Bisexual bombshell Tila Tequila stars in this MTV reality show, which finds a group of hopeful suitors -- half men, half women -- competing in a "bi-athlon" and facing other challenges, all to prove their love and win the heart of the sultry siren. As Tequila eliminates contestants each week, the stakes get higher and the challenges get riskier -- from wrestling in gelatin and riding a mechanical bull to getting tattoos and walking on glass.

Summary of Season 1 (2007) - 3 discs

Sexy straight men and lesbians compete for bisexual beauty Tila Tequila's affection in this provocative reality show from MTV. The contestants try to win over Tila -- who's looking for true love but isn't sure whether she'll find it with a man or a woman. At first, the guys and girls aren't aware that they're competing against members of the opposite sex, but things heat up when Tila reveals her attraction to both genders.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this hyper-sexualized reality dating series -- in which both men and women compete for the affections of Internet celebrity Tila Tequila -- openly discusses bisexuality and lesbianism. It pits lesbians against straight men and exploits both gender and homophobic stereotypes. Cast members fight, drink (a lot), and swear (the strongest words are bleeped), and there's very strong sexual innuendo. All of that makes this show pretty iffy for anyone except adults who are able to recognize it as an intentionally over-the-top guilty pleasure.

Sexual Content

The show is all about dating and relationships -- heterosexual, homosexual (lesbian), and bisexual. Kissing, hugging, massaging, stripping, and pole dancing (occasional related nudity -- usually of women's breasts -- is blurred out). Participants share a communal bed. Discussions of virginity, threesomes, and other sexual practices, but actual acts -- other than making out -- aren't shown. Expressions like "silver stroke" and "douche bag" are sometimes heard. Opening credits include images of Tequila in sexually provocative positions; she has a tendency to wear tight/revealing clothes, too. Men are shown having their buttocks waxed (though their backsides aren't completely revealed).


Yelling, arguing, pushing, shoving, slapping, punching, and all-out brawling between cast members. During the opening credits, Tequila threatens to kill anyone who hurts her emotionally.


Words like "crap," "ass," and "bitch" are audible; stronger curse words like "s--t" and "f--k" are bleeped, as are the words "t-ts" and "penis."

Social Behavior

The series pits straight men against lesbian women and plays into gender and homophobic stereotypes. Lots of hyper-sexualized, hedonistic behavior. Tequila is Asian; the other participants are of various racial/ethnic backgrounds.


The show is a promotional vehicle for Tequila; her image is visible on featured magazine covers, in music videos, and online.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Drinking (both beer and hard alcohol) is featured prominently. Tila's stage name -- "Tequila" -- is an homage to the liquor. The show's logo features shot glasses.
