(Newser) – A clip posted on Bravo.com today has the new winner of Top Chef: DC being congratulated and talking about the keys to victory. Big problem: The clip got posted hours before tonight's TV finale. (The reveal comes almost immediately, so avoid if you'd rather watch the show.)

Writes Jon Bershad at Mediaite (which provides the video): "It’s probably the worst case of a network’s online team ruining a surprise (that I can remember, at least) since FX accidentally spoiled a two-season-long mystery on the show Nip/Tuck by posting publicity shots of the actor playing a serial rapist and murderer on their website a day before the identity was shown."
