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.
