GUS 11: THE 12 ARE READY FOR THE JUNGLE
Thousands applied for this year’s edition of the Gulder Ultimate Search show. Just 30 of them scaled through to one of the final stages of the selection process.
It is still not over until it is over. The very last selection is still in a few hours where just 12 of the lot will proceed to the jungle in Aguleri, Anambra State, to fight for the Ultimate man/woman crown.
The final selection party, billed to hold in Lagos later today (Saturday), is expected to be an evening of fun as some Nigerian entertainers are set to thrill the guests as well as douse tensions for the contestants who hope to make the final list.
There are speculations that Darey Art Alade and Burna Boy would be the artistes to perform at the event, but Onyeka Okoli, Senior Brand Manager, Gulder, Nigerian Breweries Plc., did not confirm the speculations, saying it will be part of the surprise packages for the night.
“The selection of the final contestants who will proceed to the jungle for the search is always a big deal in the GUS scheme of events. So we always go the whole hog to give our guests the best of an evening. For this year’s edition, two of Nigeria’s finest music acts will be performing to the delight of our guests. However who these artistes are, will be part of the surprise packages that await guests at the event,” he said.
The contestant who emerges the 11th Ultimate hero from the contest will go home with the grand prize of N10m and an SUV, while the second, third and fourth runners-up will get N3m, N2.5m and N1.5m, respectively. When evicted, each of the contestants will receive differing sums of money, ranging from N1m to N1.5m.
