It’s become increasingly hard to ignore the strong chemistry between Andy Cohen and host of The Biggest Loser Bob Harper. Every time Harper appears on Cohen’s late night chat fest Watch What Happens Live, he and Cohen exhibit a playful and flirtatious banter that has made many wonder; why have these two handsome bachelors not paired up?
In 2015, Cohen released a “Crush Week” list, and included two clips of two of Harper’s appearances on Watch What Happens Live and their playful banter in both clips took a slightly elevated tone.
During a 2016 #WWHL appearance by Harper, a caller specifically asked what Harper was looking for in a man. As Harper mentioned that he was looking for someone “smart” and someone who “has something going on” Cohen gave him a sheepish grin that possibly indicated that a conversation like this had occurred before…
During a 2017 appearance, Harper was specifically asked on the After Show why he and Cohen never worked out as anything more than friends. Harper said he “loves” Andy and “does not get to see him enough”. After teasingly doing Beyonce’s iconic “if you like it then you better put a ring on it” hand motion from her anthem “Single Ladies”, Cohen blushed, smiled coyly, and quickly moved to the next segment.
Harper’s most recent visit to the clubhouse was late last week, when he was a guest with Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice. Throughout the show, Cohen and Harper’s playful flirtatiousness and obvious affection for each other was clear, years after Harper’s first Clubhouse visit.
While time will only tell if Cohen and Harper could possibly be a permanent love match, their evident and mutual love for each other as friends and positive LGBT representations in media seems to be a great place to start.
Mazel indeed gentleman!
