    Hello, I have a thread going in the lounge about big brother 2 and I just found out that Will, one of the participants in Big Brother 2 on CBS is a DO. For those of you who have not been watching the show, Will has been one of the most hated members of the house for the last couple of weeks for many reasons. People consider him arrogant, he plays mind games with people, he likes to talk about how smart he is and how easy people are to manipulate, and people think that he has been a snob. I was just wondering what you osteopathic students think about Will. He has not mentioned that he is a DO even though he talks about being a physician all the time. I don't know whether I would be angry that he was not taking the opportunity with such a wide audience to educate everyone about DO's or whether I would be glad that he had not mentioned that he was a DO because I would think that DO's and the medical profession in general would not want him as a representative. Now that you all know that he is a DO, I'm sure that you will want to watch it, it comes on CBS on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. I was told that his full name is William T. Kirby (CBS does not give last names for the people on Big Brother on it's website), if you all wanted to look him up or if anyone is working at the same hospital he is and wanted to meet him. The website that has his info is http://directory.aoa-net.org/ScriptContent/custom/PublicDetail.cfm?ID=076571 . He graduated from Nova Southeastern Univ College of Osteopathic Medicine in the year 2000.

    Doesn't medical school make you smart?
    Doesn't becoming a DO teach you how to "manipulate" people?

    Ha ha ha ha

    OK...not funny I guess.

    Goodnight!

    I found out through the person who goes by the name of "Tony Clifton" in the student doctor forums, he said that he had a friend that graduated with Will.

    Alright, now I am absolutely sure that Will on Big Brother 2 is Will Kirby, graduate of NOVA. Yesterday on the TV show, one of the other participants called him Mr. Kirby. He has still not said anything about being a DO though.

    Although this comment is quite late, I just couldn't pass it up. But maybe it is better that he not boast about being a DO. I do not think that he is that bright, and I would rather those who view the show do not get a biased opinion of osteopathy from this goofball. The other day he was talking to another house guest, I think Hardy is his name, and he made a reference to the "fat testing thingy" that they were playing with. I just think that as a physician, who has completed 4 years of medical school and 1 year of post grad, he should be somewhat familiar with various methods of recording anthropometric data, such as using calipers to measure skinfold. If I had no idea what osteopathy was, just from seeing that guy, I wouldn't think it was medicine. He is pretty funny though.
