VH1 Stops 'Megan Wants A Millionaire' Following Murder


The network confirms that murder suspect Ryan Jenkins is a contestant of the reality show and that under such circumstances, they must put the brake in airing further episodes.

On the heels of a homicide case involving a contestant of the show, VH1 has announced that it will stop airing "Megan Wants A Millionaire" until further notice. In a statement released on Wednesday, August 19, the network said, "Given the unfortunate circumstances, VH1 has postponed any future airings. This is a tragic situation and our thoughts go out to the victim's family."

Ryan Jenkins is one of the contestants of the dating reality show who was suspected of murdering a 28-year-old swimsuit model named Jasmine Fiore. He becomes a person of interest to the police after Jasmine's body was found stuffed in a suitcase and dumped in a trash bin in Buena Park, California last weekend.

A 32-year-old investment banker, Ryan joined the competition earlier this year and appears in three episodes. The production was completed in March and it began airing on August 2. As a result of the incident, all information regarding the show have been removed from the official site.

Ironically, Ryan is also a contestant of VH1's other show "I Love Money" season 3. The network has not made a comment about this but TMZ reported that there is a chance it may not air at all because Ryan has allegedly told his friends that he was a winner of the show.

Ryan who is said marrying Jasmine recently in Las Vegas reported the model's disappearance on Saturday, August 15 but has since gone missing himself. Police have launched an international manhunt, narrowing the possibility that he may be heading to Canadian border with his BMW X5 or Jasmine's 1007 Mercedes CL S550.

    A tragedy the poor girl was found murdered, but it is to be expected when such amoral crap airs on TV. People will do anything to be famous, as Mr. Decapitation proved very grimly. I'm glad they canceled that show and I hope they cancel all others like them. Shut down the Devil Sound, ma bredren.

    What i dont under stand is why a prenup agreement was even menchened in the first place if he was already married. Didnt he tell Megan that he needed to get married to stay here, and thats when told her he would not make her saign a prenup. I am confussed....! Wasnt he married to this model....?

    why is everyone going 'thank god it wasn't megan!'? who cares if it was megan or not, a human being is DEAD! i don't think you people grasp that, BRUTALLY MURDERED BY HER HUSBAND!! you know how they identified her body?! by her implants, he cut off her fingers and tore out all of her teeth... i pray for her family and now they can have some peace since he committed suicide [though his feet were on the ground after hanging himself, seems a bit fishy]

    While this is horrible. How on earth did they expect a show based on such low morals to turn out well in the first place? She was a golddigger. Was her family proud of this?
