Police search for VH1 reality star

'Megan' contestant involved in model murder

With one of its contestants sought for questioning in a murder investigation, VH1 has postponed plans to air any future episodes of nonscripted series “Megan Wants a Millionaire.”

Police are reportedly seeking to question Ryan Jenkins, the husband of model Jasmine Fiore. Fiore was reported missing by Jenkins on Saturday and found dead Tuesday. Jenkins was one of 17 competitors on “Megan,” which premiered Aug. 2 with the goal of finding model and reality series vet Megan Hauserman a man who would make her his trophy wife.

Jenkins reportedly married Fiore after he was eliminated from the show.

VH1 had broadcast three episodes of the Sunday night series.

“Ryan Jenkins was a contestant on ‘Megan Wants a Millionaire,’ an outside production, produced and owned by 51 Minds, that is licensed to VH1,” the cabler said in a statement. “The show completed production at the end of March. 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.”

An investigator said Wednesday that police have not had contact with Jenkins since he made the missing persons report.

“At this point, (Jenkins) is merely a person of interest, simply because of the suspiciousness of his disappearance. We can’t find him,” Buena Park (Calif.) police Lt. Gary Worrall told the Associated Press.

The website TMZ is also reporting that Jenkins was a contestant on another upcoming VH1 reality show, “I Love Money,” which has completed taping its third season but not yet aired. As a result of the investigation, that series could be postponed or shelved as well.
