Tobechukwu Okoye has become the seventh contestant to be evicted from the 2021 Gulder Ultimate Search (GUS).
The 26-year-old student was sent packing from the survival reality show on Saturday night.
Organisers of the show announced Okoye’s eviction in a post via its Instagram page.
“@official_tobei the cruise warrior who showed much of his fun side while in the jungle sadly gets evicted as his journey in the jungle comes to an end,” it read.
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 11 contestants left in the race for the show’s N50 million grand prize.
The GUS premiered in 2004 and is currently in its 12th season. This year’s edition of the show is tagged ‘The Age of Craftsmanship’ and involves a total of 18 contestants.
Initially, 16 contestants were unveiled by Gideon Okeke, the unveiling show host, but in a new twist, two other contestants were added as wildcards.
The contestants — camped in a jungle — are expected to compete against each other and the wild in quest of a secret treasure that would offer fame and wealth to the last person standing.
