Twitter Social Media Challenge: Food Network’s All-Star Academy /Week 6

The creators of Food Network All Star Academy certainly got the twists and thrills right in this show. Last week the Mentor Chefs competed against each other for the opportunity to bring back an eliminated home cook. The fierce competition among the Mentor Chefs was great fun to watch. Chef Alex and Chef Michael tried to make amends, for what they perceived, as their faults for their home cooks going home.

Chef Bobby, with a full complement team, decided not to compete to add another cook to his team. And Chef Curtis wanted Mimi Chang back on his team. The Tweeples waited inpatiently, through a cliff hanger commercial, to find out which home cook was coming back to All Star Academy. There was some disappointment …

… and some virtual cheers when Chef Alex Guarnaschelli  brought back her home cook August Dannehl.

With Chef Alex’s win the game was at 2 full teams — Team Alex and Team Bobby.

However, the twists and turns of competition food TV soon saw Chef Bobby Flay saying good bye to his team home cook Angela George. Team Alex now is the only team with the advantage of 2 home cooks.

The winner of this week’s Social Media Challenge is Sherri Williams @logansw62 with a significant Follower Increase of 71! Congrats Sherri.
