GUS Viewers Anticipate Return of Evicted Contestant With Boomerang to Camp

By Dipo Olowookere

Viewers of the ongoing Gulder Ultimate Search (GUS) season 12 are looking forward to when they would have the rare opportunity to vote to return an evicted contestant with boomerang back to the Amorokin Camp.

This edition of the show gave GUS viewers the avenue to return one contestant back to the television reality series to partake in the search of Akolo’s chest, which was lost a long time ago.

It was a twist introduced in the GUS Age of Craftsmanship, with boomerangs scattered around the jungle, allowing contenders who find any of them and are evicted to have the opportunity to return to the show with the support of viewers.

Among those who have been evicted so far, Esitima, Tosin and Osas have boomerangs and have the opportunity to return to the jungle. Viewers would be able to vote for one person that would return to Amorokin camp to fight for the N50 million prize.

Before now, evictions marked the total end of the road contestants until the introduction of the boomerang, which the host, Toke Makinwa, informed the warriors of.

Last week, Yankari and Esitima were evicted from the show, leaving only five in the jungle.

Esitima, who found three boomerangs during her stay at the camp, but had to let go of two, has the opportunity to return if voted by viewers.

With less than two weeks left to end the programme, one question of the lips of viewers is; when will we have the opportunity to vote one of our favourite evicted contestants back to Amoroki camp? This is left for the organisers to answer.

But the show producers have promised that viewers will surely have the opportunity to vote back their favourite warrior when voting is open and the contender with the highest votes will return to the jungle to participate in the final task in the search for Akolo’s chest.

More than 20,000 Nigerians applied for the Gulder Ultimate Search Season 12 Age of Craftsmanship and after a regional selection process followed by a two-day trip to the Sea School, the number was pruned to just 18, who made it into the jungle and were divided into three clans of Amo, Irin and Iroko.
