Farmer Wants A Wife star is caught FAKING his living situation

Farmer Wants A Wife star is caught FAKING his living situation as Channel Seven films a different property for his scenes on the dating show

A Farmer Wants a Wife star has been caught using someone else’s farm to woo his contestants on the dating show. 

Dairy farmer Harry, was presented on the show as owning a farm in Gloucester, New South Wales, but The Herald Sun has since revealed his actual property is located more than 900 kilometres away in Kyabram, north Victoria. 

Seven confirmed the farm Harry used was not his real property in a statement to Daily Mail Australia, but insisted the show was not deceiving viewers or his potential partners.

‘Due to Covid, part of Harry’s Farmer Wants A Wife journey was filmed on a dairy farm near Gloucester,’ a spokesman said in a statement.

‘The location of the farm didn’t impact the series as Harry’s ladies were able to experience life on a dairy farm with Harry, including the early morning starts.’

The dating series interestingly never refers to the farm as his own, with voice overs instead referencing ‘Farmer Harry’ when the show cuts to his storyline.

His farm was actually located more than 900 kilometres away than the property filmed on the show, according to The Herald Sun

This isn’t the first time the show has been accused of pulling the wool over viewers’ eyes by filming scenes in ‘fake’ locations.

Last year a viewer who lives in Orbost, the small Victorian town where farmer Matt Trewin is based, claims they’ve never even seen the so-called ‘local date destinations’ featured in the series.

After watching Matt enjoy a rendezvous at his ‘local pub’, the frustrated viewer wrote to Instagram: ‘I live in Orbost and I can tell you that the pub on tonight’s episode is definitely not the pub in Orbost.’

The resident went on to allege that the picturesque winery where Matt took front-runner Tara on a date ‘wouldn’t be within 100km of Orbost either’. 

Elsewhere, the same viewer accused producers of bringing in paid actors to ‘liven up’ the pub scene, claiming that none of the ‘locals’ featured in the episode were ‘Orbost people’.

Farmer Wants A Wife continues Sunday on Channel Seven at 7pm.
