Tila Tequila (a.k.a. Tila Nguyen) is a Stuff and Maxim model and former host of Fuse TV's Pants-Off Dance-Off whose biggest claim to fame is having "the most friends in the history of Myspace." While Tequila has already parlayed her Internet stardom into numerous TV and magazine appearances and a recording contract with will.i.am's music group, now she's being enshrined next to such luminaries as Flavor Flav, Bret Michaels, and New York with her own MTV dating show, A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila, bowing this October. Like all post-Bachelor dating shows, Shot At Love will feature contestants being put through a series of humiliating competitions in order to win Tequila's favor, but with one twist: Since Tequila is bisexual, she'll be choosing her suitors from both straight men and lesbians. Finally, a chance to prove that lesbians can be just as shallow and stupid as everyone else.
Also, the show is apparently the first part of MTV's new "mission" to capture the Myspace demographic...guess we finally know what the "M" stands for now.
