The doctor is here! Big BrotherSeason 2 winner Dr. Will KirbyThe jury roundtable for season 24 finale will be hosted by,

The celebrity dermatologist only spoke to Us Weekly after filming with this year’s jury members – Indy Santos, Jasmine Davis, Joseph Abdin, Kyle Capener, Terrance Higgins, Michael Bruner, Alyssa Snider Brittany Hoopes.

“My sense is that they all got along fairly well in the jury house but as soon as I started asking some provocative questions, well, that ignited a spark and a lot of raw emotion was expressed,” Kirby explains to Use. “There were a few times during the roundtable where we had to ask a few of the houseguests to sit down, take some deep breaths, and calmly reset. Needless to say, tensions are running high with the jury!”

The Chief Medical Officer of LaserAway says this year’s jury was “very, very opinionated,” and it sounds like things got heated. He tells us that he is still proud of the results. Use, “Everyone this year (once they finally all calmed down) was reasonable and actively participated.”

Dr. Will Kirby Teases Tense ’Big Brother’ 24 Jury: They Were ‘Very Opinionated’

Us Weekly: This is your eighth time hosting the jury roundtable.

Dr. Will Kirby I’m truly honored to back once again! There was a two-season hiatus because of COVID but it’s wonderful to be again be spending an evening challenging the beliefs of the evicted houseguests – I truly love the job!

Use: Do you ever get frustrated hosting a roundtable with the jurors?

Dr. Will:Show editors and producers are geniuses. It takes many hours to film the jury roundtable. They always make me look great! That said, the second I walk in that stage, I’m a consummate professional; I know the jury roundtable isn’t about me – it’s about the evicted houseguests and their personal and collective journeys. I want them to work through their emotions, to let go of their subjectivity and personal biases and to focus on the final three houseguests and the game they played and why they might be the best candidate to win. Let’s be really clear: $750,000 is a tremendous amount of money and we really need them to consider all options before casting their votes.

Use: Tell us something about how this year’s jury roundtable. Are there any teasers?

Dr. Will:I believe they all got along quite well in the jury house, but once I started asking provocative question, that ignited an emotion and a lot was shared. During the roundtable, there were several times when we had the need to ask some houseguests to pause, take deep breaths, then calmly reset. The jury is running high on tensions, it’s obvious!

Use: How does this jury compare with juries from years ago?

Dr. Will:Each jury is unique. However, I can assure you that everyone in this year’s jury was fair and actively participated once they had calmed down. In the past, I’ve been pretty frustrated because some of the jury members refused to participate or were so affected and obsessed with themselves that they were just didn’t offer anything meaningful. One example: A few years back, one of our jury members was a sourpuss who sat cross-legged and refused to speak. I get it! You’re frustrated! You’re frustrated! Again, there are some juries that are more difficult to work with than others. This year, they were very opinionated which makes for a great roundtable experience.

Use: You’ve been accused of attempting to sway jury members?

Dr. Will: I wouldn’t normally dignify something so ridiculous, but just so we can put this to rest once and for all, let me clearly state, for the record, that absolutely no one has asked me to persuade the jury to make any specific decision nor have I ever considered doing anything remotely like that. I take pride in my integrity, ethics, and rectitude and I don’t try to influence any jury members.

Use: Would hosting the jury panel ever make you want back to the show as a guest host? Maybe for a shorter “legends” season people keep speculating about?

Dr. Will: If I’m being honest, on very, very rare occasions I’ll allow myself to entertain the thought of maybe, possibly, one day returning to the most exciting competition in the world and showing these young bucks how to really play. But I love being an aesthetic dermatologist; it’s the best profession on earth, and my professional legacy will be as the Chief Medical Officer of the nation’s leading aesthetic dermatology group, LaserAway!

Use: Who would you like to see compete in that season?

Dr. Will:No hesitation: Monica Bailey is my desire!
