Let's End This Once And For All: BB Naija Or Gulder Ultimate Search? Which is More Entertaining?

It is almost impossible to hear of someone, especially a Nigerian talk against Big Brother Nigeria and not mention Gulder Ultimate Search. While the latter has stopped airing and the former is currently on air with their 5 season, the paths of these shows cross whenever an argument in regards to morals and ethics learn from TV shows in Nigeria is being brought up.

Before we proceed, lets take a look these TV shows and what they are about.

Gulder Ultimate Search (also called GUS) is a Nigerian reality television series, created and sponsored by Nigerian Breweries Plc to promote the Gulder Lager Beer. Its first season premiered in 2004.

The Gulder Ultimate Search series is also the very first 100% local content reality television programme in Nigeria and it is a survival type reality programme that highlights the struggle of Contestants (10–30 persons, depending on the reference edition), their struggles against themselves and the wild, that is nature, and their search for a hidden treasure that brings to the last person standing instant fame and fortune.

It was a popular show amongst Nigerian household, second only to Super Story by Wale Adenuga.

Contestants had to go through numerous ordeals that were treacherous, dangerous and hard.

While the Big Brother Naija Show formerly known as Big Brother Nigeria, is a Nigerian reality competition television series, based on the Big Brother television franchise, in which 12 to 21 contestants live in an isolated house and compete for a large cash prize worth $171,428.57 equivalent to 60,000,000 Nigerian Naira, and other material gifts, at the end of the show by avoiding being evicted from the house by viewers.

Here housemates have to learn how to do habit with each other and also face challenges and tasks set by the big brother.

The difference is that whilst one of these shows aims at bringing out the toughness in Nigerians and teaching them how to survive in the hardest of time and harshest of conditions, the other tends to work on our interactions with people and how smart and talented we all can be if given the opportunity.

Although they're both great shows, GUS have stopped airing due to unforeseen circumstances while Big brother Naija is waxing stronger and stronger amidst calls from Clerics that is should be banned.

It is said that the Big brother show promotes indecency and that the housemates often engage in romantic affairs, While Gulder Ultimate search is so tough someone drowned in 2007 while the show was ongoing. However, this hasn't deterred fans who can be seen vouching for both shows whenever matters concerning them arise.
