Congratulations, Rick Bayless, winner of the 2009 season of Top Chef Masters! Tonight we will eat a tamale in your honor.
Update: We just spoke to Jennifer Fite, Bayless’s publicist, who said “You want my comment? I think it’s really lame that this is online. Nobody knows who the winner is. It’s all for charity, it’s for fun. I think it’s a disservice to these chefs, a disservice to these charities. I think it’s really lame that it’s out there, and I think it’s lame that you put it up there. It’s lame for everybody. It’s not nice to Rick’s fans, it’s not nice to anyone’s fans. Why on earth would you put that up when the episode Rick’s on hasn’t even run? I would never want to ruin that for anyone.”
When we asked her to confirm or deny Bayless’s win, she hung up on us.
