MasterChef Season 8 – Twitter Cheat Sheet

MasterChef, the popular Fox Broadcasting/Gordon Ramsay Food TV Show, kicked off Season 8 and the competition is more intense than ever for the coveted white apron! There is no doubt this is a life changing event for every single finalist on the show.

We wondered… are TV Food shows the new sporting event?

We tweeted Scott Nuzum, sports editor at the Fort Scott Tribune, and asked if he considered MasterChef to be as competitive as any of the sports he covered.

As much as we love watching MasterChef, live tweeting with our Twitter pals, especially @JackieS and @JeffHarris7 and LaNeca321 is the best.  Marketers call this Social TV.  For us the IRT (in real time) chatting with others, passionate about the show, brings, can we say spice 😉  and even more fun to view the show. Tweeting along with friends is also an incentive to tune in every week!

It’s fun to find past MasterChef and MasterChef Junior finalists and winners live tweeting. Recently we tweeted with @LoganJrChef, @TanorriasTable, @Claud_Oval, @LAMarches, @Zac_Kara, @DJShaunONeale,

For the folks who love to live tweet #MasterChef, or want to connect with their favorite MasterChef finalists, we created a Twitter Cheat Sheet. We’ve included the Twitter Handles of the contestants from Season 8 that we could find. If you find other Twitter handles please tweet us @DivaFoodies or drop a comment to help add to the list.

Thanks to  @JeffHarris7 and @celebutardz for help in identifying MasterChef finalists’ Twitter handles.
