Each of these Twitter accounts offers something above and beyond, and has plenty of enthusiastic followers. All finalists in all categories are listed alphabetically.

Polls are open for voting, so once you've taken a look through the list of finalists, follow the link at the bottom to place your vote. Voting is limited to once per category, per day. There are nine other Game Show categories you can vote in as well, and these are also linked at the bottom of the page.

The account @DoubleDare25 was set up to recognize and celebrate the 25th anniversary of the game show Double Dare in 2011. There have been loads of great photos, giveaways, and fan interaction throughout the year (and into 2012 as well) serving as an entertaining walk down memory lane.


With well over 6,000 followers, the Twitter account for Family Feud has proven to be an effective way for the show to interact with fans old and new. If you're looking for casting alerts, video clips, and the same kind of fun that you'll find on the show, make sure you follow this account. They really do value their fans, and you'll find loads of retweets and personal replies to questions.


The Jeopardy! Twitter feed offers tournament and show updates, casting information, and a daily Jeopardy! trivia question (followed later by the answer to said question). Keep up with all things Jeopardy! by following them on Twitter.


The main draw for followers of the official Wheel of Fortune Twitter feed is the three-times-daily Toss-Up Puzzle. Fans compete to solve the puzzles every weekday, as letters are revealed at scheduled intervals. Of course you'll also find updates about the show and each theme week as well as contests and video clips. @WheelofFortune was last year's Readers' Choice winner in this category - can they pull it off again this year?


If you love watching Wipeout then you can really enhance your viewing experience by following along with the show's official Twitter account while the program is airing.
