VH1 Officially Cancels "Megan Wants A Millionaire" Off Air Following Accused Killer Contestant Ryan Jenkins' Death

The VH1 reality series "Megan Wants a Millionaire" has officially been canceled following the homicide and apparent suicide controversy of one of its contestants Ryan Jenkins.

Jenkins, 32, was found dead in a Canadian motel room on Sunday from an apparent suicide, which brought an end to an international manhunt for his search. He had been wanted for the murder of his wife, Jasmine Fiore, whose mutilated body was found stuffed in a suitcase in a trash bin.

He was one of the hopefuls for the hand of reality show veteran Megan Hauserman in the "Bachelorette"-style show, in which seventeen wealthy single men compete for her love. It had debuted on air on August 2, but had been postponed and eventually canceled altogether after the controversy.

51 Minds, the production company behind the show and another VH1 reality series "I Love Money 3," wherein Jenkins was reportedly also a cast member, has announced the two shows will not air anymore.

The producers said that they were not aware of Jenkins' record when they cast him on the show, adding that had they known about his past, they wouldn't have hired him.
