Boer Soek ‘n Vrou S12
It’s a bumper crop for Afrikaans dating show Boer Soek ’n Vrou. It’s the South African spin-off of UK series Farmer Wants a Wife and literally, a farmer is searching for a wife. The single ladies who want to be Mrs Farmer then write him letters. Actual handwritten briewe.
Now flooded with mail, the farmer reads them over a nice strong mug of coffee or out in the middle of his fields while driving his tractor, whichever tickles his farming fancy. And then the dating fun begins.
The big news this season is the inclusion of the first gay farmer to look for love, Damian, a sheep and cattle farmer from Bapsfontein.
“I love meeting the farmers and spending time with them,” says new season 12 host Leah. They are all so passionate about farming and it’s a pleasure to see how proud they are of what they do! I have immense respect for them. And, of course, if they find love, it’s the cherry on top.”
Boer Soek ’n Vrou is a light-hearted, sweet and fun dating show. There’s no backstabbing and drama between the contestants chosen as the potential Vrou, although they’ll probably have to prove that they’re not afraid of driving tractors and ploughing fields to help sow the seeds of love.
