BB2 winner 'Evil Will' to host NBC's 'Love Shack' reality show
By Reality TV World staff, 07/24/2002
Dr. Evil is returning to network television. Will Kirby, the crafty winner of "Big Brother 2" last year, has been named as the host for the new NBC reality show "Love Shack".
"Love Shack" centres around one single man and one single woman who move into a Southern California mansion on a quest to find true love while competing against each other to win a one-year lease on a California beach house. "Love Shack" is a six episode limited run series. The preview episode will be followed by the series premiere on Tuesday, Aug. 27, (8-9 p.m. ET) on NBC.
His appointment as host of "Love Shack" marks Will Kirby's first professional television job. When he made his appearance last year on "Big Brother 2," Kirby was an amateur, an internal medicine doctor looking to make a career change. The media attention he garnered while earning the nickname "Dr. Evil," and his subsequent victory on the show, helped make that possible. Although Kirby was recently passed the medical boards in California, he has focused his energies on the entertainment business. He spent the last year in Hollywood writing and developing reality series and feature film projects, which he is now selling to the networks and studios. Along with writing, Will has been studying acting and making fans in NY and LA through his auditions.
