Last week on the second season finale of A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila
, Tila chose Kristy, but Kristy chose to say “No.” Tila Tequila
was left crying, asking why she keeps making mistakes and failing to find love. Tonight it's reunion time for the final three, which will provide three different and exciting confrontations.
Ryan Stout is back, hosting a reunion special after taking last week off. The finale was taped two months ago, and this is the first time the final three are all back together. Bo Kunkle
is introduced as a former high school football coach when he comes out. The school board had problems with Bo appearing on A Shot at Love
and he was let go upon returning.
Bo doesn't completely regret the tattoo, he only regrets that it's so big and gaudy. He says that while he was upset he wasn't chosen, he understands and approves of Kristy's decision, especially if she wasn't completely sure.
comes out and explains that she got along with Tila so well and questioned whether the fact that they had so much in common made them better friends or lovers. Ryan asks about the difference between having a relationship with a man and a woman, and Kristy says men are simple and women are complicated. Kristy didn't want to become another phony reality TV couple, and not only does she love her star tattoo, but her whole family got matching tattoos.
Now it's time for the Bo and Kristy reunion and they're like brother and sister, though Bo reveals the thought of faux incest may have passed through his mind. It's weird that I'm actually liking both of these people. Kristy apologizes to Bo because she feels like she took his shot at love away from him. Bo feels no need for an apology, because either way, Tila didn't choose him. He's not sure if he would've accepted being Tila's second choice, though he says he would've liked to find out if it could've worked.
Next is the Bo and Tila reunion. Ryan asks her why she didn't choose Bo, stealing Bo's thunder. She explains that she thought their connection was mostly based on sympathy for him being hurt, so she wasn't sure the passion was genuine. He is adamant about his question, and she falters on the answer, then tries shifting the sympathy to her because of what happened with Kristy. She doesn't seem to understand the difference between dating in the real world and dating on a reality show, but Bo does.
Finally, we get the long-awaited Kristy-Tila showdown. Tila comes out looking PISSED! Tila is angry at Kristy for not knowing she'd fall in love before coming on the show, which makes so little sense. Kristy explains things rationally and Tila calls her fake. Tila says Kristy just wants to be on TV and doesn't know who she is. Or so says the bisexual MySpace queen who has starred on two seasons of a reality dating show.
Kristy adds that she did to Tila what Tila did to Bo. If Kristy really is a faker, then she's a pretty good actress, because I believe her a lot more than the constantly crying Tila Tequila. Tila says Bo had nothing to do with the two of them, which is idiotic and illustrates how little Tila truly understands the premise of her own show.
In the end, Ryan defends Kristy's point by emphasizing that they only had four solo dates, which isn't really enough time to determine that you've found your soul mate. Kristy thought she'd have more time, and Tila keeps saying she knew exactly what the show was, stating they were together for 35 days. Is that really a pro argument, saying that you should be able to know that you want to spend the rest of your life with someone after a little more than a month? Tila starts cursing and then storms off in a snit fit. Ryan just sits their, awkwardly, then he ends the show. Thus ends A Shot at Love 2 with Tila Tequila
