Top Chef Spoiler

Top Chef fans beware! If you do not want to know the winner of Bravo's food reality TV show, Top Chef, DO NOT click on the links below. Food and Wine magazine "mistakenly" published the winner of Top Chef on their website for 15 minutes this morning. Their "apology" blames a fan for hacking into the server and posting the story.

Yesterday, an intrepid reality tv fan found a Top Chef story on Food & Wine's server. Food & Wine prepared profiles of both Top Chef finalists in advance of the last episode so that we had a story on the winner ready to publish immediately after the season finale. Now for everyone to see, here are profiles of both finalists, Marcel and Ilan. Watch Top Chef on Wednesday, January 31 at 10PM EST to find out the real winner.

All of this smells pretty fishy to me, I mean how could Food and Wine not know this was published? Makes me wonder if this is some sort of crazed publicity stunt to make us all watch the final espisode. Either way I'll be watching even if I do already know who won...
