I was flipping through the channels a few nights ago and I stumbled upon a new show on MTV called "A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila". I don't know if it was the good looking men standing around without shirts, the name Tequila, or the fact that she had a very big secret she was about to reveal, but I put the remote down, kicked back and got my first taste of the MySpace phenomenon known as Tila Tequila.
Tila Tequila (real name Tila Nguyen) was born in Singapore, but moved to the United States when she was the tender age of one. She's very attractive, has a pretty face, a very petite frame, large "assets", and bottled blonde hair. Somehow, the blonde hair on this girl with a Vietnamese heritage works.
Miss Tequila is a combination of rapper, model, singer, blogger, actress, basically, she's a fame whore. She is most famous for her massive social network of friends on MySpace. At last count she had over 1.5 million friends and her profile has been visited more than 50 million times. Tila has been on the covers of Penthouse, Maxim and Black Men magazines and she recently launched her own single on iTunes.
If this whole MTV thing doesn't work out, she could certainly give marketing seminars.
As if Tila wasn't famous enough, she recently launched her own online casino. Add that to the mix! Tila and her entourage traveled to Barcelona a few weeks ago to promote her new show and met with top poker and casino affiliates. She was on hand to discuss her love of poker and, of course, to gain more visibility. Tila's casino isn't available to U.S. residents, so we'll have to stick with more well known sites such as Ultimate Bet and PokerStars .
Tequila is to MySpace as Madonna was to the 80's. She's sassy, fresh and apparently not afraid to flaunt her sexuality. On her reality show, contestants vying for Tila's affections and living in the same house all sleep in one large bed together! It's the only bed in the house.
Oh, and in case you were wondering what Tila Tequila's secret is, well, she's bi-sexual, so contestants in the house are both male and female. How's that for cutting edge?
