AFTER a gruelling contest that saw many tough contenders falling by the way, Paschal Eronmose on Fridday emerged the winner of Gulder Ultimate Search 9. He thus becomes the 9th champion of Nigeria’s first 100 per cent local content reality TV show. He narrowly edged out Onyinye Udodi, the last female contestant standing. The competition has never been won by a female since inception in 2004.
On the last day of the competition, four contestants remained. They were Paschal, Onyinye, James Adah and Nuhu Zigwayi. The hunt for the treasure started in the morning when all four, who had spent the night at an old oil mill, were directed to assemble at the mouth of an old fire bridge. After travelling for hours, they arrived at the location where they were subjected to their first challenge.
For his feat, Paschal will cart home the N9 million grand prize, N500,000 swagger allowance and a brand new 2012 SUV. He will be formally presented with his prizes later today at the Le Meridien Hotel, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State at the reveal party. Governor Godswill Akpabio is expected to be the special guest of honour. Onyinye however gets the sum of N4 million as total prize money – made up of N3 million for emerging second placed contestant and N1 million for emerging Gulder Ultimate Search last female contestant standing.
Other contestants who had earlier been evicted on the programme were: Uzor Osimpka, Ifet Iniobong, Priscillia Ezeh, Michael Ogbuefi, Patience Bornford, Ujam Emmanuel, Ayo Ojueromi and KofyaBrown.
