COMPETING with seven other girls for one man is something Karissa Godfrey would usually walk away from. But not this time.
She is one of 40 women who are looking for love on Farmer Wants a Wife which is due to air later this month.
Five farmers have been selected for the show, including Crookwell merino grazier Neil Seaman, with each farmer picking eight ladies (contestants) they would like to meet.
While the ladies are from all over Australia, two are from the Central West - Brooke MacDonald from Lithgow and Karissa Godfrey from Bathurst.

"At the end of last year I saw the ad come up for Farmer Wants a Wife and it had been eight months since I split up with my husband," Ms Godfrey, 34, said.
"There's shows out there like Bachelor or Love Island, but I chose this one because I remember watching this when it was on TV and it just gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling."
Ms Godfrey is mum to two young girls two girls - Lily, 7, and Bella, 3, - and she said it had been hard to meet someone new as a single mother.
"I thought it's [the show] a great opportunity to meet someone," she said.
However, when day one of shooting came around Ms Godfrey said it was was overwhelming at first.
"I remember hopping out of the car and there was cameras everywhere and it was such a surreal moment and I thought that I'd just try to enjoy the experience and lap it up," she said.
"It was such a rollercoaster ... I was competing with seven other girls for one guy, I would never do that in real life.
"A couple of times I thought 'what am I doing' ... it was crazy, but you figure it out along the way."
While she doesn't believe in love at first sight because it's "too cliche", she does believe in attraction at first sight.
"When he [Farmer Neil] walked in the room with his boots and hat on I was taken aback because everyone looks different in real life," Ms Godfrey said.
"He was an attractive man and I was pleasantly surprised.
"I genuinely felt like he was a kind person. I was looking for someone who was older and settled."
