A BATHURST childcare worker who made an early impact on Farmer Wants a Wife has been chosen by Farmer Neil for a one-on-one date.

Bathurst's Karissa Godfrey is one of three women on merino grazier Neil Seaman's Crookwell farm who is hoping that sparks will fly.

During Sunday night's episode, Farmer Neil said he and Karissa shared a similar personality and chose her for a special one-on-one date.

"Sometimes after emotional nights it's easy to retreat and that's how I do it. I think sometimes this person does as well," he said.

Karissa said there had been an instant connection between them.

"Ever since I saw him there was a connection there between us and to be able to have a one-on-one date with him is exciting and hopefully the start of something special," she said.

Farmer Wants a Wife viewers were also treated to some catch up footage of Karissa, Justine and Megan on his farm during the week.

Host Natalie Gruzlewski said each of the five farmers had encouraged their ladies to try their hand at farm work.

"The ladies need to show that they can hack it on the farm," she said.

Farmer Neil asked the ladies to help clean out a muddy, dirty dam on his property and while it ended up in a mud fight between him, Karissa and Justine, Megan stood back.

"I don't cope with flirting with another man with two other girls vying for attention. For me it's attractive if a man shows that he's interested in you," Megan said.

"There has to be interest in the relationship to start evolving."

Following the mud fight, Karissa said she saw relationship potential in Farmer Neil.

"Neil's definitely a potential partner, for sure," she said.

Farmer Wants a Wife continues on Channel Seven on Monday at 7.30pm.
