If there's one thing that can turn a season of Farmer Wants a Wife on its head, it's the addition of new contestants. So when host Jennifer Nettles mentions some potential newbies, none of the remaining ladies are happy. Until now, most have developed bonds and even friendships with one another. Many worry that bringing in "new girls," as they say in the March 14 episode, could totally change the dynamic.

But who are these new girls on Farmer Wants a Wife, and are they permanent additions to each of the four farmers' ranches? The guys all started the season with eight ladies each. Then, those contestants were narrowed down to five. Now, all of the farmers have even less than five women each who are still vying for their attention. But after the March 21 episode, some new ladies (and one familiar face) have been thrown into the mix.

Who are the new girls in 'Farmer Wants a Wife' Season 2?

Bringing in some surprised contestants halfway through a Farmer Wants a Wife Season is nothing new to the franchise. The Australian version of the show did the same thing when two new women were brought in for each of the five farmers at one point. But with the U.S. version of the show, the farmers each have a choice in the matter.

Each of the farmers get a surprise letter about new ladies for them to meet. But the farmers each have a say in whether or not they want to welcome new faces, especially since some of the farmers are starting to make genuine connections.

For Nathan, his new lady is Makenzie, who left earlier in the season to head home to Ohio and deal with a family emergency. She's back and ready to dive headfirst into the journey of love on the farm, and although Nathan wonders if too much time has passed, he brings her back home.

Brandon's new lady is Emerson, and he opts to bring her back to the farm with him. The new woman here for Ty is Ashley, but the ladies back on Ty's farm are especially resistant for Ty to bring a new competing lady into the mix. Still, she's here to make a connection with him.

And although Mitchell initially says he isn't bringing anyone back home, when he meets Natalie, he has some other thoughts.

"She checks so many boxes," Mitchell tells producers. "It changes things for me."

And in the end, Mitchell brings Natalie back home with him.

Farmer Brandon only had two ladies left on his farm before Emerson arrived.

Brandon had just two ladies left at his farm by the end of the March 14 episode. In the previous week, Reba and Annellyse both choose to leave after a group mixer date makes it clear that neither of them have enough feelings for Brandon to continue. With that being the case, though, it made sense for Brandon to welcome a new woman to his farm, if only to give himself a stronger chance of finding "the one."

How many episodes is 'Farmer Wants a Wife' Season 2?

The first season of Farmer Wants a Wife on Fox was 11 episodes. Since Season 2 is following suit with mostly everything else, we can safely assume it also has 11 episodes. That means these newbies are potentially arriving right in the middle of the season. But at a time when some of the more dramatic ladies have already gone home, it may be the right time to shake things up for the remaining women.

Watch Farmer Wants a Wife on Thursdays at 9 p.m. EST on Fox.
