Just when you thought you'd seen all the possible reality dating shows, along comes Farmer Wants a Wife. The title of the series is father self-explanatory:
Matt Neustadt, a Missouri farmer, serves as the Matt Grant of the show, hoping to find true love from an assortment of desperate women.
Neustadt will whittle down the 10 women who are sick of city-slickers and want to try their hand at love with a country boy via a series of farm-themed challenges -- such as driving a tractor and taking care of livestock -- as well as through group activities and dates.
"I am a third-generation farmer on land owned by family members and myself," said Neustadt. "The farm has been in my family since the late 1940s."
Will Matt Neustadt find true love on Farmer Wants a Wife? We'd never thought we'd ask that question.
