Bravo Fans Await ‘Top Chef,’ ‘Work Out’ Finales


Top Chef: Chicago and Work Out, two of the highest-rated series in Bravo’s programming lineup, will wrap it up next with their respective season finales.

Top Chef, the most-watched food show on cable, concludes with the final three “chef-testants”—Richard, Lisa and Stephanie—battling it out in Puerto Rico “to cook the meal of their lives” on Wednesday, June 11 at 10 p.m. ET.

Special guest judge, Eric Ripert, executive chef at Le Bernardin in New York, joins host Padma Lakshmi (pictured), head judge Tom Colicchio, judge Gail Simmons of Food & Wine Magazine and culinary expert Ted Allen to find out who must “pack their knives and go home,” and who will become the next “Top Chef.”

Wednesday's airing of Top Chef, ranked as the highest non-finale telecast ever for the series among adults 18-49 and total viewers, and was the No. 1 ranked cable telecast for the day among adults 18-49. Compared to the prior season's 13th episode, Top Chef: Chicago was up 53% among adults 18-49—2,201,000 viewers vs. 1,438,000 viewers and up 36% among total viewers (2,882,000 vs. 2,124,000).

Last week, Work Out, a reality series chronicling the owner, trainers and clients of a Beverly Hills spa and gym, checked in with 927,000 viewers, up 19% from the prior week and up 18% among viewers between 18 and 49 years of age.

On the Work Out series finale, Jackie Warner’s romantic relationship hits a rocky patch just as the results of her Skylabbers' weight loss is revealed Tuesday, June 10 at 10 p.m. ET. When Warner finds suspicious text messages on her girlfriend Briana's phone, the two decide to pay a visit to Warner's therapist. But with so much going on with her business, will Warner be up to the task of repairing her relationship?

Jackie has one last Skylab boot camp before her clients are weighed and their dramatic final results are revealed. Greg Butler's Skylabber, Deenie, is especially anxious following her run-ins with Butler and her dramatic ankle sprain.
