In line with the adoption of a new format for the eighth edition of Gulder Ultimate Search, a television reality show organised by the Nigerian Breweries Plc, two anchormen have been chosen to steer the affairs of the show.

They are popular actor, Bob Manuel Udokwu and R&B singer, Darey Art Alade. Showbiz Trends learnt that while Bob Manuel has been the host for the last four seasons, Darey is joining the show as the host for the first time.

Incidentally, both artistes were contestants on the celebrity edition of GUS, which was aired last year.

Yusuf Ageni, Corporate Affairs Adviser, NB Plc, said the choice of two hosts for GUS 8, as against one anchor person, is part of the new concept of GUS.

“As we have said, 30 contestants will compete for the grand prize in GUS 8. The new course that GUS will be charting this year, the fun and excitement which we anticipate that it will generate, necessitated our choice for two anchormen this year,” Ageni said. The theme for this year’s GUS is Contest of Champions and it will be held at the Egbetua Quarters, Ososo Mountains in Akoko Edo, Edo State.

The ultimate man of the search is expected to walk home with a cash prize of N7 million, an SUV worth N10 million and N500,000 wardrobe allowance.

Meanwhile registration for the search ends this Friday and there is a foreclosure of any extension to the deadline, according to Ita Bassey, Senior Brand Manager, Gulder.

“We are impressed by the number of Nigerians who have signed up to be a part of this year’s event. The number keeps growing by the day. It tells me that Nigerians are eager about this year’s GUS, which is the eighth in the series,” Bassey said.
