The contestants who will take part in this year’s edition of Nigerian reality show Gulder Ultimate Search have been revealed after being selected from 20,000 applicants from across the country.
The 16 contestants taking part in the jungle-set show are: Adewale Adedamola Thompson, Chidinma Okeibe, Damilola Odedina, Emmanuel Nnebe, Estima Edem, Gerald Odeka, Tosin Eniola, Umorean Iniabasi, Jennifer Okorie, Mfom Mikel Essien, Tubuchukwu, Olayinka Omeya, Omokhafe Racheal, Solomon Yankari, Opeyemi Ishmael and Orevapghene Godswill.
Meanwhile, Samson Abah, Odudu Otu, Shalom Omoikhudu and Osasere Ogbanile are the remaining ‘wild card’ contestants who are also fighting for a spot, but only two of them will be chosen from votes, according to the organisers.
“Meet the 16 Gulder Ultimate Search contestants. Who would be worthy to join them? The power is in your hands, vote for your wild card,” the organisers wrote on Instagram.
This year’s show, themed The Age of Craftsmanship, will be hosted by Nollywood actor Gideon Okeke, while 2010 winner and actor Kunle Remi will assume the role of the Taskmaster.
The contestants will battle to outwit each other in the harsh terrain of the jungle in which they are camped while searching for a hidden artefact that decides the last contestant standing, thereby winning the ₦50m (US$122,000) grand prize.
The Gulder Ultimate Search series was created in 2004 and has run for 11 seasons, while a celebrity edition aired in 2010. The show is sponsored by Nigerian Breweries beer brand Gulder.
The show airs from October 16 to December 19 on channels including Africa Magic Showcase, Africa Magic Urban and Africa Magic Family, all part of the MultiChoice group of channels.
