GUS contestants finally emerges Sunday
This year, over 30,000 individuals registered to participate for Gulder Ultimate Search 9. After registration, the individuals had to undergo several physical and mental exercises at locations in Owerri, Benin, Makurdi and Lagos. Of the thousands that registered their interest, 30 individuals were selected and are currently in Lagos for the final selection process.
Only 12 will proceed to the Usaka Forest in Obot Akara Local Government area of Akwa Ibom State, where this year’s edition of Gulder Ultimate Search will hold. The winner walks away with N9 million, N500,000 swagger allowance and a brand new SUV worth N10 million. This is in addition to the bragging rights of being referred to as the Ultimate Man or Woman, with its numerous benefits.
It is also expected that the ‘host(s)’ of Gulder Ultimate Search 9 will be revealed at the event. Last year, two anchors hosted the programme for the first time in the show’s nine year history. It remains to be seen whether the show will retain the Gulder Ultimate Search 8 two-anchor format, or whether it will revert to the single anchor format as in the show’s preceding years.
For this year, three past winners of Gulder Ultimate Search will be playing the role of Gatekeepers. They are Dominic Mudabai (Gulder Ultimate Search 4 winner), Michael Nwachukwu (Gulder Ultimate Search 5 winner) and Christopher Okagbue (Gulder Ultimate Search 8 winner).
