“Farmer, single, looking for…” vegan
What became of Nimal and Melina?
They were probably the quietest team in the current season of “Farmer, single, seeks…”: Farmer Nimal and his lady-in-waiting Melina. The vegans had a lot in common but diverged without revealing whether they are a couple or not. Blick followed up.
Farmer Nimal and his lady-in-waiting Melina. The two spent a very harmonious farm week.

Farmer Nimal (30) from the canton of Bern and his lady-in-waiting Melina (25) from Germany are two of the quiet kind. The “farmer, single, is looking for…” couple spent their farm week with the animals at Nimal’s farm, built a pond for the geese rescued from the slaughterhouse and went for walks with the goats.
By the end of their time together, Nimal was positive. He hopes that he and Melina would see each other again and stay in touch. The native of Zurich admitted during the show that he had grown fond of his lady-in-waiting. And she seemed to return the tender feelings of the farmer.
No vegan love
When asked by Blick, neither Melina nor Nimal want to talk about how they are doing as a couple. But reliable sources say that the farmer and his lady-in-waiting have not seen each other since they said goodbye. The sympathetic duo also no longer have contact. So unfortunately no love between the animal-loving vegans.
It is not known what caused it. Nimal made a confession to his Melina during court week and spoke openly about his alcohol addiction in the city on the Limmat: “Zurich is a big part of my past,” says Nimal. Two years ago he went into withdrawal and is now off the bottle without relapse. Before that, he was addicted to alcohol for eight years, as he admits to Melina. “And I’m fine.”
The wooden heart is waiting to be picked up
It seemed as if these open words could not deter Melina. Rather, as she reveals in an individual interview, she is impressed by Nimal’s strength: “I don’t see him with different eyes. It’s amazing that he made it out of such a situation and was ready to accept the help.”
So the wooden heart that Melina gave Nimal as a pledge when they left will still be in the Bernese Oberland. Who knows, maybe the Germans will pick it up after all.
