On Sunday, Mike shared a photo standing next to the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition star.

Both men smiled, as they wrapped their arms around each other, while standing behind an audience of people.

In a subsequent photo, Mike’s girlfriend, Leticia Cline, joined the two, standing in the middle.

Mike revealed in the caption: “Breaking news! My brother from another mother, Ty Pennington, and I finally connected after all of these years.

“He’s the Starsky to my Hutch. Preservation warriors on a mission to save small town America. Stay tuned for some bad a**ery.”

Mike, 59, even gave Ty, also 59, a special shoutout with the hashtag “Move that bus.”

While it wasn’t clear what the two could be cooking up, fans in the comments section couldn’t wait.

“Oh Yay! I’ll watch anything you two collaborate on,” one person said.

“Two of my favorite worlds collide,” another remarked. “Love you both!”

While a third added: “Can’t wait to see what you guys do.”

Ty himself even responded to Mike, gushing: “This may be the ultimate Road Trip!!! Whooop!!”

Ty shared his own snap with Mike, and added a tease as well.

“Picking out some big ideas with this legend,” Ty shared.

And again, mixed among the supporting comments, Mike responded himself.

“Epic conversation buddy. Lots of cool stuff happening. We’re both blessed.”


Mike has been busy teasing other projects, especially in light of the falling ratings for his flagship show, American Pickers.

Near the end of December 2023, the antique expert returned to the show with sibling co-hosts Mike, Robbie Wolfe, 62, and co-star Jersey Jon, 60, for the Season 25 premiere.

The ratings dipped to a nearly all-time low, putting the show’s future in question.

The U.S. Sun exclusively revealed the ratings for the premiere episode, Classic Car Cemetery, reached about 723,000 viewers.

Viewership plummeted even further during part two of the premiere, Hidden Cash Stash, which had only 676,000 people tuning in.

It was the lowest premiere rating the once-beloved show has had in some time.

The Season 24 premiere kicked off with better numbers, with about 943,000 fans watching on January 4, 2023. 

Fans have had mixed reviews about the program since Mike’s original co-host, Frank Fritz, 60, was fired in 2021 and replaced by Robbie.

Viewers have called for Mike’s brother to get fired and complained about him online.

As for Frank, he suffered a stroke in July 2022 and is under conservatorship and guardianship.
