Former Farmer Wants A Wife participant Matthew Eric Goyder has been convicted on possessing and sharing child sex abuse images and videos.
Goyder, who appeared on the show when it screened on Nine in 2016, was arrested last year after chatting to an undercover police officer and sending two videos.
Police later seized a hard drive and laptop containing more than 4000 images and videos of children being abused.
Judge Karen Shepherd said the material overall was of “the utmost depravity and which depicts serious sexual abuse of children”.
In his letter to the court, Goyder said he took full responsibility for his actions and that he was “totally appalled and deeply ashamed” for what he had done.
The court heard Goyder also had mental health issues and had suffered a hypoxic brain injury in 2019.
Judge Shepherd noted Goyder had taken steps to rehabilitate himself and had “already been punished to a point” by the media attention on the case.
He was sentenced to two years in prison and must serve at least half the term before he can be eligible for parole.
