ila's real last name is Nguyen. Talk about a confused individual with a bizarre life so far- Nguyen was born in Singapore, after her family emigrated from Vietnam, after the Vietnam War. When Nguyen was age one, she and her family moved to Alief, a suburb of Houston, where they lived until they were admitted to a gated community run by a strict Buddhist temple. The family left the community when Nguyen was eight. As soon as she entered middle school, Nguyen developed a tomboy attitude (from strict Buddhist teachings to tomboy?) and got in fights (what a sweetheart!). Her behavior eventually got her sent to a boarding school for six months (not hardly enough) before being transferred to another school. As soon as she reached high school, she used her sister's identification card (theft, Tila, or with sister dear's encouragement?) to enter nightclubs, where she began recreational drug use (oh, yummy, yummy- here's a good role model for all you teeny-boppers watching MiniBrainTv)and joined a gang (oh how innocent she is...). In an interview with Import Tuner, Nguyen said she had been searching for a sense of identity: "I was really confused then, 'cause at first I thought I was black, then I thought I was Hispanic and joined a cholo gang". (A Vietnamese born in Singapore, in a Buddhist-run gated community in Texas of all places, thinking she's black, then Hispanic, then joins a gang? Real intelligence here...especially joining a gang to "find herself".) Later she made some friends outside the gang who briefly helped turn her life around, however her past caught up with her, and she fled to Queens, New York at the age of sixteen.********* Now, this was from Wikipedia, not me, but you get enough of the drift. The show sucks, not only because it is yet another overdose of angst, failure, tears, fights, all about another "who cares?" subject matter, but imagine all the idiots who are deadening their gray matter by repeatedly sitting thru this charade. The house looks like it's Hef's old party room, the "contestants" are largely sorry individuals, made to look even more pathetic than they already were, & Tila Nguyen (Tequila, yeah, right!) is full of smiles, false hopes, short, cute but dumber than the show, & if you look around the internet you can easily find naughty photos of her as Nguyen, apparently before somebody decided to hide her sorry (already, even though short) past. Her "concern" for the guy who went for the ambulance ride was a hoot. Ditto her standing idly by when various fights broke out. (Oh me, oh my- whatever could have caused this!) I confess to seeing 2 sorry episodes, not knowing it was a ratings sweep month "Miniseries", apparently. MTV has long been known to me by its real designation for all its loyal viewers- MiniBrainTv, 'cause that's what's required to watch the garbage spewed from it- this is a prime example of current rotten excuse for American TV. Makes Gilligan's Island & The Beverly Hillbillies look like Nature & Nova. Tila, I wouldn't want you for anything. See a shrink if you're still confused. "Contestants", leave now, never admit having been there- find a real person to find true love with. Show creators/writers/et al, give it up. You're probably the same morons who gave us those swimming images on what became called "music videos". Ruined movies, TV series... look at a John Ford film sometime- he would tell you to never move the camera. You idiots did the exact opposite, like maybe you were/are on drugs. Speaking of drugs- recreational, Tila? Try softball, volleyball, badminton, swimming... that's recreation. Love, by the way, is something a totally mixed-up person such as yourself could never hope to find. It isn't found thru grotesque contests involving lame sorry individuals on TV. Certainly not by yo-yos eating testicles or whatever the idiots were upchucking! Congrats to MiniBrainTv execs for pulling a new low in shows- you've sunk lower than the Titanic with this sub-teen tripe! Jerry Springer must have thought this one up.
Reality TV has never been my favorite form of television, but with the writer strike that had been going on it was really the only thing to watch. Tila Tequila is one of the most annoying bachelor shows there is to date. I liked the Bisexual spin- only if Tila was ACTUALLY a bisexual. You can tell she isn't. Not only that but everything in this show is scripted, and I don't expect it not to be, because all Reality TV is scripted once and awhile, but not this one. This is 100% scripted. Tila's acting is so painful to watch it makes me want to gouge my eyes out with a toothpick. Whoever watches this should be ASHAMED of themselves. Don't give this show a reason to have a 3rd season.
Tila is hot! Tila is beautiful and her show lets America know that you can be who you are and be accepted. I hold high regard for Tila in that she shows integrity with her inner self being and to America. I would like to see more drama because who does not like a little drama in their life? Besides, anyone who wins a shot at love with Tila Tequila will be very lucky. She seems like a genuine person and hopefully she finds that special companion (even if it's temporary). I hope this show and subsequent shows involve Tila Tequila.
This is a reality show where tila tequila announces she is bisexual and bring a bunch of straight men and lesbain women together.she gets to know them all and in the end hopefully she'll know if she likes men or women better.
this show is great....not like other reality shows....such as the hills where they put a bunch of dumb blondes in a room and watch them fight.STUPID!
this is real, and tila's going though something every girl goes though.the tough choice between guys and girls.plus tila's HOT! On Top of that... all the fights, arguement,and sluts...are real.it's a coll, unscripted show.it makes even me,rethink my sexuality. Girls of course are...beautiful, sexual, soft ect...but every women needs the sex from a man, there rough hands, their sertain touch...there words...ect. i strongly strongly suggest you watch this show. its fun, interesting,,and dare i say...hot.
the show is about a bisexual trying to decide if it wants a lesbian or a guy. I can not even believe it is even on. This is so stupid I can't even talk about it.I hate everything about the show.I only gave it 1.1 because, well even I don't know why! Man, this is truly a waste of time. I will never watch this show.The entire hour it's on I just want to kill myself.someone please just take this waste of energy off tv, please!!! Tila taqila, what kind of name is that, it sounds like a d*mn drink! Lord help us all.
This show is truely like a car accident, you want to look away, but something makes you look. Over and over again. It is possibly the worst idea for a show, true love should not need to be tested by making your suitors go to ridiculous feats. It is almost like BigBrother meets the Bachlor but there its all centered around love. Some how, however, ever since my room mates were watching it one night I find myself watching every episode, having a favorite. Yet I mock the plot of the show. I don't want to watch it, I just am strangely drawn to it.
I'm not one to wach these shows at all/EVER. I have an 18 yr old daughter that showed it to me and now I have got involved in the drama of it all. It makes me sad to think that there are people out there truly looking for love and now have to openly complete for it for our own TV pleasure. I hope that in the end each one gains some sort of positive life experience in this strange atmosphere.
Good luck to all and for me the best person is Danny for Tila. I could see them having more than passion between them but also caring bond.
The show was very entertaining. It is one of the most entertaining reality shows i have seen in a long time in fact. The concept wasnt all that new but the bisexual twist put a new spin on things. The drama seemed totally authentic. It didnt hurt that they were fighting over the smoking hot tila tequila. In the end she seems to have actually TRULY found love. This is definitly a rare occurence in this genre of tv shows. I would definitly recomend this to someone for the simple fact that its just pure fun and enjoyment to watch.
The last episode of shot at love season two! I didn't like it very much.. She didn't pick the right person.. Brandon should of been the winner, just like in the first season, she didn't pick the right person.. and she askes what she is doing wrong?
Tila gets her heart broken again, the epiosde was good untill the ending when she choosed Kristy over Brandon, He deserved to win his shot at love with Tila. Kristy told her that it was her first time being in a relationship with a girl.. Tila should of took it from there, and try to see the more powerful side of Brandon, or she should of kept Brittaney who was more experience in a lesbain relationship.. hopefully if theres a season three she will pick the right one, And maybe even realise the mistakes in the past, to see that what she had was good.
I can't believe I watched this but I have to say I really enjoyed it. I feel it is bettter then "The Bachlor" by far. One of a kind. Wish they did more of this type of show. But I didn't really like Tila Tequila.
i mean, dont get me wrong, im the first to be like "WHOA too many contest reality shows" and yes i HATE that flavor of love had SO many spin offs or influences because its basically the same thing. but i love that tila atleast has both guys abd girls. not only that but tila has an unexplainable amount of LESS drama. they all love each other and its so great. Dani and Bobby are amazing. its obvious that they really care. Really if either of them win i'll be happy because they are amazing. im glad shes not afraid to have a show that proudly states she likes guys and girls. and shes right, love has no gender.
Tila Tequila, a.k.a. the MySpace friend whore, is now on TV, to many people's discontent. The advertising for this show basically made it sound like another trashy MTV show, i.e. The Real World or the god-awful I Love New York. However, it was not so bad. In fact, it was actually... gasp... interesting.
Tila Nguyen, surprise surprise, is bisexual. Another way of saying to men that she is very promiscuous. I mean, come on - we all know how many women claim to be "bisexual." So it seems either she has not much experience in this area, or more likely, she wants to make good ratings, because she spends 80% of the time making out with the girls but rarely even pecks the boys on the cheek. If that's not attention-seeking, I don't know what is.
Gladly, she does not come off as a typical ditz in her interview shorts. She does have a slight case of that annoying Asian accent though. But at times, she can be quite introspective.
Aside from the various annoying characters - Ashley, Domenico, Amanda, Marcus - the cast seems like a fairly normal mix. But the character whom I thought stood out most was Dani, the tomboy lesbian with a genuine disposition. She made it to the finals but ultimately lost her "shot at love," leaving Tila with the yawn-inducing and low-esteemed Bobby. A worthless ending, but it's about the journey, not the destination, right?
Anyway, we find out that months later, they have broken up and she (as well as Domenico) is already in the works of a carbon copy of the show, coming out later in 2008. I guess Tila Tequila really will be just another reality TV wash-up.
A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila is a TV show in which I thought i'd never watch in a million years. On the second episode I started to watch it and now I like it. Tila Tequila is hot. I love the heaven and hell episode. Domenico, Brandi, Amanda, Michael and Vanessa are the 5 worst housemates. Bobby won A shot at love. Who came second?? If you lokk up Tila Tequila on YouTube you will find her doing a song called I Love U. It's a really good song. Tila Tequila was once Playboy Cyber Girl of The Week.
The show A Shot of Love was a thrill seeking show. It keeps you in supence of not knowing what will happen next.Wow what a ending. I was shocked to see the final end. Dani deserved a shot at love.......
Dani needs to be brought back and have a show of her own. So that she can find the love that she deserves and seeks to feel. Dani you are a awesome person dont let this get you down. you will find someone brillant and as sexy like you.. awesome Dani needs a show of her own with the most sexy women including Brandy...So that she can find her shot at love...I think that Brandy and Dani besides Tilla will make a awesome connection. How do you like that word Awesome Dani..Cheer up I was juust as shocked as you were..
What can you say about the lovely Tila Tequila? Not much. She mysteriously vanishes from the eye of her love competitors, only appearing at announcements. That is love.
This is a show not only derogatorily exploiting Bisexuals, but also shows the twisted nature of our beloved Tila.
But this show is addictive! You can't help but root for your favorites, and you can't help but feel disappointed when your favorite has to go home. Unlike other dating shows, like with Bret Michaels, New York, or Flavor Flav, Tila's competitors seem very real. (This could also be a compliment to their acting) I love this show, but you won't see me showing it to my mom anytime soon!
Being a huge fan of reality TV dating shows, this show is the ultimate. The only thing that this show is lacking is decent challenges, but in the end who cares? No matter what the challenges are and how stupid they may be it does not matter in the end. In the end it is always up to the bachelorette to make the final decision, whether the person won the challenge or not. This is the ULTIMATE dating show! There had been no other show that combines a battle of the sexes along with an extreme battle for love. The MySpace star, Tila Tequila, is the perfect person to begin the new era of bisexual dating shows. She is very sexy, almost porn star-ish, and seems to still maintain some essences of class. Her lack of clothing in every episode would leave any straight guy or lesbian girls or bisexual girls drooling. Everybody wants in on this bachelorette's heart. By far this show is extremely entertaining, between the catfights, the sexual tension, and physical fights. No drama compares to the dramatic effects in this show, the new twist on the typical dating show brings in new ideas to all reality dating TV and TV in general. Thank you MTV!
i love this show, but i love Dani the most. She is fanastic. Tila Tequila you better treat her right. i'm not threatening by saying that i am just saying that you should choose Dani over Bobby or Amanda. I LOVE YOU DANI!!
A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila is an amazingly awesome show. Seriously I would really watch it every hour on the hour. I love Dani she is awesome. I love how she calls herself futch its great. She lives where my cousin does. And she is into the same sports as I am. And hey our last names are the same. I am straight so far in life but you know I'm only 14 going on 15 in four months. So really I can turn gay anytime that I want. I wasn't really into that, until I saw Dani in the first episode in this excellent reality show. When I get older I wish to meet her in person someday. Somehow, I hope I will. It is my # 1 dream from now on. Like, if she wins Tila's heart but it doesn't work out I want to be known by her. We are so much alike I couldn't believe it when I watched her first episode. I knew from the first time I laid my big blue eyes on her big brown eyes, and my heart meet her personality that it could work. Or just a real good friendship could. I don't have all that many friends at school and I hope to meet Danni someday and finally find that she would be my #1 the best no doubt about it. Dani is the most awesome laid back, shy romantic, tomboyish, lovely women I have ever, ever seen in my life. Ok so this may sound a little korny now but just wait and you'll see what I really can do and what I can say to get you all to like me. Someday, i wish, hope, want, and wish some more that this fate may be met. I love you Dani you are the greatest. love you Rebecca Campbell
How can I sum up this show in a few words... Oh heres a few- disgusting, stupid, unoriginal, weird, creepy. These are just a few to describe a shot at love with tila tequila. Now I hate almost all reality shows but this one by far is the worse on out there. It proves how far MTV has devolved. Why air this filth. Some sick guy at MTV said this "OH I know lets air a not even hot girl making out with guys... AND girls" The really sad part is that I dont think this is even real. Take my advise change the channel.
I have nothing against bisexuality or homosexuality, but what is she even famous for? Myspace? Just because you're famous on myspace doesn't mean you can go out and have you're own tv show or make or own songs. Sometimes reality tv shows can be good, but this is a big waste of time. It's okay if someone wants to see if their more attracted to males or females, but who would wanna watch a show about it? I don't understand why there would even be another season to this. I just hope that MTV comes up with a good idea. And soon.
just like flavor of love, i love new york, and rock of love comes another show like the others,a shot at love with Tila Tequila. Another stupid-love reality show? change the channel, futheremore the twist is that Tila is bisexual which is the first in a love reality show. This show is filled with challenges like the rest which determines who goes home. I say that this show sucks because Tila is not serious and dosent know what she wants. i absolutley think that they should not have a second season. i really think they should not. the only reason why they are to doin that is because since it got higher ratings and more money, they want more.in the end of the show, tila chose the male and they broke yup, thats why they are creating a new season of a shot of love with tila tequilla.
The supreme show on narcissm and bizarre human behaviors. This show is fascinating because it's a train wreck in the making. Tila Tequila screens fellow narcissists for a "shot at love" and proves that personality disorders entertain.
It's not because Tila Tequila is a knock out. With all the competition out there she's not, she's a little above average at best, but she's marketing her wares well and finding success. That's intriguing and one has to admire her for her tenacity.
Her narcissm is what makes the show intriguing. It's not that we don't expect it from the hard life she's endured before fame, but it's how she tries to use shock value to separate herself from the usual Bankok hooker persona, is interesting. There is a sweet side to her personality, when she's touched sometimes and this becomes addictive because of the contrast between the hooker mentality and the sweetness, but it lasts about a half a second, before she plays mindfck games with her suitors. Her tendency to judge parents as straight laced because they don't march their secret perversions out on their shoulder is fascinating. She gives the worldly granny a lap dance, and granny steals the show with her incredible intuitiveness about the girl, which is never revealed. She makes sexual comments about the rich boy in front of his folks to demonstrate her need to control every situation, which holds us as we realize how out of control her life really is and why she needs to do this. It makes you feel for her but beyond that, it draws you in.
Tila Tequila is a marketing wonder. She's got all the right stuff for a youthful marketing campaign. I wonder how well she'll fare with age. That will be Ms. Tequila's real testament to stardom.
I have no idea why I love this show so much! It is one of the dumbest shows ever. The people they cast are weird and funny and some are a-holes. I had never heard of Tila Tequila until my cousin told me about this show and I was hooked on it. What I don't get is why all these people love her so much. She has a weird laugh and her songs aren't that great and yet they're all over her. Everyone is heartbroken when they lose their shot at love but you'd think they'd be happy. At first I loved the show because I found it more legit than others like Flavor of Love and I love New York but then after a couple of months after the first season ends she's single again! Even after that I still watched the second season, something tells me that I'm going to be on A Shot of Love 7!
love this show. Saw it when it frist aired on tv. I thought it was funny. Its had a lot of drama and fights. The best thing is them doing anything to try and win her heart.I like this season more than the secound seaseon because this one had more love parts and drama and better fights. I would do all the things they did to try and win a girl heart.I thought she was going to chose danny but at the end she pick bobby. He look like he just did the show to be on tv. I like when she said You still have a shot love and when she says sorry but you shot at love ended. Love this show
