Twitter Social Media Challenge: Food Network’s All-Star Academy /Week 3

And then there were 7 Food Network All Star Academy contestants.  Although Bill Joerger III @phillyfire4106,  Team Michael Symon,  won the  Social Media Challenge last week with the most Twitter Followers at 64 (!) he didn’t fare as well on All Star Academy. As with any competition, FoodTV or social media, you’re on top one week and perhaps gone the next! With a team of One, the pressure is on for Team Michael.  Vanessa Craig  @v_lovesfood we know you’re up for the challenge.

This week’s Diva Foodies’s Social Media Most Followers winner is .. drum beat please … August Dannehl @chefaugust37 with a  Follower Increase for Week 3 of 61! Not only did Team Alex win the elimination round last week but the team scored big on Twitter followers. Rock on!

Chef Mentor: Michael Symon Contestants: Vanessa Craig

The live tweeters of All Star Academy didn’t get why Chef Symon told Bill to add cinnamon to his dish. Perhps the tweeples were right .. Judge Geoffry Zackarian @gzchef much didn’t like it either and  cost Bill the round. Twitter @KayCo51 “It’s a sin to use too much cinnamon.”
