Let's take a look at the differences between CBS' Big Brother Season 1 versus Season 2. We voted Season 2 as the best of the two. There was one houseguest who contributed to our decision and that is Will. He is a very interesting and unique character.
Demeanor & Intellect:
Classy & Educated Houseguest: The houseguests on Season 1 acted super classy, for the most part. They were all very articulate and most held college degrees. A college degree in 2000 most likely carried a different weight than it does now. Today we have tons of sources online in which we can self-educate.
Wild & Average Houseguest: The houseguests on Season 2 acted very wild (Amber jumping in the bed with Hardy on the first night; Nicole flirting with all the guys; and taking her top off in front of Kent; and the list goes on...) and their intellect level was average, except for Will.
Head of Household Intensity
No HOH: There wasn't any Head of Household contests on Season 1. They only completed tasks as a group for the food budget.
1st HOH Introduced: Season 2 introduced the first Head of Household contests by having one of the guest spin the wheel and name the houseguest who was a match to the label, for example, the "most talkative"... The later contests were more challenging.
Audience decided who was the winner and who was banished on Season 1. Houseguest nominated, and if there was a 4-way tie, then those 4 houseguest were up for banishment!
All evicted houseguests decided who was the winner on Season 2, and the two finalists were able to eliminate one vote. The evicted houseguests were not sequestered, so they could watch the show before deciding the winner. The current houseguests voted out the person evicted.
Season 1 had chickens. They also had a garden.
Season 2 had a dog.
No Veto for either season.
Both seasons had to use an old-fashioned ringer type of washer to wash clothes.
Smoking was allowed on both seasons (years were 2000 and 2001).

@CBSBigBrother Big Brother Season 2 winner was Will Kirby. He actually coined the phrase "showmance". Dr. Will Kirby is a Dermatologist. Born in Italy. He is 46 years old now.
He was the most interesting player on Season 2. He was upfront and honest with everyone when he stated his intentions in playing the game in a ruthless manner. He would state exactly what he planned to do and the reason why he was there. Even after sharing this insight, he still wasn't a player that was targeted by other houseguests!
He displayed a great personality, and a great sense of humor. He was very down-to-earth to be a doctor. Yes, he absolutely earned the title Evil Doctor, because he would share his wicked thoughts. He was good at developing a strategy and getting others to play into his hands. So far, he is hands down the best player ever on Big Brother.
Season 2 was filmed in 2001, and he was very comfortable showing his metro side. He likes to shave his entire body, and he also gave himself facials. Please don't be fooled by these words, because he showed that he is masculine. He also has a witness, Shannon! They dated for a short time after the show, but it didn't last.
Of course he won the $500,000 prize. He is known as a very controversial player, and generally hosts the discussion with Big Brother jury (except for Season 22 because of COVID 19). He did appear on the last few episodes as a next door neighbor for the remaining guests.
Will lives in Southern California, and he is a Dermatologist and an Associate Clinical Professor. He is married to Erin Brodie (For Love or Money two-time Champion), and they have two children, Cash and Scarlett. Yes, Cash :) Will is 44 years of age.
@CBSBigBrother Season 2 Nicole Nilson Schaffrich finished in second place. She was a Personal Chef from Atlanta. She was born in Pontiac, Michigan. She was 31 years when she entered the home in 2001. She was one of three who played the game really hard. Hardy and Nicole ran the house during the last half or so of the season. Ironically, their hard playing still didn't get them the $500,000 prize. Nicole was able to cash out with $50,000 in second place, despite the fact she was one of the first to be nominated for eviction.
Nicole was a big flirt on the season. Even though Hardy and Nicole said they are like brothers and sisters, I found their behavior more borderline flirtacious. She also liked to play mind games with Will. I believe she wanted attention from him, and he just wasn't interested in her. Near the end of the show, her husband sent air banners stating things about her behavior.
While Season 2 was completely opposite of Season 1, from classy to let it all hang out, in the end it added more drama. Nicole was very dramatic. She is one of those people, either you like her or you don't.
After the show, Nicole was a Radio DJ for WWWQ FM Radio. In 2003 she was a writer and producer for Reality Dish. She remarried to Dean Christner and lives in Roswell, Georgia. She is 50 years of age, and it is believed that she has two step sons.

@CBSBigBrother Season 2 Monica Bailey finished in 3rd place. Unlike the very first season of Big Brother, 3rd place didn't cash out like 3rd place on Season 1, which won $50,000.
Monica was a 40 year old Candy Store Manager from Brooklyn, NY when she competed in 2001. She was quiet and easy going, and got along with most of the other houseguests throughout most of the show, it wasn't until the last few episodes that she showed a different side. She exploded when the now deceased Kent Blackwelder triggered a negative response by her.
She was known for being honest and upfront, which was refreshing because of the played strategies. The filming of this season was in 2001, and unfortunately,Monica had a relative who was impacted by 9/11 (when the Islamist terrorist group Al-Quaeda attack against the United States, specifically New York World Trade Center.
She can be found on Facebook.

Sheryl Braxton was on Season 2 of Big Brother. When she entered the home in 2001, she was an Interior Decorator from Ponte Verda Beach, Florida. She was 43 years of age, and the second oldest for the season. She is now 61 years old. Sheryl was nominated by Mike Malin ('Mike Boogie"), in attempt to get Nicole Schaffrich out, but his plan backfired and Sheryl went home instead. After the show, Sheryl was diagnosed with cancer, and went into remission after chemotherapy treatment. Her Twitter and Website lists her profession in real estate. afforci.com
