The farmer takes a wife

Filed under: TV — posted by Amanda @ 4:32 pm

Today’s New York Times includes a bit of a bodice-ripper about the CW’s new reality show, Farmer Wants a Wife (April 30, 9 PM EST), a sort of “The Bachelor” meets “Green Acres” featuring real-life Missouri farmer/bachelor Matt Neustadt, 30.

“When meeting women, it’s very hard to sell the fact that I am [a farmer],” Neustadt told the Times, explaining that they’re immediately suspicious of what apparently comes across as just some kind of aw-shucks line. “A lot of times they seem to think that I am a player.”

Some of this confusion may also arise from Neustadt’s physique, which the Times describes in blush-worthy detail, from his “surfer” tan to his “rippling washboard abs” to his entering the show “shirtless, his pectoral muscles rippling in the sunlight.” (Sheesh! Get a hayloft!)

But Neustadt hopes that his good looks won’t stand in the way of a true connection. And the ten women vying to be Mrs. Farmer (who “include several aspiring actors or entertainers, members of professions that might be hard to nurture in Portage Des Sioux”) say that all they’re looking for is love, too. In fact, most claim they’re more interested in finding a soul mate than being on TV. And clearly they’re willing to look outside their comfort zone. After all, according to the show’s producer, city women are simply tired of the urban singles scene.

But hey, Neustadt’s peers might say, at least urban singles have a scene.

So, reality TV junkies: you gonna watch this one? Think the down-home (versus, say, Orange County) factor will make it different from the rest?


  1. ummm…yeah. 1st thing thath comes to mind: “the farmer in the dell, farmer in the dell, hi ho the dairo the farmer in the dell.” :)

    2nd thing: is this like the bachelor where they have a bunch of girls gaggling for a hot guys affections and they never exactly marry? must have been why they stopped the bacheloreette b/c the girls got married to the guy. where is the fun in that? must tease audience and then have the guy NOT marry the girl. no drama. no ratings! pfffft!

    i prefer things that are funny! the only reality tv i really watch is probably beauty and the geek since that is a little more intersting. repetiive but people end up getting together and they find out a little more about each youther. and they are young…..

    the show might be amusing in any case but i think im going to have to pass for better options.

  5. Well, I just happened on this show, and started watching it out of complete boredom. But after just about a half an hour I was pretty much hooked. It’s super funny and most of the girls really do seem genuine and the two that were super bad, were the first booted. It just showed that he’s smart and adorable. It kind of reminds me of that reality show “Outback Jack”, which I also loved and watched the entire season. I’ve watched a couple seasons of the “Bachelor”, but find it too dramatic and the women are just so catty. I did watch the “Bachelorette” though, which was much better. Go Tristan & Ryan!

  6. I always watched SuperNanny in this time slot, but this show got my attention during the commercials and now I watch it every week. I think it’s super funny and very interesting how the city girls are the dumb ones–like wearing high heels to drive a tractor. Come on! You know they’re not appropriate on a farm! I hope they’re sincere and respect the farmer. He’s a very nice guy.

  7. I cant believe that people actually believe that this guy is a real farmer. We never see him doing any of the traditional farm chores. He always has someone else showing the girls how to do things. No way did a single young guy decorate that so called farm house with all those beautiful things. He is a pretty boy not a farmer. I come from a town that is still 90% supported by agriculture and I have not seen any farmers that look or act like that. The ones from my home town are not hard up for a date. especially with silly nilly city girls in high heels.

  10. His hairstyle and legnth of hair on video of interview and at the time he got passport is the same. So is his dress, same shirt, same necktie. I would guess the video was made on the same day.

  11. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my
    iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and
    she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  16. Christmas is getting neraer and neraer, while people are busy preparing gifts for this big day, or some might have already had everything ready, I am still confused with what kind of gift I am going to buy. But there is one thing can be sure, small accessories like iPhone case, coin purse and classic bags like Celine Luggage Tote and Trapeze Bag should be considered on gift list. People like sending small yet practical gifts like the above small accessories that I mentioned. When preparing for Christmas gift, we should take practicality and actual value of the gift into consideration. So today I am writing to share these little items with you in order to give some advices to the people who haven’t had any idea yet.

    matter, it may not be a taboo matter but typically people do not speak
    about these topics. To the next! Cheers!!

  40. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  41. I was just looking for this info for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative sites in top of the list. Generally the top sites are full of garbage.
