Urban girls hope country road leads to love

April 6, 2008

These city girls are hoping that the grass is greener when it comes to finding true love.

They are four of the 60 women who will compete for the hearts of six farmers in the upcoming season of Channel Nine's The Farmer Wants A Wife.

"Couples that are in the country spend a lot of time together, they work together," said Christy Joyce, a 19-year-old personal assistant from Wollongong.

Sarah Walton, 27, a nanny and part-time nutrition student from Manly, said: "I just seem to keep meeting the same sort of guys. They don't want to commit".

Natasha Fernandez, 25, an MBA student from Camperdown, said: "Sydney men are very full of themselves, money-driven, into playing games. Farmers are known to be more considerate."

Simone Springall, a 23-year-old property manager from Cromer, in Sydney's northern beaches, said: "Country guys are down to earth; I like that they're independent."
