Farmer Wants a Wife 2011 - What to Expect

Last year's Farmer Wants A Wife finale that aired on the 15th of September 2010, garnered a whopping total of 1.45 million viewers based on OzTAM rankings. This record only proves that The Farmer Wants A Wife Australian edition has got such a strong foothold in the country, making Channel Nine the most popular local TV network especially for the younger audience. Now, brace yourselves for Australia's most favourite reality TV show is just about to come back for its sixth season, still on Nine Network!

Last year, Fremantle Media, the developer of Farmer Wants A Wife, began its search for the show's sixth season, for farmers 25 to 60 years old who are looking for the love of their lives. Interested contestants should of course be working as farmers and can either be male or female. Last year's applications for the sixth season of the show ended on the 24th of September, and the final contestants are now ready to be unveiled!

Only six of the hundreds to thousands of applicants were chosen as the final farmers for the show. After the applications were submitted, the profiles of the aspiring contestants were displayed on the website through a series of events, web chat sessions, speed dating, city trips and country stays. Eventually, these were narrowed to just six final farmers who are now officially one step closer to finding their own soul mates.

To those of you who are avid viewers of the said show and can no longer wait for its debut episode for the year, here is a tentative list of the 6 farmers who will be staring the 2011 Farmer Wants a Wife Australia.

2. Farmer Ben of Clare, South Australia, aged 33. He sees himself as "outgoing, open minded, generous and easy to talk to."
