Megan Wants a Millionaire' star Ryan Alexander Jenkins eyed in murder of model Jasmine Fiore

A reality TV contestant being sought for questioning in the grisly murder of his swimsuit model ex-wife was accused of beating her before, court records revealed Wednesday.

Ryan Alexander Jenkins was charged in June with battery on Jasmine Fiore, who was found dead in a Dumpster on Saturday near Los Angeles.

Jenkins was charged with domestic abuse after he allegedly hit Fiore in the arm, Nevada court records say. He is awaiting a nonjury trial in December on the charges.

A contestant on the VH1 reality show "Megan Wants a Millionaire," Jenkins married the slain stunner in a quickie Las Vegas wedding in March, records show.

Fiore's mother pleaded for cops to track down Jenkins, who has been on the run since reporting Fiore missing over the weekend.

"I want to find this guy," said Lisa Lepore, Fiore's mom.

The heartbroken mom blasted Jenkins as a controlling type who was "insanely jealous."

"I never had good vibe with him," Lepore said. "They didn't get along. He's really cheap and just weird."

The mom said Fiore had the marriage annulled in May.

Jenkins, who previously served 15 months' probation for a 2007 assault on a woman in Canada, took off after reporting Fiore missing on Saturday - the same day she was found dead.

"He was the last person seen in the company ofour victim, in San Diego, at some sort of poker party," said Lt. Gary Worrall of the Buena Park, Calif., police, who described Jenkins as a "person of interest."

"We're characterizing the fact that we're not able to find him as suspicious," Worrall said.

Fiore, 26, was strangled and her nude body wasfound stuffed inside a suitcase by a bum looking for recyclables, cops said. She was identified on Tuesday.

Jenkins, a 32-year-old Canadian, is believed to have slapped the license plate from his BMW on Fiore's 2007 white Mercedes-Benz before heading north for the border.

TMZ.com reported that Jenkins flipped out after intercepting a text message to Fiore from her former flame.

"Suck it," Jenkins reportedly replied, using Fiore's phone, according to TMZ.com.

Fiore grew up a "wild child" in Santa Cruz, Calif., where she was raised by a hippie mom who insisted on being called "Spirit" and who lived - for a time - in the woods, a former work associate said.

"It's so sad because I knew this girl growing up," another family friend, Elizabeth Ngo, said. "She was so genuine. Everyone fell in love with her."

Fiore, who boasted 34DD-26-34 measurements and once appeared in an ad for Howard Stern's radio show, had recently changed her last name to Kinkade and moved to L.A. to launch a career as a personal trainer.

"She would walk into a room, and everybody would turn their head," Ngo said. "She remained good friends with all her ex-boyfriends, and they're all here in Los Angeles now, infuriated."

Jenkins' profile on VH1's site describes him as an investment banker from Calgary. He crassly claims that "he has left many amazing women in his life primarily because he wanted more women."

Right and because the loser got far in both shows they had to ditch them. :fiery: And VH1 you suck with this lame ass statement:

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.

Jasmine Fiore suspect Ryan Jenkins desperate for cash

There are many reasons someone might want to get their hands on $250,000, but when you're a "person of interest" in a murder case like Ryan Jenkins, it's probably because you're looking to make a quick getaway.

A source close to the production of the VH1 reality shows "Megan Wants a Millionaire" and "I Love Money" tells Zap2it that Jenkins went to 51 Minds -- the shows' production offices -- early this week begging for them to cut him a check. They didn't do it, but not from lack of trying on his part.
See other reality show stars in trouble.

VH1 has pulled all future airings of the show Jenkins is a finalist on, "Megan Wants a Millionaire." It also looks like it's unlikely that "I Love Money 3," which our source says Jenkins does indeed win, will ever see the light of day.

As for Jenkins relationship with victim Jasmine Fiore, according to an "I Love Money" insider Jenkins was overheard repeatedly on the phone with her during filming breaks having conversation that swung wildly between professions of eternal love to heated fights.
It's now suspected that Jenkins has fled the United States and returned to his native Canada, crossing the border by foot.

I totally agree with you on that. I just feel bad for Jasmine's family in that more people care about the reality shows being scrapped than Jasmine being killed. We can say "but we don't know Jasmine". True but we don't know the reality show contestants either yet we're peeved that VH1 has ditched plans to air them. For the record: I watch the reality shows, too. I just know that if I was a member of the Fiore family I wouldn't be pleased that the priority among TV viewers is that the shows featuring Jasmine's killer make it to the air.

Yes, he filmed two reality shows back-to-back.

Reality show contestant found dead in Canada motel

By JEREMY HAINSWORTH and ROB GILLIES (AP) – 6 minutes ago

HOPE, British Columbia — Reality show contestant Ryan Jenkins' life ended in a way that could have been scripted for TV: as police investigated the murder suspect's suicide at a secluded Canadian motel, word came Monday that a mysterious young woman had checked him in there.

Accused of the gruesome death of his ex-wife, a model whose body was so badly mutilated it had to be identified by her breast implants' serial numbers, Jenkins evaded a massive international manhunt for days as he crossed from California into his native Canada.
The dramatic end came at an isolated motel at the edge of British Columbia's mountainous interior, on the outskirts of Hope, a town known for its giant wooden carvings made with chainsaws and as the site of the first bloody Rambo movie.
On Sunday evening, police responded to a call from motel staff about a dead person, and then called investigators who were part of the manhunt for Jenkins, said Sgt. Duncan Pound of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police border integrity unit.
The manager of The Thunderbird Motel and his nephew said they found Jenkins hanging from the bar of a coat rack by a belt. They said a young woman had checked him in to the two-story inn surrounded by trees.
The 32-year-old real estate developer and investor was charged in California with first-degree murder Thursday after the dismembered body of Jasmine Fiore was found in a trash bin in Buena Park, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) southeast of Los Angeles.
Fiore's teeth had been pulled out and her fingers cut off, apparently to impede her identification. Investigators used the serial numbers on her breast implants to identify her, Orange County prosecutors said.
Kevin Walker, who manages the Thunderbird Motel, said Jenkins and the mystery woman arrived Thursday in a Chrysler PT Cruiser with tinted windows and license plates from Alberta, Jenkins' home province. He stayed in the car while the woman checked them in, he said.
She was blonde, in her early 20s and "naturally pretty, one of those wholesome little ladies," he said.
Adam Curt, 19, a motel employee and Walker's nephew, said Jenkins "looked stressed out," said. "He wouldn't look anybody in the eye."
Walker said he didn't recognize the man although Jenkins' face had been all over the news.
"In no way shape or form did he look like the man on TV," he said. "He looked spent."
The motel manager said the woman paid cash for three nights and when the couple didn't check out, he unlocked the room and found him dead.
"I cracked the door and there he was, hanging there in front of me, feet touching" the floor, Walker said. "He definitely wanted to die. I smelt death."
Michelle Beck, who lives near the motel, said people who stay there are "kind of seedy — lots of drugs addicts and people down on their luck."
Police carried out bags of Jenkins' belongings, including his laptop computer, Walker said.
Hope is about 100 miles (160 kilometers) from Point Roberts, Washington state, the last place Jenkins was reported to have been seen before he crossed into Canada.
"The sadness of this all is that Mr. Jenkins will not stand before an Orange County jury for his crime," Buena Park Police Lt. Steve Holiday said at a Sunday night press conference.
Holiday said his department's investigation would continue. The British Columbia Coroner's Service is also investigating Jenkins' death and police are trying to determine how he got to Hope.
After Jenkins disappeared last week, his boat was found Wednesday at a marina not far from the U.S.-Canada border south of Vancouver. Canadian authorities launched a massive border search using helicopters, ground police and dogs.
"The ring was tightening on him," Tom Hession, chief inspector for the U.S. Marshals Service's regional fugitive task force, said at the California news conference. "He obviously was desperate."
Jenkins and Fiore met in Las Vegas in March and they married a few weeks later. The couple separated shortly afterward, but had reportedly reconciled.
A cell phone message left with Fiore's mother, Lisa Lepore of Maui, Hawaii, was not immediately returned.
Friends said Fiore was a model who worked mainly in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, doing gigs such as being bodypainted at parties. She also was an aspiring actress and had a bit part in a small 2008 horror science-fiction movie, "The Abandoned," according to the Internet Movie Database.
Jenkins was recently a contestant on VH1 reality show "Megan Wants a Millionaire," in which wealthy young men tried to win over a materialistic blonde. The network canceled the show Friday.
Fiore's mother told The Associated Press earlier this week that her daughter had the marriage annulled in May. However, there were no court records of an annulment in either Nevada, where the couple was married, or in Los Angeles County, where they most recently lived.
The two were married in a Las Vegas casino after taping for "Megan Wants a Millionaire" finished in early March, Lepore said. Court records show the date of marriage as March 18.
But in May they fought because he was jealous of her ex-boyfriends, Lepore said.
Jenkins also was a participant in an as-yet-unaired competitive reality series, "I Love Money 3." A VH1 spokesman said no decision has been made on whether or not to run the show.
A resume posted on the professional networking site LinkedIn.com says Jenkins had a license to fly commercial airplanes and dabbled in several development enterprises.
Jenkins had been charged with allegedly hitting Fiore in the arm recently, court records showed.
In his hometown of Calgary, Jenkins was sentenced to 15 months probation in January 2007 on an unspecified assault charge.
Prosecutors said Jenkins and Fiore checked into a San Diego hotel Aug. 13, and Jenkins checked out the next morning. Fiore was never seen alive again.
Gillies reported from Toronto and Associated Press Writers Andrew Dalton in Los Angeles and Ron DePasquale in New York contributed to this report.
