Born in Singapore, Tila's family moved to the suburbs of Houston, Texas, when she was only a year old. While visiting a Houston mall one day when she was eighteen, Tila was discovered by a Playboy scout who offered her a chance to model for the magazine. She then relocated to southern California and in 2002 she was featured as a Playboy Cyber Girl of the week and eventually the first Asian Cyber Girl of the month.
