American contestant on a TV game show called Big Brother, a show set in "real time." It is not scripted and is not intended for younger audiences as the language and situations have the spontaneity of real life. Ten young adults, strangers to each other, were selected to live for three months in a closed environment in order to observe their interaction, entering their Big Brother house on 7/04/2000. After voting one of their housemates off every week, the last remaining contestant wins $500,000 on 9/30/2000.

William is a 27-year-old Youth Counselor, 6' 1", 198 lbs.

He was named one of Philly's best high-school basketball players and he still enjoys the game. He is currently an applicant to Temple University, where he intends to major in urban studies.

A man of many interests, William is equally content to spend his leisure hours on a basketball court or in front of a chessboard. (He'll also, however, always find time for some good-natured flirting.) Traveling the streets of Philadelphia, you could catch up with William at several of his favorite local haunts, including the Salaam barber shop, the Pearl of Africa bookstore, the Reading Terminal Market and the Zanzibar Blue bar and restaurant.

William appreciates a vegetarian diet but is not ready to turn down a cheesesteak. He ranks "The Matrix" among his favorite films, alongside "Malcolm X." On his bookshelf, you'll find Sam Greenlee's "The Spook Who Sat By the Door" and The Bible.

When it's time to get away from his hometown, William likes to stay in the East, opting for vacations in either Harlem or Atlanta.

Voted out of the house early in the game, the first to go, he revealed to the media that during the selection process, he had hidden his ties to the controversial black minister Khalid Abdul Muhammad. He hopes that the publicity he gained during his Big Brother experience will lead to work in films.

Magazines later gave his name as Will Mega, apparently his screen name. He had lectured on campuses on activism and was a guest on a show with Queen Latifah 11/02/2000.
