Megan Wants A Millionaire: On Hold

at . Comments

This is what happens when one of the remaining contestants on a reality show becomes a suspected murderer.

Due to the ongoing manhunt for Ryan Jenkins - a finalist on Megan Wants A Millionaire that is considered a "person of interest" in the murder of his wife, Jasmine Fiore - VH1 has put the series on hold.

The network released the following statement last night:

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 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.
