In a change from previous seasons, the fan favorite did not wait a week and was not just a tidbit in one of the Watch What Happens: L!ve episodes. Titled "Top Chef Finale Special," the episode ran on a special night and time, immediately following the finale at 11:00 pm E/P (10 pm CT). The full half-hour was devoted to all things Top Chef. The guests were the winner and runner-up, questions were taken from the studio audience, online, as well as two live sites in California and New York, and the fan favorite was named. Fabio Viviani and Carla Hall were the two fan favorite contenders. Season one Top Chef winner Harold Dieterle announced Carla as the winner of the $10,000 prize.
