Rachel Reilly Claps Back at Will Kirby’s Comments on Big Brother Stars

Hell hath no fury like a Rachel Reilly scorned. Just moments after former Big Brother winner Dr. Will Kirby shared his opinions about ex-BB players’ performance on The Traitors, Rachel is firing back with her own critique. 

“No, I’ll call it like it is,” Rachel wrote on X, formerly Twitter. “Will doesn’t have the [blank] to go on this or any show and throws shade at us who do. He knows he’s [first] out. Tell me you don’t have time off; you’re the owner of your practice — [you’re] overrated.” 

Answer the phone call, Will…

Will, who won Season 2 of Big Brother and is often referred to as one of the best players of all time, clearly rubbed some CBS alum the wrong way during an earlier interview where he trashed former BB contestants who’ve appeared on Peacock’s most-watched reality series. 

“Well, I don’t think it’s any secret that the four Big Brother contestants [Cody CalifioreJanelle PierzinaDan Gheesling, and Rachel] on the first two seasons of The Traitors have done poorly,” he said. “See, I think some Big Brother players went on The Traitors to show that they ‘still got it’ — only to realize that they actually ‘never had it’.”

Will’s observations come after watching another BB winner, Dan, get annihilated by the Real Housewives of Atlanta’s own Phaedra Parks during an earlier roundtable discussion, sending him packing. His exit was the second BB banishment in a row, following Janelle’s departure the episode before. 

So, how can we settle this debate once and for all? Are Big Brother players cut out for this game? Can Will prove them wrong and show everyone why he’s still the best? Additionally, is Dr. Kirby one of the “never-was” players he’s referring to himself? The only way to find out is to answer Alan Cumming’s invite to play in Season 3. 

Go on, Will. What are you waiting for?
