Just in case you were thinking that we’ve run out of ideas for new reality dating competitions, Fox gives us a brand new one with Farmer Wants a Wife. It’s being billed as the “world’s biggest dating show” as it’s aired in 32 countries, and it’s also considered to be the show that would happen if Yellowstone and The Bachelor had a baby. 

Curious? Yeah, so are we. 

The concept is simple—four farmers are looking for wives. Their potential future wives come from a pool of women whose varying degrees of farm experience range from some to none at all. 

What’s more, is that the show is wildly successful across the globe. In a Fox press release, the show’s successes are highlighted by the numbers alone: “The Fremantle-owned format has aired in 32 countries and resulted in 180 marriages and 410 children.” That’s one heck of a track record!

Here's how it works: 32 women were matched online with the four gentlemen farmers, and upon arriving on the farm they were divided into groups of 8. From there, relationships started to build. Will the farmers find love? Based on the odds, it's a good bet that they will.

Farmer Wants a Wife premise

Here's the official plot of Farmer Wants a Wife from Fox: 

"Four farmers from across the country embark on an adventure of a lifetime in the hopes of finding their future spouse. Women will leave behind the dating apps and pursuit of love in 'the big city' in favor of classic American courtship. The farmers will take their group of daters to their farm and show them what it is really like to live as ranchers do—from tending to the homestead to feeding cattle and baling hay. For the daters, the realities of this lifestyle may beg the question: how much of your life are you willing to change for love?"
