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.
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.
