby came in the form of $5, which he earned for re-selling a damaged bike he had salvaged. While growing up, he was also a bicycle racing enthusiast, and owned two bike shops at a certain point in his life. However, he later decided to fully devote himself to picking, and so he sold the shops and started his own treasure store, named “Antique Archaeology.” In 2010, he gathered enough funds to start his own show, which he pitched to various TV channels. History channel accepted this offer, and thus “American Pickers” began in January of the said year. Mike is at this point a reality TV star, and his wife has also featured in a few episodes, which raised the audience’s interest in her identity.

The Show’s Success

The first episode of “American Pickers” amassed 3.1 million viewers, which made it the History Channel’s highest-rated debut show since 2007. The first season of the show raked in 5.4 million viewers every week of its duration, which made it History Channel’s highest rated new non-fiction program of 2010 among adults aged 25-54.

She Had an Affair

Before she met Mike, Jodi spent a certain amount of time with another man, whom she eventually got pregnant with, and gave birth to her first son named Kyle at the age of 24, current whereabouts unknown. Hence, she expressed concern prior to giving birth to Charlie, because, as she said, there’s a big difference between giving birth at 24 and 41 years of age. Regardless, her pregnancy went well.

What is Jodi Faeth’s Net Worth?

Have you ever wondered how rich Jodi Faeth is, as of mid-2018? According to various authoritative sources, Jodi’s personal accumulated wealth is unknown, and is only expressed in conjunction with husband Mike Wolfe’s net worth, estimated at over $4 million, earning around $500,000 per season of “American Pickers.” However, the couple are also into the restoration business, and have at least a steady income from those endeavors too. Mike has made his fortune primarily as an actor and producer, and as his career continues to develop, the said amount can be expected to increase.

Body Measurements

Concerning Jodi’s physical attributes, her vital statistics, height and current weight are undisclosed. Her body shape is generally described as fit, while her hair color is dark brown and her eyes are light brown.

Social Media Presence

Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active celebrities to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the projects they’re working on, and thus their own net worth. However, it doesn’t look like Jodi is an active subscriber to this celebrity trend, as her presence is nowhere to be found on any of the popular social media networks including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

#Marks / Signs
1High energy
2Loud and frequent laugh
3His use of "picker slang"


1[on seeing a motorcycle for the first time] I was 13 when I saw my first motorcycle. I was walking down the sidewalk when this guy who was like the high school champion stud-he was the team quarterback, got all the chicks, everything-did this incredible burnout on his Honda 900. I can remember the day so clearly, how warm it was, and him looking at me as I walked by. I thought, "Oh, man. That is the coolest thing in the world." That's what started me on my journey of wanting a motorcycle.
2[on his first pick] I was walking to school one day and saw all these bikes in the garbage. I was just amazed because I didn't have one and I found it incredible that anyone was throwing them out. So I gathered up as many as I could and put them all in our garage. They were mostly banana-seat bikes from the '60s, maybe one was a Schwinn. There was a girl's balloon-tire bike, too. That was the first bike I learned to ride because there was no bar in the middle-I was little, so I would ride it almost right above the cranks. ... Then I sold one. It didn't take much to get it going. I put air in the tires and cleaned it all up and stuff, and then I sold it to an older kid down the street. I think I was six then. I was always fascinated with bikes because when I was young I was very small and slow, but I could go fast on a bike.
3[on racing bikes competitively] I started racing pretty heavy, from like '89 until '98. I did road racing and criteriums. I was a Cat 4 rider, and then I moved up to a Cat 3 for a little while, and then I kind of got out of it. When you run a bike shop, you never really get out of it, though, because you're around it so much. ... I liked the Italian stuff. I rode Bottecchias. My first really high-end bike was a Viner and that was my first handmade frame, and I always rode Campagnolo. Even when I was in high school, I had a Super Record Campy bike, which was a very expensive bike back then. I had an Atala, which is another Italian bike. I raced that quite a bit, did really well on that one. When the balloon-tire craze was hot, I was buying Phantoms and Panthers, anything with a horn tank. I love the Schwinn stuff. But I was a purist. I grew up watching these pros and they were all riding handmade Italian Colnagos and Medicis and all that stuff. And everything was Campagnolo, and it was all exotic and amazing and beautiful. I wanted that, so when I started racing and had my own shop, those were the kind of bikes I rode.
4[on his first bike] It was a Kawasaki 100, a little Enduro. It was sitting in a friend's garage, kind of beat-up and rundown. He had a couple older brothers who had moved on and left the bike. I traded him my stereo speakers for it. I never took it home, though, because my mother would have absolutely killed me if she knew I owned a motorcycle, so I kept it in different friends' garages. Motorcycles keep me on the road. All the other stuff is gravy.
5[on working hard and his current success] I'm a businessman, so I'm gonna make hay while the sun's shining. I've been self-employed for 23 years. That's an accomplishment in itself. You gotta be out there hustling. If you're not, you're not gonna make it. ... Everything has an expiration date. I'm a realist. Do I think I'm Pickin' Jesus? No. That's ridiculous.


1Mike is the oldest of three children; he has a brother Robbie, and a sister, Beth. Robbie often appears on "American Pickers" with his children.
2His first motorcycle was a Kawasaki 100. He upgraded to a Honda Elsinore 250. A Can-Am 250 came next.
3Mike's motorcycle collection includes a 1948 Indian, and a 1913 twin with pedal cranks, made the first year the Indian had a rear suspension.
4Mike and wife Jodi Faeth welcomed daughter Charlie Faeth Wolfe on January 30, 2012.
5Mike married Jodi Faeth on September 8, 2012, in an "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?"- themed ceremony in Leiper's Fork, Tennessee.
6Mike's home in Le Claire, Iowa, is in a former grocery and boardinghouse built in 1860 that looks over the Mississippi River that he purchased for $175,000 in 2004. The ground floor holds two home decor stores and includes a two-car garage and courtyard.
7After the $8.7 million effort to restore the historic Franklin Theatre in Franklin, Tennessee, was completed a few years ago, Mike was recruited to provide vintage 1940s fixtures for the green room.
8Mike and "American Pickers" co-star Frank Fritz met in junior high school.
9In his early 20s, Mike was a competitive bicycle racer (from '89 until '98, he was Cat 4 and Cat 3). He also owned two different bike stores in Iowa during the 1990s: The Village Bike Shop in East Davenport and a store in Eldridge, Iowa, that he financed from the money he made by selling a 1934 Harley Davidson motorcycle to a collector in Bangkok, Thailand.
10Mike launched a kids' initiative in 2012 called Kid Pickers.
11Mike tried to sell the idea for a reality show about pickers for five years before The History Channel gave him the green light.
12MIke's first TV show concept, "American Pickers," debuted on The History Channel on January 18, 2010, drawing 3.1 million viewers. It was TV's highest rated new non-fiction program among adults 25-54 of that year. In its fourth season, it averaged 4.7 million viewers a week.
13Mike owns and operates two locations of Antique Archaeology, in Le Claire, Iowa, and Nashville, Tennessee, where he sells treasures from the road and official "American Picker" merchandise.
14Mike began picking at the age of six, pulling an old bicycle out of his neighbor's trash. He cleaned it up and sold it to another kid for $5 - his first profitable flip.
