Fans and viewers will enjoy the adventure of Gulder Ultimate Search from Saturday, October 16, to Sunday, December 19, 2021. Popularly known as GUS, this reality TV show dominated the airwaves in the early 2000s and will be returning to TV screens for its 12th season ‘The Age of Craftmanship’, after a long break. The show is organized by Nigerian breweries in partnership with MultiChoice Nigeria, and is based on a “survival of the fittest” format, where 20 contestants will struggle to find a hidden treasure and the winner will be crowned the ‘Ultimate Man’. GUS is scheduled to air on Africa Magic Showcase (DStv channel 151), Africa Magic Urban (DStv channel 153) and Africa Magic Family (DStv channel 154 & GOtv channel 2) on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 pm till 9 pm.

The show which comes to screens this month and runs till December will have 16 contestants compete in groups for 8 weeks, and engage in 39 meticulously designed intensive physical and mental tasks, designed to be both exciting and intensive. The show will have dedicated task segments, contestants’ in-residence segment, diary room segment, host driver, and voice over to drive the story. Contestants will vote to eliminate each other weekly, while the viewers will vote to keep their favourites in. Contestants will also be able to earn immunity through various tasks during the weekdays. The daily residence segment will air as a 2-hour recap that will run from 7pm to 9pm daily and a rerun the next day from 11am to 1pm on Pop Central (DStv 189).
