Meet the 'Farmer Wants a Wife' Cast and Host on Fox Dating Show

Farmer Wants a Wife is the new Fox dating show, hosted by Jennifer Nettles, that follows four farmers as they search for real, lasting love.

The series premieres on Wednesday and viewers will see each farmer—Ryan Black, Allen Foster, Hunter Grayson and Landon Heaton—host a group of single women who leave behind the comfort and convenience of city life for the charms and challenges of country living.

On Farmer Wants a Wife, each farmer and their group of hopeful singles will meet and mutually select one another before the women are invited to experience life on one of the farms.

From there, the farmers will show each group what life is really like on a working farm, from tending to the land, feeding cattle and baling hay, to the behind-the-scenes business operations.
