Farmer Wants a Wife is in full swing, but the road to true love has been a rocky one thus far. Now, guest host Samantha Armytage is here to lend a hand, bringing in 10 new potential loves for our farmers. Could one of these latecomers be the game-changing love connection our farmers are searching for?
This season, we’re following Farmer Ben, 27, from Wingham, NSW, Farmer Harry, 24, from Kyabram, VIC, Farmer Will, 26, from Berriwillock, VIC, Farmer Benjamin, 33, from Guyra, NSW, and Farmer Paige — the show’s first female farmer — who’s 28 and from Cassilis, NSW.
One of Sam’s picks for Farmer Benjamin is Laura, a 34-year-old medical receptionist from NSW.
A longtime fan of Farmer Wants a Wife, Laura said that she’d never felt compelled to apply herself… until this year.
“For some reason, this year when I saw the callout for the applicants, something sparked my interest,” she said in a press statement. “I never thought of going on a TV show, but I am in the midst of a ‘why not’ phase of my life and am looking to try something different.”
Laura applied to for Farmer Benjamin because she “thoroughly enjoyed reading his bio”.
“A French-electro-DJing, sheep-wrangling, adventuring, amusing and obviously thoughtful farmer seems like an interesting mix,” she said, adding: “Not to mention I saw him on the morning telly earlier this year after he had done the love heart for his aunt and I just loved that.”
When it comes to love and relationships, Laura said that while she wants to find real love, it’s “not something [she has] prioritised finding over the last few years”.
“I don’t like online dating and have found it hard meeting people in the middle of a pandemic,” she explained. “So, I have been more focused on getting through and setting up my home and spending time with family and friends. But now it’s time for something new.”
Will Farmer Benjamin be the something new in Laura’s life? Only time will tell. Until then…
Farmer Wants a Wife airs at 7.00pm on Sundays, and 7.30pm on Mondays and Tuesdays, only on 7 and 7 Plus.
