Sixteen straight guys and sixteen lesbians vie for the heart of cyber-hottie Tila Tequila? but it all starts off as a secret. When the two groups learn about one another?s presence, a full-on battle of the sexes is launche... more »d. The prize up for grabs is Ms. Tila Tequila, the hottest thing to hit the internet since Google. With more than two million friends online, she?s the most popular girl in the history of MySpace. Having spent the past four years focused solely on building her music/modeling/MySpace career, Tila is finally ready to get serious about finding someone to get serious with. The only catch? she isn?t sure if she wants a relationship with a man or a woman. It won?t be easy: Tila may be a tiny, small-town girl from Texas, but she knows how to get what she wants. Pair that with very eligible bachelors and amazing lesbians all living together under one roof? Let the jealousy, hookups, and fun begin!« less
"There may be a few added scenes, but for all intent and purpose the DVD episodes are the same and just as censored as when they were shown on MTV. If you're looking for an uncensored version of the show, like the Flavor of Love DVD, you won't find it here."

"What do I mean by that? I mean this show is a farce. MTV tells all of the morons that watch their idiotic network (that no longer has any connection to music) that Tila Tequila is this hot commodity. Have any of you really looked at this haggard supertramp? Tattoos on her biceps, slightly below average looks, no education, no class... come on. If that's what you want head to Times Square."
The highest rated show on MTV in years

"The highest rated show on MTV in years, "A shot at love" is a reality dating show with a twist. Usually the bachelor/ette on these is overseeing a gaggle of suitors trying to win his or her attention. The twist here is that Telia, a rapper/actress/internet celebrity is bisexual and willing to consider a male or female partner.
Because the suitors are competing across genders this throws off everyone's game. I mean as a guy, I know what the rules are when competing against another guy for a woman's atteniton, but do the same rules hold when the competion isn't a guy? Who knows and that adds the fresh twist to this.
As teams and indivduals the suitors compete in a rediculous series of contests, such as who can eat the most bull genitals, who can rub the most melted chocolate on their bodies etc , with the prize being alone time with Tila.
Each episode ends with the traditional elimination ceremoney and these rapidly became infamous in pop culture for the responses of some rejected suitors.
As a guilty pleasure this is a fun watch. One of those that will probably have you saying "Why am I watching this this?" but you still won't reach for the remote to turn it off.
If there is a down side, and why I only give it 3 stars? Look at the title. "First season" before they even finished airing the first season, they were casting the second season which really makes you call into question whether Tila is more concerned with finding fame for herself than love."
Tila should have stuck to myspace

"This show is complete garbage. Ok ill admit, I've watched episodes from time to time, because it is entertaining if nothing else, to watch these people make complete fools of themselves, and to see Tila fall "in love" (please!) but seriously...do these people have no morals whatsoever? Now I'm no saint by any means, but I can't help but cringe when I see the actions of some of these people. Is this what people will really resort to for their five minutes of fame? And an even better question...do these people HAVE parents? And really...its one thing to watch this show while its on TV, but there's people out there who actually purchase the DVDs?
Now I may seem a bit hypocritcal because I am a fan of some reality shows such as "Laguna Beach" and "The Hills" where the characters will sometimes do questionable things, but I feel there's a difference between reality shows like that (they are really more a teen drama that they for some reason felt like slapping a reality show sticker on) and reality dating shows.
Now I wouldn't go so far as to say that this show is as bad as MTV's "My Super Sweet Sixteen" (I don't think anything can top a show about a bunch of spoiled kids whining about how they deserve everything their hearts desire) but when it comes down to it, "a shot at love with tila tequila" is just another reason for why so many countries hate americans"

"It is entertainment, simple. Yes it is fun to watch these people make fools of themselves. It is fun to see the drama. Sure it is staged just like professional wrestling, but it is still fun. I give it 4 stars for entertainment, but it is not completely uncensored... The best parts of the video (the ladies) are still censored. I like how one reviewer put it... Who doesn't like seeing two hot women making out?... That is exactly the appeal of this series. Have fun!"
