WA 'bumpkin' Ashleigh hoping country background will help her win chosen man on Farmer Wants a Wife

The only WA contender on this year’s Farmer Wants a Wife is hoping her “country bumpkin” background will win over her chosen beau.

Ashleigh is a mechanical fitter from South Hedland and is already at home living in remote parts of the State. But her suitor is on the other side of the country — Farmer Harry, below, who runs a grape, cotton and sheep farm in Goolgowi in NSW.

A self-confessed lover of the simple life, the 29-year-old bachelor said he would be a supportive husband and a “red-hot dad”.

“I’m looking for someone who is easy going, loves a laugh and is not afraid to have a go at new things,” Harry said.

Ashleigh, 31, could choose from five farmers on the upcoming Seven show, but admitted she “only had eyes for Harry”.

“He’s super cute and I reckon we would get along,” she said.

While Ashleigh is one of eight women vying for Harry’s heart, her familiarity with rural life may give her an advantage.

“I’m a bit of a country bumpkin myself, so I’m hoping this will help me meet a nice country guy who’s really looking for their best mate and love of their life,” she said.

Farmer Wants a Wife will air soon on Seven/GWN7.
