HOW many city boys does it take to change a light bulb?

Well, apparently, few know how, and that is why Corowa-born Renee Lavis, pictured, has returned to the bush to find herself a husband.

The country girl, who moved to Sydney to seek a career in public relations, is competing for love on the new reality television series, When Love Comes to Town.

Ms Lavis, along with 11 other city women, has packed her bags and headed bush in search of her perfect partner.

She is no stranger to the country — she grew up on a farm just outside Corowa before moving into the town when she was 14.

“I used to help out in the shearing shed and with lamb marking,” she said.

“I’m a country girl and I’m more attracted to country guys.

“I don’t really click with city boys, they are a bit pretentious for my liking.”

Ms Lavis, 24, said men from the country were comfortable in their own skin and didn’t feel the need to dress up.

“The guys in the country are more laid back and they are a bit rough around the edges,” she said.

“And they know how to fix things — half the guys in the city wouldn’t know how to change a light bulb.”

On her quest for love, Ms Lavis will travel to Cobram, Sale, Orange and Port Macquarie.

She said that had an advantage.

“I am the only country girl on the show — the others are very city,” she said.

“I was never that great at farming activities so it’s nice for me to show off to the boys because compared with the other girls I look very country.”

When Love Comes to Town will air tonight at 8.30pm on WIN.
