As the regional selection for the survival reality TV show, Gulder Ultimate Search (GUS), kicks off this week, Nigerian Breweries Plc (NB), has assured the safety of participants for the new season.
With the reality show involving mostly outdoor activities, the organizers in a statement disclosed that high-tech security agencies are deployed.
“We have the full complement of all private, public and high tech security agencies who have been mobilized to keep the facility impenetrable and protect the lives and properties of contestants and crew members. The entire sites are fully equipped with an all-around armed team monitoring the CCTV footage round the clock.”
The statement added that Covid-19 protocols and guidelines will be strictly adhered to.
“We are working with the full Nigerian Breweries’ Plc. medical team, as well as top medical consultants who have set the medical and Covid-19 protocol guide to be used during the regional selections, the filming in the jungle and also for the entire GUS and NB crew.”
The show is coming back after a five-year hiatus with the theme ‘The Age of Craftsmanship’. According to the organizers, the edition is specifically for individuals who have “a curious mind, are continually searching for answers beyond set boundaries, and are willing to try new things and enjoy every moment.”
Registration began on September 1 and closed on September 10. The regional selection will take place in three cities: Abuja (September 14-15); Enugu (September 15-16); and Lagos (September 16-17).
The ultimate winner of the season will be walking away with over N50 million worth of prizes.
Gulder Ultimate Search, which borders on the survival instincts of contestants, began in 2004 and ran for 11 seasons before going off-air in 2014.
On Wednesday, September 1, 2021, Nigerian Breweries announced that the show is making its comeback with “The Age of Craftsmanship” as the theme of the 2021 edition.
