Voltaggio earns crown for sixth season

Bravo’s “Top Chef” delivered season highs in all demos for its finale Wednesday night as Michael Voltaggio took home the crown.

Last episode of Las Vegas-centric season six delivered 3.4 million viewers, up 16% vs. last week. Finale drew nearly 1 million more than the season opener on Aug. 19. Number was down, however, from the season-five finale that drew 3.7 million.

Tom Colicchio, Gail Simmons and Toby Young are judges. Padma Lakshmi is host.

Production for the seventh season will begin in January.
