Multichoice on Sunday launched a new reality TV show called “The Ultimate Love”. The show wants to help the contestants find the love of their life.
Contestants on the show are called love guest and their home is called the love pad. The contestants are 16 in number:8 men and 8 women on a journey to find true love.
The show is definitely a breath of fresh air away from the toxic energy fans of BBNaija have started to give the show. Ultimate love is bringing something different to the table, helping young people find their true love and life partner.
The show will not only help the contestants but also viewers who will watch the show has they would learn a thing or two they can apply in their relationships. Adesuwa Onyenokwe who plays “Aunty” on the show will help the contestants and viewers find meaning to their relationships and love life with her wealth of experience on marriage, love and relationships.
The ultimate love show will be the first reality TV show on love in Nigeria. The show will involve the pairing of the housemates. Now the question is how will the pairings work? What will determine if the pairs are perfect for each other? Will it be based on just their interaction with each other and task or will there be another way to determine the pairs.
The show will involve evictions and voting to determine who stays or leave the Love Pad. The votes will also determine which couple will emerge as overall winners on the show. Is it possible that some couples might fake their love and be unnecessarily dramatic just to gather fans and vote. Some couples will do anything to be part of the weekly highlights.
When the winning couple emerges at the end of the show, how sure are we that their love is real and they are not faking it for the cameras or for the money?.
This is the show’s maiden edition and it is only a few days in so it is safe to say, that only time will tell how the show goes.
