American Pickers has some of the highest ratings on the History Channel, and has been on the air for nearly 10 years. This Iowa girl seems to have done it all, but who is she really? And how did she get to have such a cool job? American Pickers is a show which has practically taken over the airwaves. It follows a duo of guys named Mike and Frank who travel around the country looking at old junkyards for interesting and cool historical items. But the person behind all of the sales, the one who finds them and sets them up, and the real driving force behind the show is definitely Danielle Colby.

The untold truth of Danielle Colby
History's 'American Pickers' star Danielle Colby is hunting treasure by day, but by night she moonlights as a risque burlesque dancer. As her alter ego, Colby bumps and grinds on stage wearing bejeweled costumes, ending her titillating dance by stripping down to her pasties and not much else. It was new and taboo.
Danielle Colby born December 3, is an American reality television personality  who appears on the History reality television show American Pickers. In May , she told WQAD-TV that "fame and notoriety are not easy for him to deal with at all, so the relationship ended up not working out". Colby owned and participated in a female roller derby team, the Big Mouth Mickies, for three years until injuries forced her to give it up. While living with her family in Chicago , she attended a burlesque performance starring comedian Margaret Cho and dancer Satan's Angel. This prompted in her a desire to become a burlesque dancer; and, after she moved back with her family to the Quad Cities area of Iowa,  she created the professional burlesque troupe Burlesque Le Moustache , with nine performers, including Colby herself under the stage name Dannie Diesel,  touring eastern Iowa and western Illinois.
