Tonight marked the start of a fresh season of love on Farmer Wants A Wife on Channel 7 and 7plus, with host Natalie Gruzlewski playing cupid to five new farmers, plucked from paddocks around the country, including incredible female farmer Paige.
With first date nerves in overdrive, Farmer Will (26, Berriwillock, Victoria), Farmer Benjamin (33, Guyra, NSW), Farmer Harry (23, Kyabram, Victoria), Farmer Ben (27, Wingham, NSW) and Farmer Paige (27, Cassilis, NSW) gathered in the picturesque Hunter Valley to meet the person who could be “the one”.
From thousands of eligible singles who saw their profiles online, Farmers Ben, Harry and Will met their favourites in a round of speed-dating.
“I don’t know what’s been going on in Brisbane but you can’t let someone like that be single running around, that’s sheer madness”, Farmer Ben said after meeting 31-year-old hospital administrator, Leish.
Farmer Will was smitten with Madi, a 25-year-old legal assistant. “I’m smiling a bit more than I was before. Absolutely she’s my type.”
It was love at first sight for Farmer Harry when he met 22-year-old psychology student, Tess. “When I saw Tess, my heart did skip a beat. That smile, I was just instantly attracted to her.”
After much awkward laughter and stolen glances, the three farmers invited five ladies back to their beloved farms.
Farmer Ben: Leish, Lisa, Lauren, Maddison, Renee
Farmer Harry: Rommi, Tess, Gabrielle, Elise, Isabella
Farmer Will: Madi, Alicia Jess, Keely, Sahara
