We’ve got some, well, rather intriguing reality TV shows coming our way here in the near future…

I’m talking about Blake Shelton’s new drinking game show called Barmageddon, which takes place at his Nashville Ole Red bar, where tons of celebrities, from Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel, to NASCAR legend Jimmie Johnson will partake in drinking games.

And then you have this MILF Manor show, where eight very attractive older women will spend some time with much younger men to try and find the “love of their life.”

Yeah, that oughta be something…

And now, we have yet another new reality TV show coming our way, and it’s gonna be called Farmer Wants A Wife, according to CMT.

Apparently this show, which originated in the UK, has been going on for quite some time. A version has aired in 32 countries, and has wracked up a total of 180 marriages and 410 children.

It had a brief stint in the United States for one season back in 2008, however it looks like they’re finally ready to give it another try.

And who is gonna be the host, you may ask?

None other than Jennifer Nettles, lead singer for Sugarland (you know the woman who sings the annoyingly catchy “Stuck Like Glue” song).

The show is coming to FOX on March 8th, 2023, and FOX Entertainment President for Unscripted Programming Allison Wallach weighed in on the upcoming premiere:

“Bringing the world’s most popular dating show to FOX requires a superstar host to match.

And we found the perfect pairing in Jennifer, a multi-talented entertainer who’s a little country, a little big city and huge on heart and humor, making her the perfect choice for wrangling romance in the heartland.”

The show is produced by Eureka Productions, Paul Franklin, Chris Culvenor, Eden Gaha, and  executive produced by David Tibballs and David Emery. Lauren Taylor Harding will serve as executive producer and the showrunner of the series as well.

So, what I’m getting so far is this is just a redneck version of The Bachelor.

I guess we’ll see if this show will have as much success in the US as it did in other countries.

Here’s a look at the Aussie version of the show… where apparently every farmer in the country is a super model.
