Lagos, Nigeria; 18 November 2019: MultiChoice Nigeria has announced the launch of a brand-new reality TV show titled ‘Ultimate Love’ and is calling for auditions this November. The show will air live, 24/7 on all DStv and select GOtv packages starting February 2020.
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 other 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 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’ as they embark on their journey to love.
Chief Executive Officer, 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 will be 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.
