At the beginning of the year, if anybody had told Michael Nwachukwu that he would become a millionaire in 2008, he might have dismissed it as a dream.
But the twenty-six-year-old Nwachukwu, last night, became a millionaire. The young man is smiling home with N7 million after emerging the winner of the fifth edition of the Gulder Ultimate Search TV reality show.
Not many had reckoned he would be the last man standing as numerous observers had tipped Frank Adamu for the crown on account of the confidence he radiated.
In fact, Frank was the first man to get to the treasure, but in what appears to be a recurring trend in all editions of the GUS where the first man to get to the treasure never finds it, Michael beat Frank to find the “Lost Chronicle”.
In the gruelling search, the cool, calm and calculating six feet, seven inches tall Michael came from behind to pick the much sought item hidden in the bowels of Agwu Hills
And now, as the last man standing, Michael will exchange the treasure for N7 million, a brand new SUV and a N500,000 wardrobe allowance. Michael joins the past winners - Ezeugo Egwuagu, Lucan Chambalis, Hector Jobarteh and Dominic Mudabai – to become an ultimate man.
