The Winner of the CHEESEWERKS Contest is...


Congratulations Cheryl! Please contact CHEESEWERKS to reserve your BIG CHEESE EXPERIENCE dinner for two (note that October 3 is the last day to redeem your prize)I hope you and your guest will enjoy CHEESEWERKS =D

I also want to say a big THANKS to the 88 contestants who participated in this giveaway

Here's a snapshot of the Excel spreadsheet where I tracked the #bigcheeseexperience hashtag stream from day one of the contest. The tracking was done using chronological order, as in, #1 was the first person who entered right the contest. To enter, the person has to tweet "I want to win the BIG CHEESE EXPERIENCE dinner for TWO from @CHEESEWERKS #bigcheeseexperience". Once the contest was over and everybody's entries were accounted for in my spreadsheet, I went to check if they actually followed me on Twitter (I also sent the below list of contestants to CHEESEWERKS for them to verify.)

After checking the list above, we found that 31 out of the 88 contestants did not follow BOTH of us on twitter (read the rules people!). After eliminating those 31 people from the list, I was left with 57 contestants.  I then went to "True Random Number Generator" from to randomly pick a winner from the updated list.
