megan_dates_a_murder_suspect.jpg

As you may have read yesterday, all future airings of the VH1 show Megan Wants a Millionaire have been put on indefinite hiatus. The reason for this is that one of the contestants, Ryan Jenkins, is a suspect in the MURDER of his wife, Jasmine Fiore.

Whuuuuuut? Murder? You mean like in the scary movies? Basically. Jasmine Fiore’s body was found stuffed inside a suitcase, which itself was stuffed into a garbage can. Welcome to Yikes Town, Population: this story. That is fucking horrible (and horrifying). There are rumors that Jenkins was a finalist on the show (which has since been completely scrubbed from the Internet, which is also kind of creepy somehow, what with the way that scrubbing traces of something away is often how murder works), but that he did not win. Supposedly, soon after the show finished taping, he went to Las Vegas, where he met Jasmine Fiore, a swimsuit model (that part is in all the papers, must be important) and married her two days later.

Oh gosh. Now TMZ is reporting that authorities believe that Ryan Jenkins escaped to Canada. (By foot?) Oh gosh. Now TMZ is reporting that his final destination may be Honduras? (Probably not by foot, right?) SPECULATION MOST FOUL!

The point is, on last Sunday’s episode of Megan Wants a Millionaire, she went on a date with this guy! A future suspected murderer! Yikes! And I happened to have the episode on my DVR! Double yikes! The clip is after the jump!

For the most part it is pretty standard reality TV dating show stuff, but I think that you will admit that it is a little bit creepier (than normal reality TV dating show stuff) when you know that the man will later stuff a human body into a suitcase (maybe) and then escape into Canada on foot. Shivers!

  1. WTF?! I just wrote a huge comment on the Seth MacFarlane post, which apparently doesn’t exist anymore! There is a glitch in the Matrix!

  2. Megan wants a MURDERER???

    (sorry.)

    • Oh, god, welcome to the headline on every entertainment blog and checkout-lane mag from here to eternity. Damn you. *shakes fist*

    Megan must be pretty glad she didn’t choose that millionaire.

    • Dude, she could probably care less, she’s just pissed that the attention has now been taken off of her and her TV show. now she’s gonna have to go on TV drunk and in a bikini ALL OVER AGAIN! The nerve of some people to dismember their wives and stuff their bodies in a suitcase before fleeing to Canada! He could’ve at least waited until AFTER THE SEASON WAS OVER to do this! Hmmph!

      • actually, what you meant to say was that she could NOT care less.
        just saying.
        that’s like misusing literally, where you’re saying the exact opposite of what you mean to be saying.

  4. Maybe he just wanted to save money on airfare by using her as carry on, instead of getting her a tick. He may be a millionaire, but times are tough and airlines are ripping everyone off!

  5. Megan Want$ A Murderillionaire

  6. Can this be the worst show ever now? It was excelling in all the horrid categories that this sort of reality TV usually highlights, but this show was not satisfied. No, this show managed to upgrade the awful by featuring a man who was not content just killing his own soul on TV. I have more kinds of hate, fear, and disgust for this show than I have words to articulate.

  7. she sure has a nice laugh.

  8. Ryan Jenkins in the clip above: “I’ve got this in the bag.”
    No, Ryan, you’ve got it in the suitcase, you psycho killer!

    And I thought this Megan lady learned her lesson on Beauty and The Geek. She was supposed to be a changed woman… and a few years later, here we are.

  9. I love/hate/love that we gummers can make jokes about a scenario that involves a young woman being killed, because it also involves horrible reality show monsters. No. Wait. I think I just kinda hate it. :(

    In other news, FOX has indefinitely suspended production on their reality project So You Think You Can Fit Into This Suitcase? 2, which is, you know, ummm…. I didn’t even like Season One.

    American YIKES-O.

  12. I really hope “I’m hot, she’s hot” is not a common decision-making logic in determining relationship compatability. I fear it may be.

  13. Hey Creepy McRichGuy, just because “comme ci, comme ca” and “so far, so good” have the same cadence and number of syllables does not mean that they mean the same thing.

  14. If he’s “so James Bond” then why doesn’t he have a license to kill?

  15. She was so shocked by his future murder suspectness that she forgot to put on pants. Embarrassing!

  16. If a guy proposes to you two days after you met, while sober, and not on a reality show, then there’s something wrong here.
    Even in Vegas.

    • To be fair, I don’t think his sobriety levels were mentioned in the article. He

      Also, isn’t getting divorced in Nevada only slightly more difficult than getting a tattoo? Seriously, killing your wife and putting her in a suitcase seemed like the easiest option?

  17. Heard through the grapevine that she was a playboy model. Oh.

  18. I guess “Most Exclusive French Bistro in Los Angeles” sounds better than “Mediocre Strip Mall Fare in Studio City”.

  19. My first reaction to this news was horror and deep sadness. This was because the show was pulled and that he is in I love money 3 so they will probably pull that to. I am a horrible person.

    It get’s MUCH worse. I read that he was a contestant on, “I Love Money 3″, and that it has finished filming. Does this mean that the third installment of the the greatest reality show in history will never air?? I think this has now become a personal tragedy for all of us.

      oops, sorry dualistic missed your post. you are not a horrible person, you are a REASONABLE person who’s had something wonderful taken from him.



  21. Anyone else notice this?

    • nnawty  |   Posted on Aug 21st, 2009 0

      Yeah…one of them has red hair. And oh…one is a REAL FUCKING PERSON THAT WAS MURDERED and the other is just a stupid fuckng cartoon character. One word for you and the other ignorant people making light of this situation: COMPASSION

      • Ms. New Jersey  |   Posted on Aug 21st, 2009 +1

        Yikes – I wasn’t trying be “ignorant” – I was just pointing out that the first thing I thought of when I saw this girl’s picture was “Wow,she looks kinda like Jessica Rabbit”. Thought it was a pretty neutral comment – wasn’t trying to imply anything else.

  22. Not only was this guy also a contestant on “I Love Money 3″, but apparently he also WON. So what does one do after winning a trashy VH1 reality show? Why you celebrate by flying yourself to Las Vegas, get married to a Playboy “representative” (whatever that means), murder her a short time later, stuff her body in a suitcase, and flee to Canada, of course.

    If you think about it though the real victims in this case (besides the woman murdered, obviously) are Megan and the other contestants on “I Love Money 3″ who will sadly have to now find another way to embarrass themselves on national tv, and us the viewers who won’t be able to witness it. So sad…

    I can’t believe that people are actually bitching that a stupid reality show is being cancelled. There is a death of a person involved here people. It’s almost like that movie Untraceable, where people tune in to watch people die. Who really gives a fuck who Megan picked and if this guy was a winner or loser on her show or I Love Money. Is that all you people care about? As if Megan the Whore couldn’t really get a boyfriend/husband/millionaire on her own without TV. Exactly how many reality shows has she been on? I think when you’re on more then one it’s not reality anymore….it’s called acting. Adn why weren’t the promoters of the Megan Wants a Millionaire show more diligent in screening the contestant’s background? All I can say is Megan and everyone else in that house might have gotten lucky that he didn’t freak the fuck out and kill them all.

  24. Man, I had to go like 12 levels deep into the wikipedias to find out what all these shows were about.

    Aston Martin went to all the trouble of hiring a murderer for their commercial but never mentioned trunk space or whether the engine can outrun the police.
