  1. I really enjoyed Farmer Wants a Wife, it’s great to have it back. It was refreshing watching genuine people looking for love and not more Instagram followers. No duck lips and fake bits, okay maybe one or two, but the vast majority were very normal looking people, which was nice to see. Hopefully each farmer picks the right girl for him.
