With 99 marriages and 225 beautiful farmer babies worldwide, Farmer Wants A Wife is the most successful dating show on the planet.
For Farmer Harry Robertson, a 29-year-old grape and cotton farmer from Goolgowi, New South Wales, he’s hoping to become the next success story in the franchise.
While the show is largely known for its wholesome content, Harry has already run into a cheating scandal — after one of his ladies, Karlana Alexander was said to be keen on a producer instead. While not actually the case (it had turned into a bizarre rumour by the time it had reached him) Harry was forced to confront her during the country ball.
Alexander promptly packed her things and left the farm, with a Farmer Harry reeling.
But it was the way that he handled the situation — calmly, no bull and with tact, that had the fans of the show falling for him.
We’ve seen him on the screen, but there’s even more to the farmer Australia has fallen in love with.
When he’s not working on the farm, Harry likes to fish and travel, listening to music by John Mellencamp and Luke Bryan.
If you didn’t think he could get any more country, his favourite film is The Man from Snowy River because he loves “to see the underdog succeed in the end”.
“I also love the way they wrangle those cattle!”
There’s no question that Harry is on the show looking for someone to spend his life with. He’s winning lady needs to be “easy-going, loves a laugh and is not afraid to have a go at new things.”
Independence is important to him, she not only “needs to be able to hold her own”, but will support him as well.
Trust his “without a doubt”, his biggest deal-breaker. No trust equals no relationship.
Farmer Harry knows that a relationship is not all one-sided, and says that he is “very generous and loving”.
“I always put my partner before anything else and try to make them laugh as many times a day as possible.”
In terms of qualities, Harry considers himself a realistic person who will “always try to find a positive in any situation.”
He also says he has a lot of love to give and some humour too.
The wool farmer also prides himself on loyalty, trust and being a great friend and a bonus for his ladies looking for a family — he would love to have kids.
“But I don’t want to rush the fun part of trying first!”
Farmer Wants a Wife continues on Channel 7, 7.30 pm on Sunday and Monday.
