"Watch What Happens Live" Featuring Top Chef Winner Up Double Digits Across All Key Demos Compared To Previous Wednesday

NEW YORK - February 28, 2013 -Bravo Media's "Top Chef" crowned its 10th winner, and the franchise's second female winner ever, Kristen Kish, with the highest-rated episode of the season among all key demos on Wednesday with over 1.85 million live same day total viewers, up 7 percent from the prior week (2/20/13), according to Nielsen.

The two finalists were tasked with cooking five dishes live in front of a studio audience - including host Padma Lakshmi, judges Tom Colicchio, Hugh Acheson, Emeril Lagasse and Gail Simmons, and all nine previous "Top Chef" winners for the first time ever.

As previously announced, the Emmy and James Beard Award-winning series and the No. 1 rated food show on cable, "Top Chef," will be returning for an eleventh season later this year. "Top Chef" is produced by the Emmy Award-winning Magical Elves for Bravo. Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz serve as executive producers.
