Farmer Wants A Wife To Premiere On July 28

With Masterchef Australia finishing up in the next couple of weeks, other TV Networks are now unleashing some reality TV arsenal.

Channel Nine are premiering one of their rating winners, Farmer Wants A Wife. Season Five of the show will start on Wednesday 28 July at 8.30pm.

The Farmers are:

Farmer Nathan, 26 – Runs cattle on 1.4 million acres

Farmer Devon, 25 – Cropping, wheat, barley, lupin, rye, oats and peas, on 4500 acres

Farmer Charlie, 25 – Sheep and cattle, on 6000 acres

Farmer Shaun, 31 – Sheep and crops, on 7500 acres

Farmer Becky, 34 – Cattle and sheep, on 1 million acres

Farmer Jamie, 39 – Pearls, in 12000 acres of water

Becky is a single mum who lives 2 and half hours from the nearest supermarket. Nathan is a drover so when he leaves home he can be away for weeks, so that may explain why it is hard for him to hold down a relationship.

In episode one the farmers gather at a country estate to meet their top six choices. Over the coming weeks they will cull the list to three potential partners. The twist this season is that the partners won’t know the location of the farmers until they actually reach their farms.

Every season I think I am not going to like this show, but it sucks me in every time.

Pearls?? No I’m not going to stoop to a pearl necklace comment…argh…there, resisted it. However are sure, Raver, that you measure his aquatic property in acres? And is the guy kinda like Aqua Man? With a homestead at the bottom of the ocean? That’d be cool.

Cant find the speed date of Jamie and Cheryl…the woman who chose not to stay. Might be interesting. Would like to see that to see why she changed her mind, as she should not have started something she had no intention of completing

Diane – maybe she felt there was no chemistry between them and did not want to waste his time.
