Multichoice has unveiled another brand new reality TV show, Ultimate Love Nigeria to keep you lovers of reality tv shows glued to your screens.
- Reality TV show format created by MultiChoice in Nigeria for intending Nigerians looking to find love.
- Show to air 2020 from February 9 for a period of eight weeks on DStv Channel 198
A first-of-its-kind reality TV show format, Ultimate Love is centred around single male and female strangers living together in an isolated location with the hopes of finding life-long love.
They are paired based on their mutual attraction to one another as they compete to emerge the ultimate couple of the competition. The winning couple is rewarded with a lavish traditional wedding ceremony, a fully furnished home, cash amongst other prizes.
The couples, who are continuously monitored by live television cameras and personal audio microphones, will interact daily with a counsellor fondly referred to as ‘Auntie’ (just like Big Brother) as they embark on their journey to love.
Just like Big Brother, Auntie will also be a prominent feature on the show but unlike the former who is recognized by his voice only, Aunty will be physically present in the ‘Love Pad’. Her job will be to help the singles find their perfect partner and provide them with counsel where necessary. Already, this pivotal character has left soon-to-be fans of the show guessing who would play the role of Auntie. Perhaps, she will be revealed at the launch on Sunday.
The Chief Executive Officer of MultiChoice Nigeria, John Ugbe said: “Reality TV shows are immensely popular because they showcase real people experiencing real-life happenings and situations, thus connecting with viewers and fans on a personal and relatable level. There are fewer things more real than love, and Ultimate Love, our new and exciting reality show celebrates this.”
“We are excited to have developed this new reality TV format which further reiterates our position as Africa’s biggest storyteller and custodians of premium and quality entertainment in Africa. Our viewers can expect the very best production values and a show experience unlike anything ever seen on African television,” he added.
For this first season, a total of 16 individuals comprising 8 males and 8 females have been selected through careful auditions and screenings to live together for 8 weeks. They will engage in a series of locally inspired activities as couples with viewers voting off their least favourite couple on a weekly basis.
