LETICIA Cline has made her television debut in a new campaign promoting the Kentucky bluegrass region.
Mike Wolfe’s girlfriend was seen alongside the American Pickers star as the two filmed the commercial promoting Kentucky tourism.
Although it was a change from Mike’s History Channel show, the campaign showed the couple driving around the scenic state, visiting several shops and restaurants along the way.
Leticia, 44, and Mike, 59, cruised around in a red Cadillac as they stopped to learn how to make a country-style breakfast, sample Buffalo Trace whiskey, pet a few horses and take in some of the sights.
The two looked more in love than ever as they danced and held hands while walking through the streets.
Leticia took to her Instagram Stories and feed to promote the exciting new video.
In her IG Story video, the journalist said she couldn’t have been prouder to be included in the project.
She was also thrilled with how everything came together in the commercial – especially since she’s from Kentucky herself.
“The opportunity to be involved in a national campaign to promote my home state is simply surreal,” she said.
She said she and Mike traveled to 16 different locations in just two days to film the project, including places she had never been before.

She explained the experience in more detail by writing their contribution: “Last month Mike and I were asked to do a Kentucky commercial to promote the Bluegrass region and without hesitation we said yes.”
She continued, “It’s no secret how proud I am to be a Kentuckian, and the opportunity to tell a part of one’s story in a statewide campaign is an accomplishment I have only dreamed of.”
The two have explored other career options outside of American Pickers, especially when it was recently announced that he was “ready for retirement” given the show’s lowest ratings.
END OF AN ERA?
The pair’s new advert comes after Mike’s friend exclusively told The US Sun that he wants to leave American Pickers.
They recently revealed: “I don’t know how long the show will last.
“I don’t know how long Mike and Robbie want to do this. I think they would like to retire at some point. It’s been 12 years.”
“It’s a burden on your life. They’ve been doing this for a long time. When they’re around, it’s, “Ah, we’re on the road again.” “I don’t have time for this, I don’t have time for this.”
They added: “It’s a love-hate relationship like any job.”
“Some days you don’t wish you had this job and could do whatever you wanted. Some days you really look forward to your job.”
Mike and Danielle Colby have starred on the hit series since 2010, and his brother Robbie officially became a full-time cast member in 2022, replacing Frank Fritz.
Due to continued low ratings, “American Pickers” may be coming to an end. The August 23 episode only reached 620,000 viewers – the lowest of the season.
Ratings were once in the millions when fan favorite Frank, 59, hosted alongside Mike.
