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?
There's a certain level.of.competitiveness that matches any sport in intensity.

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!
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.
