Applications for Rural Bachelor of the Year 2017 have now closed.
Thank you to everyone who entered. We will be announcing finalists
Monday 12 June.
Fieldays Rural Bachelor is the opportunity of a lifetime. A group of selected young agri-professionals will embark on an all-expenses-paid trip to Fieldays, with the chance to find fame, fortune and love.
This year the competition kicks off with the Farmlands Road Trip. The Bachelors will make their way across Auckland, Waikato and the Bay of Plenty, visiting Farmlands stores to take part in exciting activities and challenges. Arriving at Fieldays, the Bachelors will have their skills, attitude and all-round charisma tested in a number of competitive challenges and entertainment, from speed fencing to speed dating, log splitting to construction. The challenges are largely agricultural-based but will have a few fun twists thrown in to test the character of these rural men.
From Wednesday to Friday there will be challenges every day, with a winner announced at the official prizegiving on Saturday. With two titles up for grabs – Rural Bachelor of the Year 2017 and People’s Choice Award 2017 – and a prize pool of $20,000, the Bachelors will be putting everything on the line to prove they’ve got what it takes.
Make time in your schedule to catch the Rural Bachelor challenges and check out the hard-working single, rural men representing the farming community.
All Bachelor finalists will be kitted out by Swanndri and Skellerup and will get the opportunity to visit Fieldays exhibitors and attend demonstrations.
