Sea school training for 30 Gulder Ultimate Search hopefuls


Leeway has come the way of 30 aspirants, out of thousands that applied for this year’s edition of the popular Gulder Ultimate Search reality show.

As part of the prerequisites for selecting the finalists, a swimming fest is expected to confirm the applicants’ eligibility for the tough terrains of the show, which may contain waters, hills and rocks.

Organisers say those shortlisted for the next stage had passed the rigorous physical and swimming exercises, as well as interviews and medical examinations, and have been invited to Lagos to undergo further screening at the Lagos Leadership and Training School, otherwise called Sea School.

The show, which enters its 11th edition this year, draws the 30 contestants from regional auditions which took place in Lagos, Benin, Awka and Port Harcourt.

The build-up to Gulder Ultimate Search 11, has witnessed many changes; which Onyeka Okoli, Senior Brand Manager, Gulder – Nigerian Breweries Plc., said is geared towards giving TV audiences a great viewing experience.

Interestingly, a new element in Gulder Ultimate Search 11 is the return of the Sea School exercise regimen, as there are indications that Aguleri, the choice site for the next show, is a riverine community in Anambra State.

Priding itself as Nigeria’s first and longest running reality TV programme, the Sea School exercise regimen is expected to run from August 27 to 29.

Okoli said: “We promised the ardent viewers and fans of Gulder Ultimate Search that this year’s edition would be different from that of previous seasons. We have managed to spring quite a few surprises such as the new rigorous exercise regimes at the regional selections with the latest being the re-introduction of the Sea School training. Our viewers and the contestants should prepare for a life time experience. GUS will still spring a few more surprises. I can only urge the viewing public to stay tuned and expect the unexpected.”
