Seven’s director of production Andrew Backwell told Mediaweek earlier this month about the production of Farmer Wants a Wife: “It has all been delivered and starts on air soon. We are very happy with the way it has come up. It is almost an antidote to Married at First Sight. It offers genuine love affairs, a bit of Mills & Boon. We genuinely want the relationships to work. It is about going back to basics and helping couples finding true love.”

Gruzlewski hosted eight seasons of Farmer Wants a Wife between 2007-2012 when it was broadcast on Nine.
