FNQ fruit farmer joins Farmer Wants a Wife
A CASSOWARY Coast fruit farmer with a dry sense of humour and a love of Italian food will go looking for love on the next season of Farmer Wants A Wife.
Innisfail's Sam Reitano will put it all on the line on the Channel 7 show, which will air in 2020, as he searches for a partner to join him on the land.
Born and raised on a tropical fruit farm, Sam said life with him would mean no cattle to round up or early morning milking - just plenty of fruit to eat, driving lessons on the tractor and mud to rip up on the quad bike.
"I think I'm a good catch because I'm nice, caring, I've got a lot to give, and I love spoiling someone," he said.
The 27-year-old Sicilian said his ideal partner was someone who was trustworthy, loyal and kind, who had a good sense of humour and could handle lots of Italian food.
"It's really important to me to find true love because one day I want to settle down with a family of my own," he said.
"I'd like to have my children be raised on (our) farm, where my grandfather raised his son, and his son raised me."
