Tobechukwu Okoye and Opeyemi Samuel Ishmael have become the seventh and eight contestants to be evicted from the 2021 Gulder Ultimate Search (GUS).
The duo were sent packing from the survival reality show on Saturday night after a tensed individual challenge at the place of the talking drum following Irin and iroko clan abysmal performance during the day’s task.
This comes after Orevaoghene Oboh and Iniabasi Eme Umoren became the sixth and fifth contestants to be evicted respectively — about the same time Emmanuel Ifeanyi Nnebe was ousted.
The trio of Olayinka Omoya, Mfon Mikel, and Gerald Odeka were earlier also sent packing from the survival show on November 1.
With the latest eviction, there are 10 contestants left in the race for the show’s N50 million grand prize.
After weeks of dueling as clans, the contestants of the ongoing Gulder Ultimate Search will begin to compete as individuals from today. The anchor Toke Makinwa informed them in the 11th episode.
However, there is a twist. According to Toke Makinwa, a new element, boomerang, is introduced. The council of elders have hidden boomerangs all around the jungle. These boomerangs signify a second chance for the contestants, and anyone who finds them must report it at the place of the talking drum.
It also allows them to be voted back into the show if they are evicted. Osasere of the Amo Clan is the first to find the boomerang, followed by Estima and Damola of Irin and Amo clan respectively.
