BRAVO MEDIA MAKES DEBUT INTO GAMING WORLD

Network Launches Multi-Platform Game Initiative For "Top Chef" And "Real Housewives"

NEW YORK - April 1, 2010 - Calling all gamers! Making its first foray into the gaming world, Bravo Media announces the creation of three multi-platform games centered around Bravo's hit series "Top Chef" and "The Real Housewives" franchise. Fans can play to see if they have what it takes to be a "Top Chef," or earn points to become the next "Real Housewife." The games will be available on iPhones and BravoTV.com in the coming months, and will be Facebook Connect enabled so players can share their scores and challenge their friends to play.

"We know from our other social media initiatives how much our fans love to engage and connect with each other, so this is a perfect fit for our fans to experience Bravo on a whole new level," said Lisa Hsia, Senior Vice President, Digital Media, Bravo Media. "They can live the life of a 'Real Housewife' or test their kitchen prowess with the cast of 'Top Chef,' allowing them to be part of Bravo in a whole new way."

Bravo's online games include:

Top Chef Food Fight - available April 2010

The "Top Chef" food fight game allows players to have a messy good time in the kitchen with various "Top Chef" contestants, all while earning points and winning badges. Additionally, players can "Chef-ify" themselves by imposing their picture on their favorite cheftestant, and post their new chef image to their personal Facebook page.

Real Housewives Hidden Object Game - available May 2010

"The Real Housewives" Hidden Object game allows players to earn "housewife points" to become the newest housewife by helping the cast members from various cities find items they need for their next social event. Each scene will be based on a different "Real Housewives" franchise, including backstage at a fashion show with the cast of Atlanta, attending a photo shoot with the cast of New York City, and dinner at an Italian restaurant with the New Jersey cast. Fans earn points and badges that can be shared and posted onto their Facebook pages, and can invite and challenge their friends through Facebook invites. The game will be available online at BravoTV.com as well as an exclusive iPhone application.

Who Is "Top Chef?" - available June 2010

The "Who is Top Chef?" game allows users to test their skills to see if they have what it takes to be a culinary master. The game consists of a bundle of various mini-games where players cycle through three quick, single-player games that gauge their abilities in the categories of agility, memory and presentation. The combined scores from each of these mini-games adds up to a player's overall ranking that is displayed as a score and as a particular rank title - players vie to earn the title of "Mistress of Mincing" or the 'Fabio" among your friends.
