There are only a few hours until Gulder Ultimate Search crowns the 12th Ultimate Man.


As GUS Season 12 gradually winds up, we’ve seen tremendous talents among the 18 contestants who went into the jungle in October 2021 before they were whittled down to four finalists.

Undoubtedly, the survival reality show has uncovered some of the Nigerian creative industry’s finest talents since it first premiered in 2004. As we anticipate the finale on Sunday, December 26, 2021, where we will find out the new champion joining the list of GUS stars, we take a look at what these stars have been doing since their series ended.
