A wealthy durian wholesaler went on Facebook to advertise for a son-in-law to marry his 26 year old daughter.

And the successful groom was promised 10 million baht in cash if he wins her heart.

All he has to be is hard working, healthy and have business savvy.

Status and education are unimportant, said “Sia” Anon Rotthong in his Facebook plea for a mate for his daughter “Nong Karn”. 

But seeing as the prospective son-in-law must work in the durian business it is clear he must have a nose for the pungent fruit. 

Thai Rath caught up with “Karn” or Karnsita Rotthong after the story exploded on Thai social media. 

She said her dad wasn’t home – he had gone off to Bangkok to be interviewed on TV. She said the phone had not stopped ringing with men wanting to marry her. They couldn’t get any sleep.

Tons of people had been adding her on Line and asking to be friends on Facebook.

Some had been critical of the approach of the father, she said, but not many. 

She said her dad wanted her to be happy and have a family and he wanted someone to help run the durian business. 

Karn received a master’s degree from ABAC. 

She said she is not really interested in dating – just durian. 

One or two men have tried to woo her but she has not found anyone she likes enough yet. 

She denied that the advertisement for a suitor was just a ploy to boost durian sales. 

She said that there was no need to do that – everyone even people abroad knows her dad’s business that is booming.
