JEU DU VENTILATEUR

But fans aren’t too pleased with the episodes so far, as one viewer wrote on Twitter: “Very dry and boring without Frankscripted, no freestylin’; a very different show. I understand that he isn’t coming back but you should have ended the original show and started a new one moving forward.”

A second commented: “Haven’t watched since 2020 when Frankie got canned. Not going to waste my time on this stuff ever again… I wish they would take this new garbage off the History Channel. It’s a great station.”

Un troisième a dit: “Not the same without Frank.”

FRANK’S FIRING

Franc, 57, last appeared on American Pickers during a March 2020 épisode, as he took time off to recover from back surgery.

The original cast member’s firing was announced in July 2021 despite his desire to return to the History show.

Frank left the show to recover from grueling back surgery that left him with 185 stitches and two rods in his spine.

During his time off the show, Frank lost 65 livres sterling, as he is living a healthier lifestyle and is sober from alcohol.

Frank also told The Sun that he checked into rehab for alcohol abuse in Iowa for 77 jours.

Frank said last year: “I went to rehab and I’ve been sober now for 11 mois.

“I didn’t like drinking anymore. My mom was an alcoholic and she died five years ago and it was alcohol-related. My grandfather was an alcoholic and he died. That didn’t sit well with me.”

Frank continued that he goes to meetingstwice a week” after the stint.

Frank said he would’ve been sober for a year if it weren’t for a relapse.

Il ajouta: “It was maybe for four hours, but it was enough. The next day I went to a meeting and I got right back on track.

“I don’t think I’ll ever have a drink again because I don’t like the feeling anymore and some of the dumb things that I did.”

Frank continued: “I’m feeling really good. Life is good and I’d like to get back into the swing of things. I wish I had done it five years ago, I would have been a different person.

“It was the best thing for me and I wish I had done it sooner or I wouldn’t be in the position that I am right now.”

Frank also revealed his feud with co-star Mike, 58.
