Big Brother News: Mike “Boogie” Malin Arrested For Threatening Will Kirby and His Kids With Gun
Big Brother alum Mike “Boogie” Malin was arrested after sending disturbing messages to his former co-star and ally, Dr. Will Kirby. While the two made some of the most memorable BB moments, they are no longer on friendly terms. Keep reading to get the details about this situation.
CBS Big Brother: Meeting Dr. Will Kirby
In July 2001, a Miami doctor named Will Kirby ended up cast on Big Brother, where he met L.A. bar owner Mike. The two became fast friends and would return to be on Big Brother: All-Stars in 2006. They created what is known as the “Chilltown Alliance.” They would create phony partnerships and blindside them, the laugh about it in the Diary Room. The alliance was revealed later on.
One BB Success Story
After Big Brother ended, Kirby appeared on several other TV shows. The aesthetic dermatologist snagged gigs on The Doctors, Then and Now, Robot Chicken, and won the Price Is Right. He also became a health and beauty writer for Life and Style magazine. It seems that Kirby has just gone up, but the same can’t be said for his former Big Brother ally.
The Other Took The Wrong Path
While the BB stars stayed friends after their appearances on the reality show, they took two completely separate directions. Unfortunately, Malin ended up facing legal and drug problems.
From Big Brother To Amazing Race?
Then, CBS contacted both Mike Boogie and Kirby to see if they were interested in being on the Amazing Race. While Malin wanted to do it, Kirby declined. This reportedly upset Malin, which led to him sending his former castmate disturbing messages, Showbiz Cheatsheet reports.
Mike ‘Boogie’ Malin Arrested
Once Malin started sending Kirby disturbing messages, it got to a point in which the physician had to block his number. The calls stopped, but about a year later, Malin started up again and emailed Kirby. What he sent were pictures of guns pointed at a screen, which included pictures of Kirby’s two young children, who are 6 and 9 years old.

Kirby felt that his family was in danger and went to the police. The FBI was also contacted, but that wouldn’t be the end of Malin’s threats. He began sending troubling messages to Kirby’s mother-in-law and brother.
Three days later, Malin was arrested on the charge of making felony criminal threats. A restraining order was filed, and Malin was released on a $50,000 bond. The investigation is still ongoing, but there is a court date scheduled for July 2020.
