As the competition gets fierce by the day, and with the eviction of two members of theÂ order of heroes participating in this yearâ€™s edition of the soar away television realityÂ show, the Gulder Ultimate Search, drama, intrigues, squabbles, tension, failure andÂ success have become the lot of the remaining 10 contestants in this once in a life timeÂ fame and fortune seeking adventurous game.
They came back rejoicing from the Place of The Talking Drum where they had gone toÂ display their musical prowess having been schooled earlier in the day by one of Nigeriaâ€™sÂ leading music divas, Muma Gee.
It was a wonderful night indeed as a delicious meal also awaited them courtesy MercyÂ Itohan who was still serving her punishment. They had their fill and chatted freely withÂ one another before going into deep slumber.
The next morning, they all filed out at their task zone for the dayâ€™s challenge.Â Bob-Manuel, the anchor, welcomed them and read out instructions of the dayâ€™s challenge; aÂ group game called Sandbag Suck Them. They formed two groups.
Group A was led by Adeleke and Group B was led by Atiku. At the end of the day,Â Atikuâ€˜sÂ group made up of Adaobi, Chukwuma, Kunle, and Sabdat, won the game. Their prize was aÂ five-star treatment at â€˜The Tent of Luxuryâ€™.
It was a painful loss for the Adeleke-led group which was made up of Caroline, Simeon,Â Ozioma and Mercy.Â Mercy caused the failure of her group by her inability to cross overÂ the beam that others crossed effortlessly.
Their reward according to the spokesperson for the Council of Elders, Bob-Manuel, was â€œgoÂ back to your camp and make sure you fix your tent, the leaking roof must be fixedÂ permanently. Patch up the roof properly and ensure your tent is habitableâ€.
While serving their punishment, the group decided to pamper themselves with the availableÂ food stuffs. They had their bath and ate to their fill since it was just five of them.Â They came together and inspired themselves happily, making the best use of theirÂ situation.
Meanwhile, when the winning team got to the Tent of Luxury, they couldnâ€™t believe whatÂ they met. A cosy tent with a refrigerator filled to the brim with all kinds of assortedÂ chilled alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks.
There was also more than enough mouth-watering edibles i.e. food and fruits. SoftÂ mattresses, pillows and games were also provided for their total comfort within the timeÂ frame that it lasted.
It was a memorable day in the life of the five adventurous youths, searching for fame andÂ fortune in Omo Forest.
