Five mar­riages have given Chan­nel 9’s call some real mus­cle

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY TV -

LIKE to pitch­fork your­self a real man? Get dirt un­der your nails as you dig for true love? If you pre­fer green acres to sub­ur­ban Greenacres, then The Farmer Wants a Wife may just be cupid’s track to the bush­man of your dreams.

For its eighth se­ries, Chan­nel 9 is search­ing for sin­gle ladies with ro­mance on their minds to woo one of seven prime Aussie ru­ral hunks.

Con­tes­tants must be aged over 18, gen­uinely look­ing for love and pre­pared to live on a farm for about 12 days of film­ing.

Af­ter pro­duc­ing five mar­riages and four ba­bies in its five-year his­tory, The Farmer Wants a Wife has suc­cess­fully wo­ven love and sus­pense into the clas­sic dat­ing game against the back­drop of the Aus­tralian out­back. Match­ing boys from the bush with sheilas from the city has been the for­mula since the se­ries started in 2007.

Hosted by Natalie Gru­zlewski, the show’s next line-up fea­tures some fel­las who should eas­ily beckon some will­ing maid­ens. They in­clude Ir­ish Paul, 45, from Gnar­aloo, Western Australia. He sleeps un­der the stars – his dream girl is dark and ex­otic. Ac­tion man Tom, 30, from Beeac in Vic­to­ria, is af­ter com­mit­ment and kids – he wants to be a dad. And alors, there’s the French rugby-play­ing farmer Chris. So ladies, trade those stilet­tos for gum­boots and throw your hat in to the ring.

Ap­pli­ca­tions close Mon­day.

soon, Nine, NBN.
