Was Toke Makinwa the reason why most people didn't watch the recently concluded Gulder Ultimate Search TV show...

Maybe, the organizers need to either bring back Chidi Mokeme or hire Frank Edoho to replace Toke Makinwa

A lot of people didn't watch nor follow the show at all... They didn't even know the show was still on, until the winner was announced on social media...

No it flopped because there was no nudity or plenty sex scenes for the viewers just like BBN

It’s improper using a woman to anchor the show


An Alpha male would have been better.



And again no Nudity , Nigerian youths won’t bother



Make Gulder allow them de lash themselves once once , the show go booom once embarassed

Nope I don't think so.
I think the show out lived its relevance.

Back then when it was popular it aired on local tv and was easily accessible.

Now local TV is a thing of the past Ultimate Search doesn't really appeal to audiences now there is multiple contents to choose from.

Also d show never really had a dedicated channel.

No be her fault say the show no blow. Number one reason why the show no blow na because say dem no dey fvck for the show. See eeh, evil things dey sell pass good things by far nowadays. If dem put an embargo on sex for BBnaija, the show go drop drastically. The average Nigerian na hypocrite. We go bash people wey dey fvck or showcase body for national TV but we go always watch the show for secret and even vote sef. If u dey patronize porn sites, if you see the traffic wey those porn sites dey generate for 9ja alone, you go shock. Both Christians, Muslims, pagans, atheists etc na dey watch those evil programs ooooo. So now you see why BBN and other immoral shows go get higher traffic than a decent and godly show. U don ask yourself why our female celebs dey always buy house and the male still dey drive Peugeot 504? My dear, na because dem get the sex to offer. I wan even create a porn web and mobile app sef. Since my fellow Christians no go patronize my christian app, I have to follow the trend and jump into the moving train. A girl wey naked for FB would get 1000 LIKES in a second but you wey dress decent go even tag 100 people and still get just 12 LIKES. So the lady is not to blame for the poor audience of the show. The organizers are even wise for choosing her because dem know say an HOElosho alumni like her go bring more traffic. But unfortunately, dem no dey fvck for the show, so the show no go make wave.

Thank You@Motionarena!

See those peeps up there Trying to Scapegoat Toke Makinwa as being Responsible for the Calamitous Flopping of GUS! sad undecided

The Show failed simply because It has OUTLIVED it's relevance! sad

The current Generation needs Excitement, Glamour, Gossips, etc...not some Grab, Forest shows!
Instagram, Whatsapp, Tik Tok videos have taken over Everywhere and you want Pple to be following a Show where Contestants use Firewood to cook Oil rice and Sleep inside Mosquito Net?

This is 2021, not 2010! sad

because of Bbnaija Critics, The Ill-prepared Organizers hurriedly came back with the Show!
The way they would be Crying now Over their Loss ehn! embarassed cry cry

The show is supposed to showcase survival instincts of participants in the jungle and not fake displays which Toke represents.
The organisers messed up big time, the show required tough looking personalities like Gentle Jack or Chidi Mokeme or Segun Arinze

yes for me...nothing concern toke n GUS...a chidi mokeme would av kept me following d show bcoz d gee gat action n seriousness but
me checking n seeing toke just look asif the show na drama
also the idea of weekly airing of the show didnt help...
last n most importantly, the local channels showing the likes of maltina dance hall, GUS, super story, papa ajasco, mtn project fame, star quest etc helped It to trend in the whole of naija unlike now dt these local channels are dead

YES and YES and YES

GUS is a show that is all about toughness,intelligence, and stamina and not a show for Sisi Toke or girly stuffs.... Toke lacks that tough demeanour .....

You have pure tough Nollywood Actors who would have done and dusted the part !!!... Let me mentions small names

Sam Dede

Junior pope

Sylvester Madi

Jerry Amilo

Chidi Mokeme

Zubi .... (EZE NDI ARA)

To me her anchoring the show just made it less appealing ... If they even wanted to use a female I would have preferred Sola Sobowale to her sef or even Mama G!!!!(that's some tough alpha female to me).

Ibo people don start again for 2022. Always attacking anyone Yoruba.

Everyone knows Gulder Ultimate Search is no longer appealing to most people. Even the frequency of broadcast made it more like a soap opera. The organisers really need to spice things up. It is not big brother and will never be. What people demand now is different especially the ladies.

So stop blaming Toke.

It's not her fault. Hypocrites Nigerians prefer nudity and pornhub reality shows than intellectual and educative reality shows.

My first post of the year grin

I think these 3 factors contributed to it.

1. Nigerians are soft porn loving hypocrites. They clamoured for the return of the show but deeply were not truly interested. No sex scenes in shows like GUS.


2. Naija has advanced beyond showing highlights of programmes on weekends. GUS seem to be stucked in the past Gone are those days.


3. Anchor... Toke is a great presenter. The only problem is her personality isn't in sync with what we expect from GUS show. She's better off presenting BBNaija and other love/romance shows.

She was talking too much on TWITTER.
She was basically distracted by her online fame.
She was more interested in ensuring she satisfied her Online Fans than the game itself.
She turned it into a Fashion show.
She completely lacked the pedigree to pilot such.
Again, When was the 1st & Last time she consumed GULDER?

I would say she was partly the reason. The show flopped for these reasons:

Firstly, a show like that requires a host with lots of charisma and charm which Toke doesn’t possess.

Secondly, the publicity was very poor and it was as if much preparations didn’t go into the show.

Thirdly, they should have aired on mainstream channels like DStv, and even NTA like they used to.

If there is going to be another show this year, it will be best to have someone like Chidi Mokeme, IK of big brother Africa or someone else who isn’t Toke to anchor it.

I have said it before and I’m saying it again, Toke has no business being on TV. She is very annoying and one can easily lose interest in her conversations.

She is also very superficial and it will take another superficial man to tolerate her in a relationship. Women like her got nothing to offer.

Yes. GUS is not for people to come and form slay queens, it's a survival-of-the-fittest kind of show, that takes place in the jungle.
Bob-Manuel is still the best man for the job.

Indeed! Her performance was great as co-anchor but her past controversial lifestyle just couldn't be overlooked
