Farmer Wants a Wife is a reality television series developed by Fremantle Media. The first edition premièred in United Kingdom on ITV in 2001. However, the original format of the program is likely to date back to the TV programme Bauer sucht Bäuerin, which was broadcast in 1983 on SRG SSR idée suisse in Switzerland.[1] The basic structure of the program is that a number of farmers are presented with women from the city, from whom they choose one to be their spouse.

After its UK debut in 2001, the show had more than 10 localised versions around the world, with mixed ratings reports. It was the No. 1 television show for stations that aired it in Belgium and Norway, and was the highest rated entertainment show in the Netherlands.[2] Premièred in spring 2008, the U.S. version of Farmer Wants a Wife consists of 8 episodes, during which 10 women are trying to be chosen by just one bachelor farmer. In this the U.S. version differed from the other international versions and it was more fictionalised.[citation needed] In September 2009, Farmer Wants a Wife returned to British television for a series on Five, presented by singer and television personality Louise Redknapp.[3]
