"A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila," — MTV's bisexual dating show featuring MySpace phenomenon Tila Tequila — was ratings gold, giving the network its highest rated series since August 2005 (the season finale, in which Tila selected Bobby Banhart, was the network's most-watched broadcast since November 2002).
Riding on the success of the first season, Variety reports, MTV is planning 10 new episodes of "A Shot at Love" for the spring, where Tila will, again, search for love among lesbian women and straight guys.
But where does that leave Bobby, who Tila declared she was "in love with" in the dramatic season finale? On Monday night's MTV New Year Eve broadcast, Tila announced that Bobby had dumped her! However, Bobby, for his part, is claiming that Tila ditched him after the reunion show was filmed.
In a MySpace bulletin, Bobby told friends, "she never called me after the last show and no one would give me her number so pretty much I feel like and ass but we are not 2gather u cant have a realationship bye urself ya know."
What do you think? Did MTV pressure Tila to call it off so they could film another season of the show, or is Tila telling the truth when she claims that Bobby "couldn't handle the schedule" of dating a "celebrity"?
