The regional screening for this year’s Gulder Ultimate Search with the theme ‘The Mission’ will commence on Saturday, 2 August in Port Harcourt, Awka, Benin and Lagos and will end on Monday, 18 August.
The venues for the Port Harcourt regionals are Liberation Stadium, Lotus Hotel and Bougainvillea, while that of Awka will take place at the Awka Township Stadium and Marble Arc Hotel.
Contestants will assemble at Ogbe Stadium and Best Western for their trials in Benin, while the National Stadium and Union Bank Sports Club will serve as locations for the Lagos exercise.
In a bid to ensure that more young Nigerians are given the opportunity to participate in the reality TV programme, the deadline for registration has been extended.
Residents of Awka and environs now have up till 4 August to register; while interested participants in Benin are required to register on or before 8 August. The deadline for Lagos registration has also been extended to 12 August.
Over the weekend, visitors to the Ikeja City Mall in Lagos were surprised to find GUS registration booths manned by specially trained personnel. Those who had earlier not registered due to inaccessibility to the Internet or some other reasons quickly took advantage of the opportunity to do so.
The 11th edition of the Gulder Ultimate Search will hold in the rough terrain of the Aguleri jungle, in Anambra State and the contestant who conquers that jungle and finds the missing ancient CUBE, will be rewarded with N10 million and a brand new SUV.
Gulder Ultimate Search is Nigeria’s first and longest running 100 per cent, local reality TV show.
