Who is tila dating
The zany reality show starring bisexual Internet celebrity Tila Tequila is among the top 15 cable shows and has become MTV’s second most popular series, just behind Lauren Conrad and company on “The Hills,” according to numbers from Nielsen Media Research. In case you’re one of the few people who hasn’t seen or read a blog about “A Shot a Love,” the gist of the dating show is this: a 26-year-old My Space pinup searches for love “Bachelor”-style among 16 men and 16 women, who compete for alone time with her in over-the-top challenges – chocolate syrup wrestling, for example – and share one oversized bed. “It was kind of weird at first,” Tequila told The Associated Press during a recent telephone interview about filming the show. 18 at 10 p.m.), Tequila – whose real last name is Nguyen – will choose between Dani Campbell, a 29-year-old female firefighter from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Bobby Banhart, a 25-year-old male film student from Worchester, N. Tequila, who realized she was bisexual at age 11, says she’s still dating the person she selected when production on the seedy show ended earlier this year.
“Who would have ever thought I’d be the girl who does that for MTV? Then, at the end of each episode, she chirpily tells the non-eliminated contestants, “You still have a shot at love. She also doesn’t communicate with any of the contestants who didn’t earn one of the giant keys to her heart.
“She chased me down in the bathroom,” Tequila recalls. Beyond that, however, her role at the cable network is uncertain.The reality series premiered in 2007 and ran for two seasons, and saw 16 males and 16 females compete for her affection.Born in Singapore and raised in Texas, Tila has stripped off for sexy shoots with Playboy, Maxim and Stuff, and was the lead singer of bands Beyond Betty Jean and Jealousy before pursuing a solo career.A post on After Ellen.com, a site focusing on lesbian and bisexual women in the media that posts video commentary on the series, questioned whether Tequila was the ideal representative for bisexuals.
