Farmer Wants A Wife star barely recognisable after transformation: 'Hot'

Sophie Holcombe looks worlds away from her time on the reality show.

After winning Farmer Brenton’s heart on this year’s season of Farmer Wants A Wife, Sophie Holcombe has debuted a brand new look on social media.

The 25-year-old social media manager, who had chocolate brown hair on the show, has shared a number of snaps on Instagram showing off her new caramel blonde ‘do.

A recent post shows Sophie posing with her co-stars Francesca Copas and Rachel Boothman, who was Brenton’s runner-up, wearing a black outfit and red lipstick with her fresh hair.

She also shared a snap earlier this month posing on a balcony with her newly-lightened locks glowing in the sunset.


Sophie’s followers quickly filled her comments section with compliments, with plenty of people agreeing she looks “stunning”.

“I love the blonde colour on you,” one person wrote, while another added, “You are beautiful”.

“Looking gorgeous Soph,” a third shared.

“Umm hi can you not be so hot,” someone else replied.

Sophie looks back at her time on the show

A week after the reality show finished airing on TV last month, Sophie shared a lengthy post on Instagram opening up to her followers about her journey.

“Meeting Brenton and going through this experience has been one of the best things I’ve done. It was a fun and emotional adventure, both at the time and then watching back on,” she wrote.

“I was lucky to be joined by some strong and beautiful women who put their heart on the line and supported me as I did the same. To hold respect for each other in such strange circumstances shows how special they all are!”


She went on to reveal that she has been living with Brenton in Darriman, Victoria - where he works as a sheep and cattle farmer - for the past five months.

“Having that secret out of the bag has been a huge relief,” she added. “I cannot wait to continue enjoying life on the farm and be able to finally share what that looks like.

“Congrats to all the other couples for finding love and thank you sooo much to everyone for the support. I see all your nice messages and it means the world.”
