Eight seasons, a couple of marriages, even a baby – Farmer Wants A Wife is back with six new farmers and a whole new way for them to pick the dates they want to take back to their properties… they have speed dates with every single one of the 36 of them. Keeping them all in the one house for the speed dating process adds an extra layer of competitiveness and, well, tragedy when you see some of the behaviour on display. Stay classy, ladies. From the press release:
The Farmer Wants a Wife, Australia’s most successful reality dating show is back, with more competition and more chances for love on every level, premiering Wednesday, August 15 at 8pm on Channel Nine.
It begins with over 200 speed dates as Farmers Matt, Tom, Paul, Nikko, Sam and Todd not only date their favourites, but every girl who comes looking for love. The fun rolls on into the night and the girls grab one last chance to fight for their man – leading to snatched moments in the corner, bikini clad dating and one girl’s attempt to showcase her pole dancing skills.
At the end of the night, the farmers will choose three girls each to take back to their farm. In the event that more than one farmer chooses the same girl, the power shifts and the decision is left in the girls hands.
For the lucky three who are chosen, they will have to go above and beyond to get their dream farmer-husband to fall for them. The girls are immediately met with a challenge from each farmer – to win a one on one date leaving the others to fight for his attention.
With the surprise arrival of a fourth girl hand-picked by a family member, colourful farmer style makeovers and the opportunity to impress farmer parents, this year the chances are better than ever for farmers to find the one they really want.
In the end it’s not just about a farmer finding love, but which girl wants it the most…
