Dr. Will Kirby, arguably one of the most famous names to ever do Big Brother is now denying claims that he will be doing the upcoming season of Big Brother starting next week. Dr. Will as well as his “duo”, Mike “Boogie”, were put in a poll yesterday on CBS.com, asking the fans who they want to be in the upcoming season, premiering this upcoming Thursday. As noted previously, it won’t matter who gets the majority of the votes on the CBS websites as the “duos” from the past have already been sequestered, according to a Etidbits.com source. As of this post, Dr. Will and Mike “Boogie” are polling in fourth place on the fan poll, behind Jeff & Jordan, Evil Dick & Daniele, and Brendon & Rachel, respectively.
In a new blog entry on his website, he said now the he has a child, he is more concerned with his son than the “superfluous” known as Big Brother:” My focus these days is my family, my friends and my profession,” he said in a new blog entry. He adds, “While I sincerely appreciate the enthusiasm of reality television fans I have other priorities that supersede any possible participation in non-scripted programming this summer. Moreover, I absolutely enjoy public speaking and the occasional television appearance but I have officially retired from competition based shows – There is simply nothing left for me to accomplish in this genre. Now please don’t take this as a statement of arrogance; If you truly contemplate my current situation as well as my past history I’m sure you’ll agree with this decision.
“That said, I wish nothing but the best to Robyn Kass, Allison Grodner, Rich Meehan, Les Moonves, Julie Chen and the entire CBS family. Will I watch Big Brother? Honestly, I don’t watch much TV these days. I also don’t think anyone was ever lying on his or her deathbed and said, “Now that my life is about to end I have one major regret: I sure wished I had spent more time watching Big Brother”! Point being, I’m a little preoccupied these days but I’m confident that the contestants this summer will provide the fans with minutes of entertainment.”
