''Big Brother'' evictee Will talks with Jessica Shaw about getting evicted by his flirtmance and how he's going to make up with his real-life reality-TV girlfriend
Chill Town got frozen out last night when Dr. Will Kirby (or Dr. Delicious or Dr. Evil, depending on how you feel about him) got evicted by his flirtmance, Janelle. Will called us on his way to the sequester house to discuss what it feels like to be evicted, who he thinks will win, and why he desperately needs EW's help.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Hey, Will. How are you feeling today?
WILL KIRBY: What's going on, beautiful?
Nice to see you're true to form. You looked a little stunned last night talking to Julie Chen. Have you recovered? Are you sad?
Sad? No. Sad is not the word I would use to describe myself. I guess I'm a little numb. It's clearly a weird situation when you get thrown off a reality show.
Were you surprised that Janelle teamed up with Erika in the end?
I wasn't completely shocked by any means. I had an inkling early in the day it wouldn't go my way, but I was still hopeful. At the end of the day I was still shocked I made it this far.
Last night, the way viewers saw it, you and Boogie were working out while Janelle and Erika were conspiring. Did you know what was going on?
We were well aware they were together. But Chill Town was the most brazen alliance in the history of television. At the end of the day, although we had hoped that Janelle and Erika were on our side, it was completely logical to break up Chill Town. It makes complete sense.
But why didn't you try harder to get Janelle to vote out Erika?
I absolutely tried to talk Janelle into it. Obviously there was a flirtmance going on, and she wanted to know if we were going to be together after the show, but I was obviously misleading her because I had a girlfriend. Her big thing was she wanted me to kiss her on TV, and I wouldn't, and I think that was my downfall.
Doesn't she have a boyfriend too?
Who knows? She does, but not enough. We were both playing each other. She just did a better job of it.
I was sort of surprised Janelle bonded so strongly with Erika, who's kind of annoying. Is Erika actually smart?
She's an incredibly smart player, but she's also annoying. They're not mutually exclusive.
If I were Boogie, I would go into hiding after the show because Erika is going to murder him after she hears what he said about her.
I don't know. I haven't seen the show. But I can't imagine it's very good.
What is your girlfriend going to make of the show?
My girlfriend is Erin Brodie, from For Love or Money. My girlfriend knows reality shows backwards and forwards. She's won two of them. She and I had a long conversation last night trying to patch things up. She can hopefully understand my perspective and hopefully can forgive me for what she saw on the show. I can only imagine how bad it is.
You got to talk to a non-Big Brother human?
She was my main contact person, so I got a five-minute phone call with her. Believe me, it was monitored and strained. She was definitely disappointed in my behavior in a lot of ways, but we love each other very much. If you could put a plug in there about how much I love her, I would appreciate that.
At least you never cheated on her.
That's the point. I didn't at all. I didn't physically cheat on her, but emotionally can sometimes be worse. It probably hurts to watch it.
Do you regret kicking anyone out too early? Like, perhaps, Marcellas?
I don't regret kicking anyone out. Everyone should have kicked me out way earlier. When you're telling 12 people to their face that you hate them?
Can Mike Boogie win this show?
The only way he has a snowball's chance in hell is if he can check his ego and be more humble. I don't think his chances are good. In the jury house, you're not allowed to discuss the show, but I'm going to do everything I can to manipulate people into voting for Boogie if he makes it.
How would you and Boogie have handled it if you had both been in the final two?
The way I saw it all along was when anyone from Chill Town wins, all of Chill Town wins. We have multiple businesses together; we have restaurants in L.A. At the end of the day he supported me very much after my win. It's my turn to help him win.
Are you saying you would have thrown it in the end so he could win?
No, we definitely would have had a gentlemen's agreement, but I think it would have been hard for me to win the show under any circumstances. I hope he can make it to the final two.
Who do you think will win the final HOH?
I don't think Janelle is going to lose anything. But at the same time, a lot of competitions were thrown by us for her, so maybe she's not as good as people thought.
NEXT: The perils of reality-TV dating
When you said a few weeks ago that you were going to rebuild Janelle as the best Big Brother player, you weren't kidding.
I know. I made a robot I couldn't control. I made Robot Barbie.
You know, at some point during the show, almost the whole house called Janelle fat. What's up with that?
She's voluptuous. She came in and probably gained some pounds, but she's beautiful.
Will, don't be saying things like how beautiful Janelle is if you're trying to win back your girlfriend.
Oh, yeah. That damn pig, I hate her guts. Just kidding. The truth is, she isn't anything compared to my girlfriend. Erin Brodie is a woman. She's beautiful. She's gorgeous. She carries herself with a ton of confidence. That's why I love her.
You'll be able to manipulate her into forgiving you.
Who are we kidding? You women are crazy. Just kidding. I think she was probably hurt by the amount of flirting. I really thought we'd be kicked out very quickly, and I wouldn't be gone long. I'm 33, and we've been dating a year and a half. You're at that point in your relationship where you don't want to be gone for that long.
Maybe you should propose to her right here on ew.com.
That's not a bad idea. [EW writers] Josh Wolk and Lynette Rice will be the flower girls. I love Erin to death, and I really hope she can look past this. From an EW perspective, wouldn't it be interesting to see two reality-show contestants get hitched? We think we'd be great on Amazing Race. I'm hoping CBS picks up on that.
Do you think you'll go back and watch the entire season?
I'll fast forward through it. I'm not going to sit and analyze it. I felt like I had a pretty good command of what was going on while I was in there. I'm very fascinated to see people's reactions when they find out certain things, like the Legion of Doom.
Is there anyone you're most looking forward to seeing and/or least looking forward to seeing in the sequester house?
I'm not happy to be going to sequester by any means. You're sitting in a house of angry people, but I only have to do it for a few days. I'm very much looking forward to seeing Danielle. I respect her game playing. Howie is entertaining, but he is also annoying, so I'm probably least looking forward to seeing him.
What was up with you and Howie earlier in the season?
Howie and Janelle were obsessed with me. They were molesting me and touching me all the time. I don't know what you make of that.
How much has your reality notoriety/fame helped your career?
I practice dermatology, and I always say one hand washes the other in L.A. The restaurant industry and the entertainment and medical industry overlap. I make a lot more private house calls to celebrities. I work more with studios. I got a new gig with Dr. 90210.
Are you afraid of people hating you and yelling at you on the street after the show?
I am afraid of that. But I hope people respect comedy. I really tried to make it fun and funny and bring a positive energy to the show.
What's the biggest misconception you think people have about you?
I am very different from what you see on TV. I try to turn it up a lot. In real life I'm laid-back and introspective and quiet. People expect me to be yelling with no shirt on and hair all messed up. The biggest misconception is who I really am.
Who's going to win?
It's going to be hard to beat Janelle. If it's Boogie and Erika, I'm going to do everything I can. Maybe even bribing. Maybe I'll throw everyone an extra $10K to vote for Boogie.
At least you get to go on long beach walks in sequester.
No, they had to be evacuated because of a hurricane, so the house is [somewhere else we can't reveal]. My life is getting worse and worse.
Any regrets about doing the show?
I actually really didn't want to do it. I talked myself into it, and Mike Boogie talked me into it. In retrospect I wouldn't do it again, and I should not have done it. Coming in fourth place, people are like, ''Hey, congratulations.'' But it kind of sucks. If you don't win, you're just a random person on the show. I'm really ready to stop doing crappy reality shows. I'm never doing this again. This has been the bane of my existence.
I love the show, but my husband thinks it's the worst show on TV.
Your husband is right. I just went to reconnect my phone, and I told the woman I've been gone for three months because I was on a reality show, and she asked which one, and I told her, and she said, ''Yeah, I wouldn't watch that.''
