Feminists are quick to assert that what a man can do, a woman can do even better. But with the exit of Weird MC in the on going must-watch weekly reality TV show: Gulder Ultimate Search Celebrity Showdown, the tribe of women in the camp is completely extinct, leaving the men to vie for the ultimate diadem.
The same pattern has also played out in the regular Gulder Ultimate Search which has not produced a lady winner since it made its debut six years ago. Is it then a menâ€™s affair?
Though critics are wont to argue that some of the tasks in the programme do not favour the female participants, such argument is far_fetched because the tasks involve more of endurance and intelligence than sheer power. Otherwise, Weird MC cannot be said to be more powerful than Obesere and Bob Manuel â€“Udokwu who had long been evicted from the GUS Celebrity House.
Indeed, Weird MC, the last woman standing, showed that she is made of sterner stuff, holding her own where her other female colleagues faltered. She was quite outstanding in the tasks but was well detached from the bitter spills among some of the celebrities majorly between Chioma and Muma Gee.
With the final weeks being a three horse race among Emeka Ike, Daddy Showkey and Dare Art_Alade, viewers are already predicting the likely winner of the very popular â€˜Sunday _Sunday tonicâ€™. In homes, offices, buses and beer parlours, the discussions are continuing on the likely winner of the median GUS Celebrity Showdown.
Whatever, the coming weeks hope to bring out the best in the three remaining celebrities. With two musicians and one actor left, will there be a gang up? But in a winner takes all event like the GUS Celebrity Showdown such occurrence is unlikely. Viewers are in for great fun as the programmes grinds to an exciting end.
