Ultimate Love Reality Show: Fans Eager For Answers From Show Organisers

Ultimate Love, Nigeria’s first love reality TV show, which kicked off on Sunday, February 9, 2020, has left some viewers confused about the dynamics of the show. The show, which centres on finding love, will project 16 housemates, consisting single men and women, living together in the ‘Love Residence’ for eight weeks.

These ‘Love Guests’ as they are called, are expected to find love during the show after which the winner will be rewarded with five million Naira, a house, and a sponsored traditional wedding. However, the organizers of the show failed to provide straightforward answers to some troubling questions viewers are bothered about.

1. Is the Ultimate Love reality show here to replace the popular Big Brother Naija reality show? Since nothing has been heard from the organizers of the annual Big Brother Naija reality television on whether it will hold in 2020, Nigerians are now wondering if the Ultimate Love show is here to take the place of the BBN. Some have even described the new show as a low budget BBN.

2. Since there are sixteen love guests in the house, how are the love birds expected to emerge at the end? What is the method of eviction adopted if there is any? What parameter will be used in the final selection process? Another question that readily comes to mind is, if there will be eviction at all. Yes, there will be voting, but what will the vote decide? Will housemates be evicted from the house or will the 16 love guests stay in the house till the end? If there is an eviction, then Ultimate Love appears like a cloned reality show. If there is no eviction, then the reality show is ultimately heading to anti-climax on arrival. It will then be stripped of a major aspect – Suspense. Is reality not full of suspense. Is life itself not drama? A questions the organizers haven’t answered yet.

3. How were the Love Guests selected?

To some viewers, the housemates just appeared from nowhere. There was no publicity about the audition as it is popular with the BBN.

4. What would be the activities of the love guests in the house?

What will they be preoccupied with for a period of 60 days? Are the activities going to be based on love issues? Nigerians believe that the organizers will have to be very creative in ensuring exceptional and unique activities that won’t look cloned from BBN. Its, therefore, a big task for the organizers to achieve as having followed the events of the new reality show for the past 24 hours, one wonders what will keep the housemates pre-occupied for the duration of the show. What games would be introduced? What would be the tasks? How would the housemates be called to order? Nigerians have already noticed a show struggling to find a unique feet and space, without necessarily being the ‘copy-cat.’

5. Can love be managed, tutored or directed? Does love select? Can any real love emerge from a situation where a man or woman is made to deliberately chase after a love partner in a carefully choreographed approach? Who is even a love aunty or coach? People love in varied ways, so how do you guide people to love? At the end, will that be a natural love? What is the parameter to measure the love among couples and how will they be merged? Now, the big question is, how will the love be measured? What will determine the realness of the love existing among the best couple? Nigerians think some love guests may pretend to be in love, plan to emerge as the best couple after which they’ll go their separate ways.
