Farmer Wants A Wife: Meet Farmer Nick, Neil and some of the potential wives

Meet some of the love-seeking farmers, and their potential wives

It's back.

Yep, come Sunday night Australia's farmers are searching for a wife on national TV again.

After nine-seasons on Nine, Seven has taken the mantel and has five farmers - two from Queensland, two from NSW and one Tasmanian, all looking for love with one of the 40 women taking part.

The show does have some clout - it's resulted in nine marriages and 20 babies from the Australian shows so far - 99 marriages and 200 children across the globe.

So without further ado, let's meet some of those - both farmers and the potential wives - featured this year:

Farmer Nick, Tasmania

Farmer Nick.

A farmer who knows how to produce wine, lives on a vineyard only 30 minutes outside Launceston, Tasmania, and has tussled with a wild animal sounds like the dream catch.

The 44-year-old owner of Marion's Vineyard, Farmer Nick, has lived a colourful life.

He's built bird aviaries for Foo Fighters guitarist Pat Smear, been a handler for Hunter S. Thompson on set of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and punched a coyote when it bit his then-girlfriend during a meteor shower viewing.

Competing with seven other girls for one man is something Karissa Godfrey, Bathurst, in NSW's Central Tablelands, would usually walk away from. But not this time.

Ms Godfrey is mum to two young girls two girls - Lily, 7, and Bella, 3, - and she said it had been hard to meet someone new as a single mother.

"At the end of last year I saw the ad come up for Farmer Wants a Wife and it had been eight months since I split up with my husband," Ms Godfrey, 34, said.

"There's shows out there like Bachelor or Love Island, but I chose this one because I remember watching this when it was on TV and it just gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling."

Farmer Neil, NSW

Merino grazier Neil Seaman, 43, from Crookwell, on NSW's Southern Tablelands, applied for the show after encouragement from his sisters-in-law.

The divorced father of three said he's already had his fair share of relationship ups and downs and was keen to find love again.

"I was certainly nervous, there's not many times you go into something where you're dating eight girls," he said.

"It would be classified as every man's dream but, when you have a think about it, it also falls into the nightmare category."

She couldn't find a man in Moree in NSW's north, so Chantele Guyer has turned to reality TV in the hopes of finding a husband.

The Moree girl, who has recently moved to Port Macquarie, NSW, is a soon-to-be 32-year-old farmer, entrepreneur and furniture artist.

She applied for the show never expecting she'd be selected.

"I saw it pop up on Facebook and thought I might try," she said.

"I never thought I'd get through, but I was single and couldn't meet anyone in Moree, so I thought I'd give it a go. I thought it was a different way to meet someone, and would be a great opportunity and experience as well."
