Farmer Will & Jess

A broadacre and sheep farmer who describes himself as an upbeat and positive person, Will looked like a right ray of sunshine. 

Family is a very important part of Will’s life and he was on the search for someone who is confident, has respect for themselves and has space for someone else in their life.

Despite having a connection with two incredible women, Farmer Will chose Jess! After Jess opened up to Farmer Will during the last episode, it was clear they were meant to be.

And in 2023, their relationship is still going strong. On their one year anniversary on March 7, Jess shared a loving tribute to Will.

“Thank you for being you,” she wrote. “I’m so proud of how far we have come and what we have achieved in 12 months. I’m so thankful for your unconditional love and support, you really make me feel like I’m the luckiest girl in the world.

“Cheers to us Willy boy, here’s to a lifetime of happiness, crazy love & amazing memories! Love you.”

Farmer Ben & Leish

A dairy farmer who wore his heart on his sleeve, Ben was looking for an old-fashioned romance like his parents and grandparents. A doting father to a three-year-old-girl, Ben was looking for someone who was family-oriented and loves kids.

And in the finale, Farmer Ben chose Leish! It was a super close call between the final two women, with fans unsure until the last moment who he was going to choose. But ultimately Leish was the woman for Ben – despite the undeniable chemistry between him and Kiani.

However, shortly after the show aired, they revealed their relationship had come to an end.

“Unfortunately we aren’t together anymore – though we did try for some time after the show to make things work,” Ben explained. “Like any relationship, we had our ups and downs and unfortunately we just didn’t work out.”

“I had so much love for Leish and still to this day have so much love for the girl,” he continued.

“I mean I don’t have a bad word to say about her at all and yeah, I hope you can appreciate our privacy in regards to why the relationship broke down.”

Nearly a year after the breakup, Aleisha shared on an Instagram Q&A that while she had “a few close calls” in her search for love, there were still “no new loves.”

“Still ironing out the creases of my love life,” she wrote.

Farmer Harry & Tess

At just 24-years-old, dairy farmer Harry had recently finished studying and had received a bachelor’s degree in Agribusiness. He is currently pursuing Certificate III in Regenerative Agriculture.

He described his ideal woman as having a positive attitude, is honest, knows how to let her hair down and – most importantly – is a good communicator. And Farmer Harry found his match with none other than Tess!

Despite initial reservations about maintaining a long-distance relationship as Tess finished her studies, the loved-up couple are ready to put that obstacle in the distance.

The couple are still together now in 2023 – with Tess posting regular updates to Instagram about their farm life together.

And in a surprise appearance on the 2023 reunion special of the show, the couple revealed they were “going really well.”

“Meeting each other, it’s just made life really richer and it makes me really excited for what is to come,” said Tess. 

Talking about children, Tess joked, “Let’s start with one.”

“We’ll get married first,” Harry said, adding: “I’ve been busy, been to the Gold Coast for nearly nine months now, been working on a cattle farm about 40 minutes inland.

“So we’ve kind of got everything – got the feeling of home, city life, and beach life you could say.”

For Farmer Benjamin, his road to romance ended in unexpected heartbreak on TV. 
As a decision on his final two approached, Benjamin’s torn heartstrings took a backseat when he received devastating news about his grandma’s health.
“I’ve just got off the phone with my dad. I need to be with him and my family. I feel horrid that I have to jump ship right now, leave the ladies alone,” he said. “There’s nothing else I can do.”

Farmer Paige

A first-generation sheep and cattle farmer, Paige knew she wanted to be a farmer at the age of 15 and she made it happen. 

Farmer Paige left fans distraught when she sent her final two packing and walked out of Farmer Wants A Wife just one episode before the finale.
By the end of the farm stays, Paige hadn’t felt a genuine romantic spark with Cody or Ayden, and though Cody became her first kiss on the show, his hesitance left Paige worried.
Though viewers were heartbroken that Paige hadn’t found love, she said walking away from the show single despite all her best efforts was actually “empowering”.
