‘Big Brother 22’: Dr. Will Kirby Endorses Da’Vonne Rogers for America’s Favorite Player

[SPOILER ALERT: Spoilers ahead for Big Brother 22.]

Popular competitor Da’Vonne Rogers returned for All-Stars four years after she last appeared. Even though Da’Vonne was a fan-favorite for two seasons of Big Brother, she hasn’t won America’s Favorite Player. BB2 winner and legendary player Dr. Will Kirby thinks her exit speech might have done the trick to earn her the AFP title this year.

Da’Vonne Rogers a fan-favorite for three seasons of ‘Big Brother’

In 2015, Da’Vonne Rogers, a poker dealer from California, debuted on Big Brother 17. She quickly became known for confronting other houseguests about their lies.

Her several blowups with her co-competitors led to her nomination in Week 2, and they evicted her in a 7-2 vote. However, her unforgettable and meme-able personality left a mark, and she returned for BB18. The fan-favorite played a more aggressive game and formed several alliances.

However, the other houseguests began seeing her as a big threat, which led to her eviction in Week 6. Still one of the most beloved houseguests, the now 32-year-old acting coach returned for the second edition of All-Stars.

She quickly bonded with Bayleigh Dayton, but the duo sat on the outs of a broader alliance and ended up on the block together. Da’Vonne survived but joined the jury two weeks later in Week 7.

Dr. Will Kirby returned to ‘Big Brother 22’ as the neighbor

Miami-based physician Dr. Will Kirby first competed on Big Brother 2. After his allies’ evictions, Dr. Will stayed in the game until the final two due to innovative strategies that got him through each week. He then won in a 5-1 vote over Nicole Schaffrich.

Dr. Will returned for All-Stars five seasons later alongside Chilltown buddy, Mike “Boogie” Malin. Even though he entered the house as the only former winner, he manipulated the other houseguests into getting rid of other targets. However, Erika Landin and Janelle Pierzina figured it out, and the latter cast the sole vote to evict the physician at the final four.

Dr. Will has largely remained in the BB community despite being a successful celebrity dermatologist and chief medical officer of aesthetic dermatology company LaserAway.

He has hosted the Jury Roundtable, where jurors discuss who they want to win the $500,000 grand prize, since season 15 and previously held the live interviews after the finale. The now 47-year-old returned for BB22 and moved into the next-door neighbor house as part of a twist for the competitors.

Shortly before Dr. Will introduced himself as the neighbor to the remaining houseguests, Da’Vonne left the competition in a 5-2 vote. In her eviction speech, she spoke about other “strong black women” who have played, including BB3 runner-up Dani Reyes, Celebrity BB champ Tamar Braxton, and the late season 1 star Cassandra Waldon.

She then spoke about her desire to become the first black houseguest to win in the show’s U.S. history. In an interview with Us Weekly, Dr. Will commented on her memorable speech.

He called it “one of the best exit speeches” the show has had and noted he believes it made her a real contender for the coveted title of America’s Favorite Player.

The hashtag, “Da’Vonne Appreciation Day” as well as her name, trended on Twitter for a couple of hours during her final episode. Big Brother 22: All-Stars airs Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
