The American reality star and a personal trainer Robert “Bob” Harper is quite popular for his appearance in The Biggest Loser. The 54-year-old Nashville-native has always been in the limelight ever since he joined the reality show back in 2004.
Bob prefers keeping his love life out of the public eye which makes his fans curious to know about his relationships and affair. However, he has shared a few things through his social media in the last couple of years that have led the fans to believe that he is enjoying a secret marital bliss. In addition, there is also news that he is gay.
Today let’s find out about his sexuality and know if Bob Harper is married or not? Let’s find out who is his spouse?
Bob Harper is Gay-When Did He Come Out?
Many of Bob’s fans are already familiar but some of them are unaware of the fact that he’s gay. You read that right. Bob came out of the closet in the seventh episode of The Biggest Loser season 15 aired on 28th November 2013.
Back then, he opened up about his sexuality while talking to a contestant who was having difficulty coming out to his parents. Bob said he revealed his sexuality to his parents at 17. That was the first occasion he was talking about his sexual orientation publicly.
After Bob revealed he is gay, his fans tried to find out about his relationships and affairs, but Bob was quite conscious to keep his relationship under the media radar.

After his post, several online media including People went on to speculate that Bob Harper married his boyfriend Anton Gutierrez. Anton is an actor and set decorator, notable for Genie in a Bikini (2015) and Sad Studs (2015).
Bob also tagged his partner Gutierrez who also shared the same photo on his Instagram with the caption “I can do this forever.”
Meanwhile, some other reputed media including Us Weekly reported the lovebirds became engaged at the time. But neither Bob nor Anton has disclosed if the couple got married or engaged as of yet.
There is no clear information on when Bob and Anton started dating, however, they have been together at least since 2016.
In late 2016, the couple appeared on Oprah where they joked about their dynamic in the kitchen. Harper said, “He is a great sous-chef. He does everything that I tell him to do” about his then-boyfriend.
Bob is a Dad of Two
While visiting Bob Harper’s Instagram, his short bio draws everyone’s eyes. He has written he is a “dad to Karl & Vivienne.” Well, he isn’t talking about any kids, but his pet dogs, Karl Lagerfeld and Vivienne Westwood-named for Harper’s favorite two fashion designers. This short line can describe how much he is in love with these two lovely animals.
Bob frequently shares his pets’ photos on Instagram. In August 2020, he shared a photo of his two dogs writing “These kids of mine have helped me more than they will ever know” in the caption.
Bob adopted Karl in 2010 from an LA-based dog rescue organization that rescued him from the streets of Baldwin Hills in South LA. “I was going to save him, and now, it’s Karl who’s saved me,” said Bob.
Bob purchased Vivienne from a store in 2017.
Bob Previously Dated Reza Farahan
In January 2015, a little over a year after he came out, Bob Harper talked about his past fling. During his appearance in a Bravo TV show, Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Bob revealed his past relationship while responding to a question from the host Andy Cohen.
Andy wanted to know if the rumors about his and Shahs of Sunset star Reza Farahan’s relationship were true. To this, Bob said, “We had a thing-a very, very long time ago!” He added “It was a tawdry little thing! I love Reza though. I love him!”
Bob, however, didn’t share anything more about his relationship with Reza. Bravo TV then reached to Reza to know more about the affair. Reza agreed he and Bob dated a long time ago. “It was in the early 1800s,” he joked.
He also told them that he and Bob were still in touch and they were having business deals with each other.
