Over the ages, the question has been posed: in the battle of boy vs. girl, who will win? ForMTV’s Tila Tequila, the answer is clearly boy.
Last night, Tequila, bisexual Internet celebrity, chose 25-year old film student, Bobby Barnhart over female contender Dani Campbell in the finale of A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, MTV’s bisexual dating reality show.
For some this only serves to fuel the rumors that Tequila — whose real last name is Nguyen — was not as bisexual as she claimed to be. But if not, she sure made a good show of it — jilted Dani saying she “thought we had something real…a big connection.”
Tequila, a Singapore native, is a self-created Internet celebrity, her myspace page boasting more than 1.5 million friends. Her confrontational style and pinup-girl looks (in fact, she posed for Playboy.com) have made her overwhelmingly popular online. A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila was MTV’s #2 show this season, just behind The Hills.
Aside from model, reality TV star, and myspace diva, Tequila is an artist — a singer/rapper, whose work Time.com has calleda “sound track of a million parents’ dreams dying.” One thing’s for sure — whether or not MTV decides to run another season of A Shot at Love, this won’t be the last we’ll hear of Tila Tequila any time soon.
