I moved your question to the Q&A forum, as it had not really anything to do with the Tutorial (Part 10).
Here is a short run down with the Farmer (R21). I had deleted the Weight, Skin, and the items for the Character Object (Weighting list).
In this way, I have a rig and a model not related to each other so far.
Please have a look.
I can send you an upload link in case you can’t attach it here (zip) or if you have no option to use one of these cloud options: DropBox, Google, Adobe, Amazon, or Apple.
All the best
