We reckon that none of the ladies on Farmer Wants a Wife want to be sent home. However, as the four farmers fall for some of the women, they also determine which contestants just aren't meant for them. So, how do Farmer Wants a Wife eliminations work? In Season 1, Ryan Black, Allen Foster, Hunter Grayson, and Landon Heaton each picked five women in the series premiere, but they didn't end the season with a gaggle of wives.
Things are different on this particular dating show, so it should come as little shock that the way women are sent home on Farmer Wants a Wife is also different from the norm.
How do 'Farmer Wants a Wife' eliminations work?
Eliminations on Farmer Wants a Wife are a little different than those of other dating reality shows. On shows like The Bachelor, it's a given that at least one woman goes home every week. On Farmer Wants a Wife, each of the men are tasked with letting one woman go if there's someone they don't feel a super strong connection with.
Sometimes, not every farmer opts to send someone home. And right from there, we can see that eliminations on Farmer Wants a Wife aren't like Bachelor rose ceremonies. As the season progresses, the farmers will all be ready to send their weakest connections home. But the big thing is that they don't have to.
Some viewers see this is as a nice change from traditional dating shows, where each episode is centered around the drama of who is being sent home. In Farmer Wants a Wife, everyone has a chance to really explore their connections and see if they can make a relationship work — after all, there's a lot on the line when you're looking for someone be in love with and to help you with the daily farm duties.
Do they have overnight dates on 'Farmer Wants a Wife'?
While Farmer Wants a Wife does feature 24-hour dates, they aren't the typical romantic overnight dates of The Bachelor. The guys and the women sleep in separate rooms for the season.
