Natalie Gruzlewski to return as host of Farmer Wants A Wife

Television presenter, Natalie Gruzlewski, will return to her hosting gig on Farmer Wants A Wife when Seven relaunches the franchise in 2020.

The new season was revealed just before the network’s upfronts in October, when a Seven-branded casting call was placed on the Farmer Wants a Wife Facebook page.

Farmer Wants A Wife was initially commissioned in 2007 by Nine from Fremantle Media, based on the UK Format. It ran for nine seasons until being cancelled in 2016.

Gruzlewski hosted the first eight of those seasons, which occurred between 2007 and 2012, before stepping away from television in 2014 to focus on her family. The ninth season and final season was hosted by singer Sam McClymont in 2015.

Gruzlewski said she felt privileged to be a part of the show again.

“I’m excited to be returning to TV for Farmer. It’s a privilege to be a part of the show and witness those special connections as they start to form,” she said.

“I’ve seen firsthand how this process can change lives and I can’t wait to get back into it.”

Farmer Want A Wife brands itself as “Australia’s most successful relationship show”, as it has resulted in nine marriages and 19 children in Australia, and 147 marriages and 280 babies worldwide.

Channel Seven director of network programming, Angus Ross, said Natalie was the perfect choice to see the program return to Australian screens.

“Natalie radiates natural warmth and sincerity and we’re delighted to welcome her to the Seven family,” Ross said.

“Farmer is the original true romance show, delivering more happy endings than any other, and Natalie is the perfect choice to help guide our new crop of single farmers in their search for love.”
