Farmer Wants A Wife – One Of Shaun’s Girls Walks

TV Week say that one of Shaun girl’s that he selected to go to his farm left. They did not give away the name of the girl but she said there was not chemistry there.

The article states:

“Something had changed, ” the lady in question admits. “Thre were about four weeks between the speed date and when we went to the farm, and it felt like he’d backed off – he just didn’t seem as relaxed or as open. It was awkward from the very beginning.”

And it seem the stress of having a TV crew and three relative strangers on his farm didn’t help matters either.

“Shaun had a bit of a problem with being told what to do and how to do it[by the crew],” the mystery girl explains. “He got a little bit [cranky] at times, which is understandable – it’s his property adn they were changing their minds every five minutes. He was getting annoyed.”

Add an apparent lack of chemistry to the mix.

“I didn’t get any vibe from him whatsoever,” she continues. “I was like ‘I’m wasting my time here’. You can tell when someone is attracted to you, and I just wasn’t getting anything from him – he was so shut off. After two days, I [thought], ‘Oh, well, I don’t need to be here.'”

While we’ll see the dropout awkwardly telling Shaun she’s leaving on screen, she’d actually already broken the news to him behind closed door.

“I told him privately,” she confirms. ” I said to him, ‘Shaun, I just don’t fell like I’m getting anything from you and I’m not feeling anything, so I don’t want to waste everyone’s time being here.’

“He was like,’Oh, OK, that’s fine, I’m alright with that,’ But you could tell in his face that he didn’t see it coming.”

The hunky bachelor admits that he felt ” a little bit surprised’, adding ,” I thought we were getting on really well. I thought that she was enjoying herself. I’m not really sure why she changed her mind.”

Shaun maintains there was “definitely a connection” between them both and laughs upon hearing that the main reason for her leavign was an apparent lack of interest fro him.

“Maybe that’s my fault, I’m not really sure. I was trying to let her know [that I was interested], but obviously I still had to be fair to the other two remaining girls.”

But when the couple had to play out the “I’m leaving” scene for the cameras, the departing girl was shocked by the shift in Shaun’s response.

“He said that he didn’t fell anything either and that we were just friends – like he was trying to make himself sound better or tougher. I [thought], ‘Whoa! Where did that come from?! OK, if you want to play it that way, then fine.'”

And the fleeing female says she would “definitely” have stayed around if she’d  known Shaun was interested.

“I chose him because I was attracted to him. I thought he spoke really well and that he seemed like a really nice guy who you could spend the rest of your life with. I really like him. I just didn’t get it.”

But although she’s recently started seeing someone new, the headstrong girl and Shaun are still in contact, with both insisting there are no hard feelings. And for the farmer, there was also a silver lining to his dream girl’s exit.

“It was a little bit of a relief,” he admits. “I was dreading telling one of the girls to go home the next week, and this meant that I didn’t have to.”

More fuel for my “Shaun is emotionally damaged” theory! Poor guy sounds like he shouldn’t really be on the show.

Do you think so? I think it is more the fault of the silly girl. She admitted everything was up in the air in the first few days getting used to the camera crews but she couldn’t wait and work out if she liked shaun and he liked her. She expected instant, constant attention. Not a good characteristic of anyone in a relationship in my opinion. Last year Scott chose the “neglected one” in the end. Stick at it and you may win out. Silly girl.

Don’t know what to believe. The show certainly didn’t show her being neglected by Shaun! Maybe she just didn’t like him.

Her leaving had nothing to do with the fact that he has already got a girlfriend in the wings maybe? And that it got slipped during the ‘friends and family meeting’?

This years series is great, looking forward to seeing Becky getting settled with a new man. Check out Farmer Wants a wife for gossip and also the Dating Site for Farmers who did not make it onto the series Farm Dating

I agree with CAthy – Michelle gave him a look when he showed up at the friends and family meeting like he was some kind of dog – so I think she found some things out there that changed her mind entirely….
