The secret is out - Tila Tequila has come out of the closet and told the straight guys and lesbians vying for her affection that she's bisexual. It's a big deal for Tila, since she's never told anyone her big secret before, and she tells them that despite being attracted to both sexes she is only looking for one partner. Shocked, the two groups knew that the competition would be steep to get A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila, but they had no idea they'd be competing against each other and the opposite sex. The guys are excited about the possibilities, the girls are not. But now that the news is out in the open, everyone needs to step up their game in order to avoid being eliminated.
To find out which guys and which girls are really looking for true love, Tila has the two sexes mingle and get to know each other. While some of the girls get aggravated when the guys assume they aren't "really" lesbians, Vanessa and Brandi decide to use their sexuality to send some of the guys packing. When Italian stallion Domenico comments on Brandi's barely-there swimsuit, the two competitors start to argue. When Tila butts in to find out what's going on, the finger-pointing begins and Tila doesn't know who's telling the truth.
With the drama taken up a notch, Marcus pulls Tila aside and tells her he's ready to help her out by becoming a spy. But his scheme is interrupted when Domenico comes over to explain his actions to Tila. Marcus is ticked that Domenico is trying to steal his face time, so he pushes Domenico into the pool. When Ashley steps in and defends Domenico, things get out of hand as Marcus tries to push Ashley into the pool. The two end up brawling, getting pulled apart by MTV staffers. So far, the boys are being way more catty than the girls.
Despite being separated, Ashley and Marcus keep arguing. The other guys think their fight is making all the guys look like a bunch of boneheads. When Ashley and Marcus lunge at each other for round two, Rebecca pulls Tila aside for a heart-to-heart chat. Away from the chaos, Rebecca sympathizes with Tila's mixed emotions about coming out and the two end up sharing a moment and making out. Looks like the girls are scoring some big points right now!
While everyone else is getting used to the idea of competing against the opposite sex for A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila, Lala decides that she doesn't want to deal with all the drama and jets. Tila chases after her, but Lala insists that she isn't interested in a battle of the sexes and she's dead set on throwing in the towel. Tila tries to talk her into staying but it's no use, Lala wants out. With no hard feelings, Tila gives Lala a hug and sends her off.
After Lala leaves, Tila wants to make sure the rest of the competitors can handle the situation and know that her intentions are pure. Once she's assured that everyone's on board, she finally feels like the two groups are making an effort to get along. And that's when Tila decides to heat things up again with a little healthy competition.
Tila wants to see how far these guys and girls are willing to go to for A Shot at Love. Perched atop a lifeguard's chair, Tila tells the guys that to win her heart they have to know what a woman wants. But in order to get in touch with their feminine side, they have to walk a mile in women's shoes -- literally. The boys must choose from a selection of high heels and strut their stuff down the runway for Tila.
In pink feathered heels, Rob does a split, leaving him in pain on the red carpet. Showing off his "100% Italian Ass" speedos, Domenico looks like an old pro in pink pumps, making Tila think it's not the first time he's donned ladies' shoes. After Marcus does a backflip in his heels, he moons the lesbians looking on, leaving a bad impression.
Now it's time for the ladies to show what they're made of, as Tila says she wants a girl who's sensitive and strong. With that, Tila tells the girls to drop and give her 20. As the guys look on, grumbling about how their challenge was much harder, the girls stick together and do the 20 push-ups together -- lesbians unite!
At the end of the girls' challenge, Marcus smacks Sara's behind and Amanda calls him out on it. When Tila tries to find out what just happened, Marcus denies the allegations. But everyone saw him do it and he eventually apologizes.
As a reward for their hard work, Tila tells the guys and girls it's time to enjoy a foam party! But while they're having fun, they should also be looking for three poker chips at the bottom of the pool. Whoever finds the chips gets to spend some alone time with Tila, so everyone eagerly dives in and digs around... well, almost everyone. Momma's boy Michael B. admits he isn't really looking for a poker chip; he's having too much fun getting up close and personal with the girls!
After getting wet and wild, Rebecca, Eric and Eddie each score a chip, which means they'll spend some quality time with Tila. Inside, as Tila cuddles up with Rebecca, Eric asks which sex she prefers so far. Duh! Trying to give everyone a fair shake, though, Tila asks shy guy Eddie some questions. But Eddie, a virgin, loses points when he refuses to give Tila a kiss. After being dissed by Eddie, Tila decides to mack out with Rebecca as the boys look on. Then Tila gives Eric a little bit of love. When Tila gets up to leave, she gives Rebecca and Eric kisses but refuses Eddie's amorous advance, giving him a handshake instead.
At the end of the night, Tila must send four potential suitors home. Although she has a hard time deciding, she ultimately sends Grace, Eddie, Steffanie and Marcus packing, telling Marcus that all of his drama is so not worth the trouble. The remaining contestants get to move into the mansion with Tila for their Shot at Love.
