THE FARMER WANTS A WIFE Chan­nel 9, tonight, 8pm

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

★★★★ Aus­tralia’s, and pos­si­bly the world’s, most suc­cess­ful dat­ing show is back and it’s had a ma­jor over­haul. There are mur­murs the re­struc­ture may not go down well with the show’s loyal fol­low­ers and only time will tell if pro­duc­ers made the right de­ci­sion to hit the re­fresh but­ton. The new for­mat prom­ises more com­pe­ti­tion and more op­por­tu­nity for love. The big change is that the show be­gins with more than 200 speed dates as farm­ers Matt, Tom, Paul, Nikko, Sam and Todd date not just their favourites, but ev­ery girl who has come search­ing for love. A post-speed dat­ing party fol­lows, where the girls work fever­ishly to make an im­pres­sion. One, Jodi, chooses the oc­ca­sion to show­case her pole-danc­ing skills. By the end of the sea­son opener, the farm­ers choose three girls each to take back to their farm. In­ter­est­ingly, if more than one farmer chooses the same girl, the power shifts and the de­ci­sion is left in the girl’s hands. This doesn’t sit par­tic­u­larly well with farmer Sam, who won­ders whether a bat­tle over a par­tic­u­lar girl will be set­tled the oldfashioned way. Here’s hop­ing. DD
