Farmer Wants a Wife’s Sam Messina sends two fan favourites home in brutal SHOCK twist


Mackenzie Phillips was once the favourite tipped to win Farmer Sam Messina’s heart.

But Tuesday night’s episode of Farmer Wants a Wife ended in heartbreak for the nurse when she was sent home in a shock double elimination.

Sam, also 24, told Mackenzie and fellow contestant Allanah Taranto that he didn’t see a future with either of them.

The episode saw the farmers and ladies sit down to dinner, where the farmers were served up a menu of questions written by the ladies with no topic being off-limits.

Allanah asked Sam if he thought he was ready for a relationship. 

He bluntly answered ‘next question,’ which prompted Allanah to ask more.

‘I don’t want you to be upset, but I think Mackenzie and I deserve some answers,’ she began. ‘Be honest, that’s the most courageous thing you could do.’

Ouch! Sam told the Oncology nurse and Allanah Taranto that he didn't see a future with either of them

Later on in the episode, Sam asked Allanah and Mackenzie to step outside for a private chat to address their future. 

In the cool breeze of the night, Sam told both ladies that they had both ostensibly been placed in the friend zone.   

‘It’s been a crazy rollercoaster,’ he began, before adding, ‘I didn’t think it was going to be this tough.  

‘I did want to come into this and find love. Just recently, I haven’t seen anything more than a friendship with you girls.’

Mackenzie walked off immediately while Allanah questioned him repeatedly, asking him if he was telling the truth.

Sam replied: ‘I have tried. I wanted more. I really did.’

Mackenzie was confused by Sam’s sudden change of heart but said she cared for him.

‘When it’s just him and me, he’s a completely different person and that’s the person I can share my life with. That is the person I love being around. I don’t understand,’ she said. 

Sam acknowledged he had a strong connection with Mackenzie at the start, but it ‘wasn’t love.’
