Genevieve Nnaji hosts as 10 Celebs battle for the 7 Million Naira Gulder Ultimate Search Celebrity Showdown Prize



GULDER ULTIMATE SEARCH_celebsThe reality show, Gulder Ultimate Search has enjoyed a successful run for the last few years. In an ingenious twist, the new season of the show features a new focus – Celebrities!

  • Funke Akindele
  • Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha
  • Emeka Ike
  • Muma Gee
  • Daddy Showkey
  • Bob Manuel Udokwu
  • Obesere
  • Princess
  • Dare Art Alade
  • Weird MC

The 10 celebrities have been sent to the ‘jungle’ (In reality, the show is actually based at the La Champagne Tropicana Resort) to battle it out for the prize. Last week, we were introduced to the show and last night, we enjoyed the first ‘real’ episode.

This is no cake walk! The celebrities were put through some tasks and finally had to fend for themselves by assembling their own tents and making their food on a makeshift firewood stove. Based on this episode, the season is definitely going to be an interesting ride. The male contestants seem to be getting along and Bob Manuel seems to have taken a natural leadership position. Things are not as rosy with the women as there was constant bickering between the female contestants and musician, Muma Gee.

We’ll have to keep watching to see what happens next.

Are you watching? Let us know what you think and who is your favourite celebrity so far.

Check out some behind the scenes shots of the host, Genevieve Nnaji

    It was an interesting first episode…no doubt. My favorite male contestant might be Daddy showkey for now…and female might be…dunno…they are all acting so immature. We’re in for some fun i can tell.

    I think i now understand why Nigerian Senators used to throw chairs back in the days, i mean, just imagine the tension and anger flying around after only a few hours of staying together, could it be that they all feel more important than each other…. beats me!

    Anyway, i think their bickering will add spice to the whole show. Dare
    has been so matured, Weird Mc too, wots wit Muma Gee? Didnt know Chioma was that outspoken! Bob shld be careful least he gets burned by the self-imposed leadership role!

    Show airs between 9-10 pm on STV, other stations show the same episode later from 10-11pm 11-12pm (NTA). Interesting first show. The bickerings from the ladies made it even more interesting. Guess the most matured lady is Weird MC and Bob is a clear leader. Emeka Ike did not surprise me, with his attitude and wanting to sleep in the ladies corner. Then he went on to tell Princess not to touch him as he is a married man (lol). Can’t wait for the next show.

    A very interesting show indeed. Weeee——men….so petty but my favorite celebrity for now is ..give it up for “Weird MC”..cos of her maturity role in the whole drama that ensued amongst the women……

    Nice concept. I hope it does not turn out razz as most Nigerian reality shows

    obesere ,daddy showkey and bob,are sooo real..i think dare is too tush,lol.
    But i dont understand y everybody is agianst mumagee ,am not her fan,but i think chioma took it too far by flinging her stuff out,overall,i love all of em

  12. bukky

    March 29, 2010 at 1:10 pm

    Daddy showkey for president,…ejooooooooo

  13. magnetic

    March 29, 2010 at 2:31 pm

    Muma gee did not wrong,just cos she was happy her idea hepled solve the puzzle chioma and that bicthy funke couldn’t get over the fact that muma might just be smarter than they are….as for the girls corner who made it so and i didnt see muma bring his things over he brought them himself!

  14. Obi-talk

    March 29, 2010 at 4:31 pm

    this looks interesting. heard they are not showing it on hitv though so I wonder how me or my friends is going to follow all of it. Ytube I guess except by some miracle it comes on hitv. Genev… is hosting it, lol she shud be in the show rather than hosting it but I guess this the first time a woman is hosting it, right? not sure now.

    There will be a lot of in jungle fighting, yeah!, I wonder if the tasks will be hard core like ‘am a celebrity get me outta…’. this is the path to Nigeria’s celebrity BBbro… the line up looks like lots of drama to expect in the camp.

    Vital info was not given in this article!!! When and where so they show it??? How are we supposed to watch it when we dont know when it is?? Anyways I happened to catch the first episode by mistake sef! It was filled with Drama!!!! Mehn I think Dare might win just cos he is the quietest then again its the audience that votes right? Oh well time will tell….

  16. Funmilola

    March 29, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    ..God.. was really pissed bout Funke n Princess’s attitude.. Even if Emeka wants to sleep at d girlz corner(which is wrong), should they have to behave so immatured and make so much noise bout it? Think the Jenifa thing got into Funke’s head and she has been very lousy since she gained recognition from the film…Funke: try to manage your stardom…..

  17. Qees

    March 29, 2010 at 10:41 pm

    awww… I’m missing! does anyone know if they show it on Ben Tv, ITV, comedy central, virgin or maybe BBC… hehehe

  21. Bimby

    March 30, 2010 at 2:32 pm

    Gosh……..i feel highly disappointed in the way those girls (Funke,Princess and Chioma) behave i thot they are more mature and responsible than what they are displaying……uh i forget this is not script it is reality so they are showing who they are for real.Chioma,i thot you are reserved but you proved otherwise with your behavior. I find it hard to believe that Funke will open her mouth to say she has not heard abt Muma Gee before common girlfriend why the bevy.Haba,is not a crime she is more intelligent than you.

    March 31, 2010 at 3:27 am

    LOL!!! its great to see the true colors of these “celebrities” come out.
    its like “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Jere” type of thing, mixed with Survivor (although they aren’t really in the jungle, but its naija so thats understandable, working with what they’ve got!)
    i really wish i could watch it though and see Genny, my favorite.
    she is the baddest, look at her. 🙂
    dang, i wanna see nollywood stars in action and this Emeka Ike and Muma Gee everyone is talking about so far. 🙁
    anyway someone could please upload these episodes onto youtube or something!! PLEASE!


    March 31, 2010 at 3:31 am

    RAZZNESS of the higest order LWKMD. I am embarrassed. Only DAREY manages to stand out as a celebrity. Everybody else ?

  27. Truth

    March 31, 2010 at 12:47 pm

    There is a difference between acting and real life. Why would you think Chioma is reserved, have you ever met her. Just shows that many of you cannot separate fantasy from reality. Meanwhile, a lot of people do not know Muma Gee in Nigeria.

    March 31, 2010 at 2:17 pm

    woah,we need not exibit our animalistic tendecies in other to be real, you can be real by being lady like, gentle, very respectful and tidy. am so shocked about the attitude exibited by some of the female “celebrities’ is sad. what will they pass on to their kids,… thuggery, you guess is as good as mine.

  29. deee

    March 31, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    it was funny die. muma gee deserved wt she got as she started d whole bruhaha first. then she got a taste of her own medicine and could not take the heat. i love love love the show. i am not disappointed in anyine of dem, just enjoying d show. meanwhile, mumagee aint dt big a celebrity, so funke is right by saying she has neva heard of her.

    dont say that muma started it all and she got what she deserved and beside the show just started so you cant say who is intelligent.

    April 27, 2010 at 3:11 pm

    i love what you guys are doing, infarct this happen to be my best TV show,
    I love the Genevieve Nnaji presentation, for now Wield MC,Bob Manuel
    Udokwu, Emeka Ike, and Muma Gee remain my best celebrity. one love to
    Daddy Showkey.

    April 29, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    The show is really very interesting. I ve never been a fan of Muma gee but I am
    impressed with the way she handles the nagging Chioma. I guesss Chioma
    has other things against Muma gee. Bob Manuel failed me by crashing out on
    a puzzle contest. the show is an eye-opener

  40. ayobami

    April 29, 2010 at 6:04 pm

    the celebrity showdawn is very fun to watch actually , nevertheless i do not appreciate
    it in the sense that , the show and the whole is to give people that are less
    priviledge opportunity to make it and prooof themself, but now it the people
    that are rich gulder still want to enrich.

  41. adetutu

    April 30, 2010 at 10:32 am

    i appreciate if Muma Gee will respect her sef&behavewil lyk a lady4once.she is a disgare2 wonahood.

  42. hannah

    May 1, 2010 at 10:18 pm

    hey u guys should take it easy on the women especially chioma!!!!!! haba! what if they were given a script to interprete on the show? y do u think they went to a resort and not a proper jungle? make una dey think na!! what if the twist is the chioma should nag cos in all her movies she ia always cryn? asides that look closely at muma when next u watch and she that she is playing for camera…she isnt real. remember d episode they all gathered for reconciliation, where muma wanted to give chioma a hug, it looked fake to me so u guys shouldnt be harsh on dem gals cos i dont think they all r mad at the same time as to be upset wiv muma gee.

  43. lady Belle

    May 7, 2010 at 12:07 pm

    I really lv the show, but they should act mature. Even if its not a script, At least they are all aware that they’ve got viewers all ova naija.

  44. lady Belle

    May 7, 2010 at 12:10 pm

    i hope they’ll do better in the next episode, i guess its today, abi ?

    i blv in people and poeple oriented project. this particular project could have bn tailored to the unknown nigerians who are supposed to be part of the industry not some money-full-bags who think of themselves alone. what do they need the money for.Dn’t gt me wrong i blv the bible portion that says more will b added to those that have bt the bible doesn’t said to those who doesn’t deserve it. All the celebrities are playing their part mechanically if not electrically. and to my greatest surprise, i never, Chioma behaved in a manner that i called Belittle, i dn’t think the 2 children she’s bragging abt will desend so low to act what their mama acted. well script, Chioma bt remember, the fact you are married does not mean Muma will not and as it is well to you 2day, muma gee’s marriage myt be weller and better. Go back to the classroom and learn some enthics for your childrens’ sake.who do you think you are. ‘a happily married actress”
