Farmer Wants A Wife couples: Where are they now

It was the feel-good show that helped isolated Aussie farmers find a wife.

Hosted by Natalie Gruzlewski, the show ran on and off for nine seasons between 2007 and 2016 and boasts some of the best success stories known to local reality TV.

Although it’s been a hot minute between series, the popular dating show is set to return to TV screens, thanks to Channel Seven rebooting the old favourite in 2020.

So where exactly did all the old farmers and city girls end up?

Well, we have good news – the show has enjoyed a much better strike rate than rival Married At First Sight.
