Farmer Wants a Wife
Real love is back! Rounding up true romance, Farmer Wants a Wife brings big heart to the heartland in an all-new unscripted dating show hosted by Jennifer Nettles, which follows four hard-working farmers – Ryan Black, Allen Foster, Hunter Grayson and Landon Heaton – in search of real, lasting love. Each farmer hosts a group of single women who leave behind the comfort and convenience of city life for the charms and challenges of country living, as they embark on an adventure that could change the course of their lives forever.
Quick Thoughts: Love Island had a farmer this year. Most of the ladies thought of him as a friend and he had such a sad face all the time until they brought in a nice Aussie girl for him. Maybe they’ll have more luck since it’s only farmers and they won’t have competition from a professional football player and that one guy who owned the factory that made vibrators.
