Call me stupid, romantic, tell me I have no life, but the idea of love-on any stage-appeals to something inside of me that I will never switch off. Farmer Wants a Wife has had so many weddings and babies, I can't even remember the figures. Sure, some shows doom the couple from the start. They're not fair. But watching an actual love story unfold right in front of your eyes and having those awwww moments seriously affect me. I just melt into a little puddle.
Then I started thinking, what if they sceptics were right? What if it's all set up for ratings? What if a show like... The Bachelor, was actually set up from the very beginning? How would the behind the scenes go, would the other women pick up on it? Probably not if the set-upee went and did something dumb like fall for the man.
Billionaire Banjo Grahams originally signed up for The Bachelor drunk as a skunk and willing to do anything to bed Australia’s most beautiful women but when he sobers up he realises he could lose his entire fortune and more of he goes through with it. Unable to back out of an ironclad contract, he makes a deal with the network boss to rig the show, picking the lucky bachelorette ahead of time and guiding the season to meet his own ends and keep the board happy.
But Eliza Peterson has other plans for the spoilt playboy. When her father tells her she isn’t going to produce The Bachelor but appear as a one of the girls, she is livid that he is still treating her like an intern. She wants his respect, or even his notice, and plans to go along with the show with her dignity intact to prove to her father that she is worth something, not only to the network, but to him.
She begins by steering Banjo in the direction of the other hopeful women but soon finds herself drawn to a side of him she never knew he had…
