GUS 7: Harvest of evictions
The 2010 edition of Nigeria's most watched and globally rated best television reality show, The Gulder Ultimate Search 7 is beginning to yield unexpected results.
The unfolding scenarios have not only proved media entertainment pundits wrong, global audience of the programme are daily biting their tongues over the sequence of evictions that have proved unpredictably exciting.

The 27 year old Kogi state born basketball player was the most loved member of the camp. She was nicknamed Mama Jungle because of the motherly role she took up in the camp, caring for the welfare of all her camp_mates.
Her eviction was so painful to the other contestants that after her exit, they decided to immortalize her with a bamboo seat specially constructed and named after her
