24-year-old Chinedu Ubachukwu has emerged winner of this year’s edition of Gulder Ultimate Search (GUS).
The reality TV show, which ended last night was the 11th edition.
Ubachukwu and 13 others were in the Aguleri jungle in Anambra State for 26 days in contest on who becomes the ultimate winner.
A graduate of Petroleum and Gas Engineering from the University of Port Harcourt, Ubachukwu, who hails from Anambra State, beat co-finalists, Emmanuel Afolabi and Nne Cosy Joe, to discover the mythical General’s Helmet, a symbol of this year’s search, aptly tagged The Mission.
The other two warriors failed in their bids to get to the mysterious destination across the the heavy currents of Aguleri River. With this achievement, the native of Anambra State will exchange the treasure for a whopping N10million and a brand new SUV.
As soon as Chinedu located & retrieved the General’s War Helmet, anchorman Chidi Mokeme inducted him into the exclusive Order of Heroes as the 11th “Ultimate Man”.
