Farmer Wants A Wife

About a month ago, Jenn was tearing it up in Neiman’s with her personal shopper Holly. The two got to chatting about Holly’s upcoming trip to L.A. — for the final auditions of a new reality show called Farmer Wants A Wife.

Though I’ve never met Holly, I can only surmise from Jenn’s description that she’s a 25-year-old blond city girl.

Jenn agreed that if I had applied, there’s not way I would’ve been cast. They’d never go for a ringer.  I mean, after milking cows for 20 years, throwing bales of hay daily, and generally being covered in pig doo more than not, I just wouldn’t make for good TV.

(Mom and dad just rolled their eyes.)

Seriously, why wouldn’t those girls just go about it the traditional way —

So tonight I Googled the show to see what’s happening with it. Apparently it’s supposed to air sometime in the 2007-2008 season, and it’s been a hit in a few other countries already. Here’s an article about casting for the star farmer in Nebraska.

Then I came across photos of the fine specimens in the Australian version. I vote for Peter. But then again, we all know about my habit of dating apostles.

    I don’t know…I kind of like Brad and Trent, myself. I like them a little rough around the edges. Ha, ha!

    I applied for the aussie version and chose Trent from Coonalpyn, Im from NSW myself but cant stand the city life.
    I was chosen for the first part and told to stay tuned but didnt make the second cut.
    Im not sure who didnt like me, Trent or Channel 9?
    He sure is my type though, hes very rugged and sexy.
    Well I cant wait to see the show in the next few months, I only hope the girls chosen will actually date them in the end and not want 5 minutes of fame…
    I also hope they dont get any bimbo’s who scream when they see a lizard.
