Nigerian Breweries Plc has unveiled 12 contestants, instead of 10 usually selected, for participation in its annual television reality show, the Gulder Ultimate Search
The event was held at the at the main hall of the Lagoon Restaurant, Victoria Island. Out of the 41 youth shortlisted after a three week search across the country, only 18 were called on stage. The moderator, under the watchful eyes of guests and the organisers, was saddled with the task of pruning down the first list of 41 hopefuls to 18. His task became more difficult when he had to come up with the final list based on requirements.
After engaging the 18 in mental tasks and observing other laid down criteria, the moderator came up with the final 10. However, the management of Nigerian Breweries Plc, through their representatives at the event, communicated to the moderator on stage, to keep hope alive for the 8 others who had failed to make the final list. The moderator announced that, in the spirit of the 40 year anniversary of the Gulder in Nigeria, being celebrated this year, the owners of the brand has decided to increase the number to 12, instead of the traditional 10 that usually made it to the jungle for the search.
The last man standing will go home with a cash prize of N7Million, an SUV worth N10Million, and N500, 000 wardrobe allowance; while others will go home with consolation cash prizes ranging from N450, 000 to N2.5million.
