Sam McClymont will host Farmer Wants a Wife

Sam McClymont has been announced as the new host of The Farmer Wants a Wife.

The chart topping country singer from The McClymonts takes over the role from Natalie Gruzlewski.

In her first television presenting role, Sam will guide six lovelorn farmers on their quest to find a wife: Lachlan from south of Sydney, Adam from Victoria, Julz and Jedd from South Australia, Matt from outback Western Australian, and Lance from Far North Queensland.

Sam McClymont said: “I am thrilled to be joining Farmer Wants a Wife. I’ve been a fan since it began. The thing that has struck a chord with me, and I think the TV audience, is that the men and women going on this show are genuinely looking for real love. “Being newly married, I look forward to helping these farmers and ladies find that special someone, and hopefully we can add some more marriages and babies to the show’s amazing success rate.”

Nine’s new production executive, Stuart Clark, said: “We are thrilled to have Sam on board helping our six farmers on their quest for true love. She’s a country girl, a great musical talent, and the perfect host to guide our famers through the trials and tribulations of finding love on the land.”

Production on the new season begins next week and will air on Nine later this year.
