    Re: Farmer Wants a Wife

    I watched for the first time tonight, I wasn't real impressed with the show. I have to kind of agree with the gal that got kicked off, it seems as though he wants someone who can work. I understand being on a farm means a lot of work, but there are other things in life too, but what do I know, it was the first time I watched it.

    Re: Farmer Wants a Wife

    I saw about 15 minutes of this show last week, and about half this week. I was with my sister tonight, who was more interested than me. She may become a regular now. Not sure yet myself?? I will say the girls really get tested with the chores they're expected to do. Being raised on a farm, farm wives aren't really expected to do all they did. Anyhow my mom wasn't. There were the chickens, gardening and good cooking for the hardworking men. From what I saw of Josie, 'the farmer' got rid of the right one.

    I disagree, she could have provided WEEKS of entertainment for us.

    Except for the fact that she's pretty immature, I like Brooke. I thought Ashley looked really pretty in tonight's episode with the white dress and very little makeup. And I think Krista and Stacey are both hardworking. I think Matt liked Stacey a lot until she opened her mouth and let is run on and on and on (and on). He's definitely not the kind of guy to ramble on! I think that's why Lisa is so worried about if he likes her or not-he's not the kind of guy to say his every feeling out loud.
    It was funny to see the look on his face, "is she ever gonna stop talking?" I can feel his pain. I hate it when someone has fun doing their monologue. It's like, I get it. You have a whatever life, but it's not always all about you.

    I think he was right to eliminate the fat girl. And it was extremely funny that he was lying about coming out to talk to her.

    I almost did cart wheels when he dismissed Josie last night....and almost wet my pants when she said he was supposed to give her a "departing gift"....what did she think this was The Price Is Right? As for Brooke and whoever who went out clubbing while Matt was on his date....that is going to come back and bite them in the butt...sort of like Undercover Melana on Ugly Joe?

    Re: Farmer Wants a Wife

    I also watched for the first time last night and wasn't very impressed. I don't think he wants a wife just to work for him. They do need to be tested in those things...but every day farm life (I grew up on a farm) is not like that. The wife is not expected to do all of those things that he had them doing. It's good to know to do those things in case help is needed, but that's not what happens on a regular basis.

    I agree. I didn't grow up on a farm, but my husband did and I've learned a lot. I think all of the "work" they're showing is for the purpose of the show. And I'm really trying to figure Matt out. He seems a little shy, but he can't be too shy or he wouldn't be doing this! His shyness comes out when it seems like he's saying lines he's told to say. Sometimes he seems to say them without much emotion. It's almost like he's saying to himself, "Oh,yeah, I have to remember to say this."

    I noticed the first episode did well in the ratings according to USA Today. Also, it's spotlighted on Yahoo's reality rewind today.

    I, too, wish they'd kept Josie around for shock value. I certainly don't like what she said, but she was funny. She can't act like this IRL, especially if she is a real teacher.

    One of my favorite parts of the show is when they interact with the local residents. The looks on the faces at the Bingo game were priceless!

    I think this show is so cute and funny (as I've said before). I'd like to see a whole series like this, maybe another farmer, or a fisherman in Alaska, a cowboy in Texas, etc!

    I'd go for that...unless they're in my home town. That area is kind of hick-ish. lol

    They ahve to come up for some kind of challenge, and since it's "Farmer" wants a wife...of course it's going to be farm work. I lived on a farm for 17 years...I once chopped down thistles in the fields, and helped put up a barbed wire fence. Granted that we lived on a cattle farm and didn't have all the other animals...but still...wasn't that much work. I wonder how much land he has though. The amount of land and type of animals he has would play a lot into how much work was to be done.

    at the beginning of the first show, they said he has 2000 acres
