Twitter Social Media Challenge: Food Network’s All-Star Academy /Week 5

Watching FoodTV competition shows can be an adrenal rush but live tweeting is like running a race along with the chefs and contestants! Live tweeting is the ultimate complement fans can pay to a TV show and its cast .. or in FoodTV the chefs & contestants.

Last week Food Network’s All Star Acacdemy said good bye to home chef Mimi Chang, Team Curtis. Mimi’s omlette done her in proving seemingly simple dishes might be the most difficult to cook well. As @LaBellaCupcakes tweets “My 6yr old says the good part is she can see her kids now & sleep in!”

Team Bobby Flay is the only team with the original two contestants. Wondering …. Does that mean Chef Bobby Flay is the best All Star Academy mentor?  Or does it mean Chef Bobby Flay is the best at choosing winning home cooks?

With an increase of 68 followers, this week’s Diva Foodies’s Social Media Most Followers Winner is Vanessa Craig  @v_lovesfood. Way to go Vanessa!
