Too Hot for TV: Reality TV Shows Canceled by Scandal
Megan Wants a Millionaire
“Megan Wants a Millionaire” (VH1)
“Rock of Love” reject Megan Hauserman got a chance to be a trophy wife when VH1 launched this reality competition in 2009, with 17 millionaires competing for her affection. But it was cut short when one of the contestants, Ryan Jenkins, became a suspect in the grisly murder of model Jasmine Fiore. VH1 hastily pulled the show off the air after just three episodes as authorities searched for Jenkins, who took his own life soon after. An unspeakable tragedy that makes reality TV seem even sillier than usual, the incident hastened the end of VH1’s wild reality-romance franchise.
