Last night was the premiere of Farmer Wants A Wife, and while I was very excited to watch it, I had to choose between it and Bachie in Paradise….

and I’m weak…and had to watch BiP because I love Timm.

I’m sorry.

But I promise I’ll catch up as soon as possible.

But we’ve woken up to a bit of a war on Twitter over the lack of diversity in the cast.

Oh boy are they mad! Mad enough to suggest that show changes its name to ‘Farmer Wants A White Wife’- ouch.

They’re certainly not wrong! But I personally can’t decide what’s worse: an all-white cast like Farmer Wants A Wife, or a ‘multicultural’ cast like Bachelor in Paradise but insultingly not giving hardly any screen time to one POC (Niranga) and using the other POC as a comedic relief and not an actual viable romantic interest (Mary).
