DEAR STACY: I read in your column where John Henson said that there would be a mini version of the “Wipeout” obstacle course touring the country this summer. When will it be in this area? – Nick G., Moreno Valley, CA
DEAR NICK: Sorry, but the tour finished up mid-June, after the “Wipeout” course replica opened at Orlando, New York, Atlanta, Nashville and other Eastern and Southern locations. Maybe with enough demand, they’ll bring it to other parts of the country.
DEAR STACY: Is Bob Harper of “The Biggest Loser” gay? – M.K., Dearborn Hgts. MI

As one user noted, “gay or straight…I don’t care…beautiful piece of man!”
