Country Boy loves Farmer Want A Wife . I joke that it is because he wishes he had held out a bit longer so he could have had a whole lot of hotties after him AND become a reality tv ‘star’, but I know the real reason he loves it because it is just so hilarious!
The girls clearly have no idea about what they are getting themselves in to. The clothing they wear says it all: sandals, short shorts, and dangly jewellery are just not at all practical on a day to day basis around a farm. Then they also seem keener to ‘win’ the competition, rather than really live on a farm with a farmer for the rest of their life.
We giggle at the funny things they say and do. For some of them, their entire understanding of farm life appears to have come from children’s books.
Many of the farmers aren’t much better. They wonder why they haven’t met someone yet, but seem to be actually looking for a combination of domestic goddess, mother, farm hand, and sex kitten all rolled into one.
The reality is that farms are businesses, and take a lot of hard work. Sure there is time for playing etc, but farms are time consuming, money consuming things!
Farmers wives need to be able to cope with isolation. They need to understand that there are times in the farming life when the farmer will work 12 hour days, 7 days per week. They need to be able to jump in and do things around the farm. They need to be able to deal with some unpleasant realities. I wonder how things would work out once the initial romance fades and some of the realities of farm life hit.
Let’s face it, this show is about ratings rather than setting people up with the love of their life. It is definitely entertaining, but it is anything but reality!
