“What an incredible experience,” she began her post.
“It was so great to be a part of Farmer Wants A Wife season 13 and honestly I had the time of my life.
“Thank you to Matt and his family for allowing us to stay at their amazing farm.
“The producers Kieran and Vic, the film crew, the sound crew, the escorts and of course my beloved Morgan who was my family for two months during my absence.
“Even though I didn’t find the love I was looking for on the show…I did find the love I needed.
“I have found self-love and appreciation and have had the pleasure of making the most beautiful friends of life.
“Congratulations to Olivia and Matt. I wish you both all the best and a happy life.”
