Dr. William "Dr. Will" Kirby is the winner of Big Brother 2 (US). He would later return in Big Brother 7 (US).

On Big Brother 2 (US), Will was known for his friendship with fellow housemate Mike "Boogie" Malin, his showmance with Shannon Dragoo, and getting nominated four times and staying in the game with the help of his over the top clever strategies. On Day 82, he won $500,000 that season after staying 82 days inside the house and receiving the majority of votes from the previously evicted houseguests.

On Big Brother All-Stars (US), Will entered the house with a huge target on his back due to being the only winner in the game. However, with the help of fellow Big Brother 2 housemate and "Chilltown" member Mike "Boogie", Will was able to manipulate other houseguests (most notably his new showmance parter Janelle Pierzina) and managed to get rid of big names like Howie Gordon, James Rhine, and Danielle Reyes just to name a few. Will's ultimate demise was during the final 4 when Erika Landin and Janelle caught onto Chilltown's schemes. Since Mike "Boogie" was the HOH of that week and could not be evicted, Janelle, the Power of Veto holder of that week, casted the sole vote to evict Will from the house, making him the 6th member of the jury. At the finale, Will voted for his ally Mike "Boogie" to win the game.
