Picking the Wrong Partner? September 7, 2007Posted by David Card in Media.
Since we’re talking about potential Internetz-to-realworld crossovers, please, god, don’t make this one a success.
- (MTV) has greenlit “A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila,” a reality-dating show featuring the titular star, whose MySpace profile is touted as having the most friends in the history of MySpace…Show is set up in the manner of “The Bachelor”: about 30 contestants will move into a house and be put through a set of competitions in a bid to win Tequila’s affections.
On the other hand, Viacom, some kind of an MTV-MySpace dating reality show would sound like a heaven-made shotgun wedding, even if Fox owns MySpace. (Despite the Variety headline, MySpace appears to have no role in the would-be Tequila show, unless I’m missing something.) You’re going with the wrong “star,” guys.
