Reality Show That Cast Ryan Jenkins: Oops

8/21/2009 3:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ryan Jenkins: OopsProducers of the reality show on which accused murderer Ryan Jenkins appeared admits it didn't do a "full" background check. What's not clear ... did it do any background check at all?

51 Minds -- the company that produces "Megan Wants a Millionaire" -- admits it was not aware that Jenkins had been convicted of assaulting a girlfriend when he was cast on the show. This is always a problem when you have someone with violent propensities sharing a house with unsuspecting strangers.

A company rep tells TMZ, "Obviously, if the company had been given a full picture of his background, he would never have been allowed on the show."

51 Minds adds, "The company did have in place what it thought was a thorough vetting process that involved complete background checks by an outside company for all contestants on the shows." In the company's defense, it was just one little mistake.

51 Minds promises to do better in the future.

These reality shows should go to Hell. Because they're doing harm to this country. Can't we get back to good episodic and features and forget about all these freaks who want to be stars....this story just breaks my heart.

what kind of tv show doesn't do background checks? I mean come on. it seems like they don't care much for megans safety. I don't like her anyways she's a golddigger and she liked him too. idiot. it just goes to show that maybe golddigging isn't a safe profession. seriously megan, what can u do with the $ when ur dead?

For Ryan Jenkins, life ended in a suicide in a remote Canadian motel room, and police who had sought the reality show contestant in the killing of his ex-wife hunted Monday for someone new: the mysterious woman who accompanied him to his lodgings.

VH1 will walk, they have the money. The dude may have killed some hit chick, but who knows how bad hse was provoking him. No one deserves to be murdered, but sometimes hot chicks don't know when to stop being a bitch. I will bet a million dollars she was no angel. What I dont understand... why was ryan jenkins on Megan wants a millionaire if he was married already?

So did Ryan film the Megan show before or after he married Jasmine? Not only was he a felon, he was also married? Good qualities for a man on a dating show!

This producers are liars and hypocrites!!!!!!!!! They just thought that this guy was average good looking and that is it.
But, I think, nobody could foresse that Jenkins would become a cruel murderer.
