These four single farmers are looking for their forever love on season 2 of the FOX show
Farmer Wants a Wife is helping four bachelors plant their roots with their forever love.
The second season of the FOX show focuses on four farmers — Ty Ferrell, Mitchell Kolinsky, Brandon Rogers and Nathan Smothers — and their journey to love. Each bachelor will host a group of eight single women who all hail from a city and expose them to the country lifestyle.
The show has multiple international iterations and first aired in the U.S. in 2023. Season 2's stars range in age from 23 to 42 and work on all different styles of ranches, from a citrus farm to a potato and barley farm.
Hosted by singer Jennifer Nettles, the reality series will show the 32 single women “what it is really like to live as ranchers do — from tending to the homestead to feeding cattle and baling hay,” per FOX.
Farmer Wants a Wife premieres on FOX on Feb. 1 and will be available to stream on Hulu.
So who are the four farmers looking to find their match? Here’s everything to know about Ty Ferrell, Mitchell Kolinsky, Brandon Rogers and Nathan Smothers and their lives before the show.
Ty Ferrell, 42
Hailing from Sikeston, Missouri, Ferrell is a 42-year-old single dad. He owns a 50-acre farm with horses and roping cattle and lists his occupation as a team roper, per FOX.
Per his bio, he is divorced and has a 12-year-old daughter, Lennon Tyler. Lennon shares an interest in horseback riding and fishing with her father, and the proud dad often posts sweet tributes to his little girl on Instagram.
“She may not like it as much when I call her my baby girl any more, but that’s one thing she will always be in my eyes,” he wrote on her 12th birthday in August 2023. “Daddy lil girl from day one. Happy 12th birthday Lennon Tyler.”
Ferrell joined Farmer Wants a Wife in the hopes of finding his “person” to enjoy life on his farm with.
“I’m looking for someone to be my person, my partner, the good, the bad and everything that’s in between,” he said in his promotional video for the show. “This experience is about me finding somebody.”
He specified that he was looking for someone who has “high level intelligence” and a “beautiful mind.” However, the woman would need to win the approval of his daughter first.
“My little girl is my everything,” he said.
Mitchell Kolinsky, 27
Kolinsky is a first-generation farm owner in Mount Juliet, Tennessee, though he is originally from another town in the state, Knoxville. He owns a new farm with a 19th-century cabin where he lives with his three dogs, however, he has goals of expanding his land into the nearby woods.
Though he grew up in Knoxville with parents and two brothers who have more traditional white-collar jobs, Kolinsky always loved the outdoors and had plans to make a career out of his passion.
“He knew a life in the heartland was the one for him, so he bought his first farm to pursue his dream of becoming a horse and cattle rancher,” his bio in the press release reads. “He hopes to build a farming legacy with a wife by his side.”
Having grown up as the youngest of three boys, Kolinsky places great value on family and relied on the support of his crew — including his baby niece and nephew — as he embarked on his journey to find love on the show.
“Family is everything to me, being the baby of 3 boys I always looked up to my older brothers and parents for love and support,” he wrote under a photo of him with his whole family on Instagram. “But now it is time to find it on my own.”
Beyond family, Kolinsky is looking for a wife who will grow the farm with him, as that’s one of his main priorities.
“This land gives me my greatest peace,” he said in his promotional video on Instagram. “If I could share it with someone special, man, that would just mean the world to me. I feel like I got everything in my puzzle but one, and that’s the woman to make it all complete.”
Brandon Rogers, 29
Rogers is a 29-year-old farmer from Center, Colorado, where he is a second-generation potato and barley farmer on a 1,000-acre farm. Center is a “one-stoplight town” surrounded by Rogers’ family farm, per EW, and he grew up working on the land with his dad.
“Later in his 20s, he returned to work the farm full time to continue his family’s farming legacy,” per his bio. “His business is set up and doing well, and now the missing piece is that special person to share it with.”
According to his Facebook, Rogers attended Colorado Mesa University and Adams State University before going on to his family’s farm. He describes himself in his bio as “just a small town farmer with a green thumb who loves the outdoors, golf, and learning new things.”
Rogers may be busy tending to his crops, including alfalfa, but that doesn’t mean he’s not ready to find the "one!"
“I am on this show looking for love,” he said during the group’s promotional video in December 2023.
Nathan Smothers, 23
The youngest of the group is Smothers, a 23-year-old citrus and cattle farmer from Bartow, Florida. Smothers’ ranch is 300 acres and he has an additional 500 acre cattle property, both of which have been in his family for four generations.
When he was 12 years old, his dad died, leaving him as the “man of the house,” per his bio, and helping his mom and three older sisters: Nicole, Savannah and Aubrey.
“He returned to live and work on the farm full time when he graduated from college and is eager to begin his next chapter, including starting a family with the love of his life,” his bio reads.
Besides ranching, Smothers is a doting uncle to six nieces and nephews, welcoming his most recent nephew in January 2024. He also has a large platform on TikTok where he posts videos of himself performing his duties on the farm and his own musings.
He may be young, but Smothers is ready to settle down and find the “love of [his] life.”
“I can’t wait to find that partner that can be with me until hopefully the end of time,” he said in the group promo.
