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.
