MTV’s getting even more gay – and in the good way. The “music” network will soon air model and singer Tila Tequila’s dating show, the pun-tastic A Shot At Love.
For those of you not familiar with Ms. Tequila’s work, the overly ripe 25-year old made a name for herself in lad mags like Stuff and Maxim, as well as hosting Pants Off Dance Off. And like all good female fantasies, Tequila’s got a taste for the titties – and the dick, too. So, what’s a girl to do? Test them all out, of course!
A Shot at Love will reportedly follow Tequila as she whittles down a group of 32 suitors — 16 straight men and 16 gay women — who will live together and compete against one another in challenges to win her heart.
“Tila Tequila made a name for herself by doing things her way, captivating legions of fans online, both men and women,” [said] Tony DiSanto, MTV’s executive vice president of series development and programming… “The show is a roller-coaster ride of drama, conflict and emotion, busting stereotypes and challenging the norm.”
Hmm, the show will only “challenge the norm” if Tequila ends up with a boy. If not, it’s just a ratings ploy. Still, it’s somewhat refreshing to see some queer loving up on the television.
