    On tonight’s special Thanksgiving episode of The Biggest Loser, longtime trainer Bob Harper surprised fans by publicly speaking about his sexuality. Harper, who has faced persistent rumors about his sexuality, took time to talk to one of his contestants, Bobby Saleem, who was not yet come out to his father. During the conversation, Bob decided to talk about his own experience coming out to his family at the age of 17. “I’m gay,” he confessed to Bobby hoping that by sharing his experience will help Bobby come out to his father who was visiting the ranch.


    EDIT:
    Just to clarify.. He was already out. It's just his personal life wasn't discussed on the show.

    Saw it?
    Hell, even the legally blind, saw it.
    Never really watched the show, but saw him on a talk show hocking a book: he opened his mouth and crossed his leg and I was: "GAY".

    The rivalry/dynamic between gay Bob & lesbian Jillian are what make that show great. Do you think the casting agents didn't know what they were doing?

    I totally agree. I kinda stopped watching the show after Jillian left. But now that she's back, things are somewhat more interesting. The rivalry can be entertaining.

    My favorite moment was the one time Bob lost it and "went Jillian" on one of his team members, freaking even Jillian out (too bad it doesn't include her subsequent "confessional" comments about how she thought essentially that she was the mean one while he was all granola and sunbeams):
