A big day for Chris, Kelly, Natasha, Alec, and Neale!
Following a week of public voting, Explorer has announced the final five contests in their search to find the Ultimate UAE Explorer. Over 10,000 votes have been cast and this morning the five finalists gathered at the Bonnington for a gourmet breakfast in the Cavendish Restaurant before taking on the last challenge that will see the Ultimate Explorer being determined.
The five finalists are:
Chris Perry – who won a Golden Ticket straight to the semi finals through Explorer’s Facebook competition.
Kelly Beckta – who won a place in the top 100 through Explorer’s Facebook competition.
Natasha Masqood – who won a place in the semi finals after viewing the Seawings flight she won in the first round of the competition.
Alec Harden –who won a place in the top 100 through our partner Virgin Atlantic and his Balloon Adventures Emirates flight review secured his place in the semi finals.
Neale Faulkner – who won a hot air balloon trip with Balloon Adventures Emirates in the first round of the competition and was selected to move to the semi finals from his review.
Today’s event will be a race against the clock to solve clues and reach different secret locations across the UAE. The first contestant to finish all the challenges, having solved all the clues and taken photos of themselves at all the secret UAE destinations, will be crowned the Ultimate UAE Explorer and win a fully furnished luxury Bonnington apartment for a year, a car for exploring, Virgin Atlantic flights to London and New York or LA, AED 50,000 shopping allowance for Adventure HQ, plus much more.
The overall winner will keep their day job but, as the Ultimate UAE Explorer, their leisure time will be transformed. They will also get their own weekly blog on the Explorer website and a column in Explorer’s Live Work Explore Magazine each month, where they will share their free experiences with Explorer’s readers.
Following this morning’s breakfast, the contestants sprinted out of the Bonnington to their cars, eager to get a head start on the last big challenge:
