Singapore-born, Houston-raised Tila “Tequila” Nguyen has become a pop culture sensation. She is one of the most popular personalities in cyberspace, breaking records on MySpace, with a record breaking 1.4 million friends, as well as Facebook.
Raised in a Buddhist temple, the Vietnamese teenager soon rebelled against her strict upbringing, developing into an outspoken tomboy before being discovered by international magazine editors. Since then, this Texan beauty has graced the covers of numerous magazines including Maxim UK and Stuff, was listed on Maxim Magazine’s “Hot 100” list, and has been featured in Rolling Stone’s “Hot Issue”.
A versatile artist, Tila has made numerous television and film appearances, including a cameo opposite Adam Sandler in the Universal Pictures feature I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry (2007). Her “Tequila” nickname originates from a near fatal drinking experience. Ironically, Tila is allergic to alcohol.
By chance, Tila was discovered at a mall by a Playboy scout right after graduating from high school. She was skeptical at first, but then accepted the offer and moved out to West Hollywood.
She is now a singer, actress, and the most friended person on social media.
