After 21 days of rigorous tasks and adventure, Uche Uwaezeapu grabbed the ‘Horn of Valour’ as he claimed the title of Gulder Ultimate Man VI. Given what he has been through in the last few weeks, he is bound to be sore and exhausted but what better way to revitalize him than to receive his bumper winner’s prize package – N7 million cash, an SUV worth about N10 million, N500,000 wardrobe allowance and other benefits. Uche will now follow in the footsteps of his predecessors and represent the brand as the face of Gulder Lager for the next 12 months.
Over 15, 000 people registered to audition for GUS VI across the country. 8, 304 qualified for the regional selection, however, only 108 were successful. After the regional auditions, 36 contestants were qualified for the screening at the Sea School in Lagos. After that stage, 10 young men and women were chosen to embark on the Gulder Ultimate Search VI adventure.
Melvin Oduah, Adaeze Nwogu, Chisom Egemasi, Debra Omekhigien, Vivian Okafor, Elvis Abogu, Olawale Akanbi, Uche Nwaezeakpu, Chuks Okorji and Oseyiomon Okoh emerged as the final 10 – they then proceeded to the fabled Omodo Forest in search of The Horn of Valour.
They were eliminuated one by one and finally only 3 remained in contention – Chisom Eluma, Melvin Oduah and Uche Uwaezeapu. It was a tough battle but Uche won! Congrats. Looking forward to the future, we hope that a women finally clinched the horn in season VII.
