During their time on the 2023 season, David and Emily quickly became a fan-favourite match, with the couple immediately hitting it off during their first double date to David's childhood primary school.
"Straight away, Emily's got that funny, natural, bubbly energy that the kids warm to," he told the camera, with special education aide Emily winning the hearts of the classroom.
After nearly two months of getting to know each of the ladies on his Pozieres apple farm, David chose Emily over fellow fan-favourite Lorelei during the tense final episode.
"When I'm with Emily, I always feel that smile coming on my face constantly," David shared before his final decision, adding, "I think it's fair to say that when we started this adventure, neither of us knew what could unfold."
"Emily, you are the most genuine person I know... I know you haven't had many serious relationships, but starting today, this can be your first, and hopefully last," said David.
Shortly after the final episode aired, David and Emily gave fans a highly-anticipated update during their interview with 7Life.
“Everything has just gone really well,” shared Emily. "I went home for a week or so [after filming] and then after that, I started moving my things and I moved here [to David’s farm] in early January.”
Farmer David also revealed to the publication how the Pozieres community supported them in keeping their relationship under wraps.
"There’s been a really positive understanding from our local community about what the process is,” he explained.
“Everyone that we’re involved with, or know, that has obviously found out, has been really good about it...So it’s meant that Emily can feel relaxed going back to work and things like that, which made the whole transition smoother for the both of us I think.”
