Popular Nigerian actor, director, and producer Bob-Manuel Udokwu is not the Anchor for this year's Gulder Ultimate Search. He has explained the reason for his exclusion.
The reality TV show is set to commence this Saturday, October 16, 2021, and will run until December 19, when the grand finale will hold.
The actor revealed this while having a chat with a famous celebrity blog, the Whistler.
Udokwu explained that he anchored the programme for five different seasons, making him the longest anchorman of the show.
He said, "You mentioned that I'm always involved in Gulder Ultimate Search but not in this year's show. Let set the record straight. GUS started in 2004.
"I became the Anchor of the show in Season 4 in 2007 and anchored it for 5 out of a total of 10 years. (2004 – 2013), thus making me the longest anchorman of the show. The show is coming back this year after seven years break."
According to him, the show's organizers this year decided to make some changes in the presentation of the show by introducing a Task Master along with the Anchor. Bob, however, stated that despite not being an anchor, he would be making celebrity appearances.

"I am playing non of the roles above, but I will be making celebrity appearances in this year's show as a mark of honour. So, I'm not totally out of Gulder Ultimate Search."
