Twitter Social Media Challenge: Food Network’s All-Star Academy /Week 8

We may not know them, but as the game grows more competitive for the $50k prize, in Twitterville passions run strong for both the Food Network All Star Academy judges and home cook contestants. For some Tweeples it’s even a family affair. @TheMrsCornell tweets ,”My6yo stressing over @bflay & Joseph ranking third.”

Last week on Food Network All Star Academy was a Mash-up game. Or pick one from column A and one from column B.  Working with two ingredients, that seemed like they came from a Food Network Chopped basket, the last four contestents cooked their hearts out. This elimintation would ax not only a home cook but with no people on the team … it was bye bye a mentor judge as well.

It was a sad moment when Sharon from Team Curtis was eliminated.

The winner of this week’s Diva Food Social Media/Twitter Challenge is …. Vanessa! Vanessa brought 41 new Twitter Followers to her party.
