VH1 officially pulled Megan Wants a Millionaire off the air today after reports surfaced that one of the contestants, Ryan Alexander Jenkins, is the target of an international manhunt regarding the murder of former Playboy model and Vegas stripper Jasmine Fiore. Jenkins also is rumored to have won I Love Money 3 which most likely puts that show in jeopardy. People reports:
“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,” says a statement from the network.
According to some media reports, Jenkins won $250,000 on I Love Money, in March. At around the same time, Jenkins met Fiore at a strip club, and the two were married two days later – on March 18, according to the Clark County, Nev., Recorder’s Office (although Fiore’s mother told reporters she doesn’t believe a legitimate marriage took place.)
Jenkins and Fiore were living in Los Angeles at the time of the murder. Worrall says he knows little about the nature of their relationship – only that they were last seen together Friday evening at a poker tournament in San Diego.
According to TMZ, Fiore texted an ex-boyfriend that evening, offering to meet him in Las Vegas. Later that evening, the ex got another text from Fiore’s phone that said: “Suck it.” The site also reports that Jenkins was convicted in 2007 of assaulting his girlfriend at the time.
So murdering a stripper got one, if not two, VH1 reality shows canceled. That really the message we’re going with here? Because it’s probably not a good idea to romanticize something
that ends in somber looks on the groomsmen during your sister’s wedding not good. (WE MADE A PACT!)
NOTE: If you see this guy, call the police.
