The 2021 edition of the Gulder Ultimate Search kicked off in October, and it is not the same as it used to be according to fans.

Ladipo continued by revealing that the show lacks factors that would originally keep Nigerians glued to their TV set.
"People are not watching GUS because there's no sex, love, drama (that involves sex/love and awwn). You people should let baby girl for life drink water and drop cup naaa."
See the post below:
"Defend Toke but don’t say people are not watching GUS coz of the absence of romance and blah...GUS organizers need to realize that this is 2021 not 2010, there’s a lot of distraction in Nigeria right now both online and offline, come up with something relatable, captivating and suspense filled, then you’ll get people’s attention."
"We used to watch GUS before now, the show lacks popularity it was not well promoted and it lacks content etc."
"They need to get a stable channel like Bbn not this one they are doing like soap opera."
"The truth is the show has started losing its content from the last season."
"People watch BBN because it’s a 24hours show, GUS we need to wait till weekend to watch clips for an hour. This alone makes it tiring so just rest your case."
Toke replies fan who says she's negative influence on GUS
A fan of Gulder Ultimate Search questioned the choice of Toke Makinwa as the host of the reality show on social media.
The aggrieved fan maintained that viewers lost interest the moment the OAP was announced as the show host and likened her appointment with getting someone like Frank Edoho to host a beauty pageant.
The media personality responded to the allegations in a lengthy post that she would have ignored a comment like this but the human in her forced her to respond to the troll.
