For seven episodes, we’ve watched as Farmer Matt Neustadt narrowed down his list of potential spouses. And Wednesday night, he makes his final choice on the season finale of “Farmer Wants a Wife”.
Matt Neustadt had finally narrowed down his choices last week, eliminating both Amanda and Kanisha from the competition. Now there were just two “city girls” to decide between, and find the perfect farmer’s wife.
Farmer Matt had the girls do many challenges along the way such as chasing and crating chickens, milking goats, and yucky ones such as determining pregnancy in cattle. He obviously wanted to see which of the city girls could cut it as the wife of a farmer.
Tonight on the season finale, there is only Brooke Ward from Texas left and Christa from New York. Both ladies go on a date with Matt alone, with Brooke’s being an afternoon date of riding 4 wheelers, and Krista’s date being more elegant, riding in a horse-drawn carriage to a nice dinner at Matt’s home.
During Brooke’s date, she wanted so badly to let Matt know of her feelings towards him, but was too afraid of rejection. While Christa seemed quite confident that she was the one that would become the young farmer’s wife.
The two remaining ladies, Brooke and Christa, get all dolled up for the finale where almost the entire little town is gathered in their front yard of the home in which they are staying.
The ladies brace themselves as Matt tells them how much he appreciated them being there, and lets them know that a crop duster plane will be flying overhead with the name of the special lady he has chosen to be his wife.
Both ladies could barely stand to look as the plane flew overhead, but there it was saying “Matt Loves Brooke”. Brooke was already in tears and you could tell she was quite surprised. Christa tried to retain her dignity as she said her goodbye to Matt. She obviously thought she “had it in the bag”.
The end of the finale shows Matt Neustadt driving off on his tractor with his choice for a wife, Brooke.
