VH1 has quietly brought back the competition show "I Love Money" starting tonight, Thursday, Sept. 16, 2010, a year after a contestant on the program was involved in a murder-suicide, reports the New York Daily News.
The third season of the show, which requires contestants to compete in physical and mental challenges to win $250,000, featured a contestant named Ryan Jenkins who allegedly murdered his wife, Jasmine Fiore, the story says. Jenkins fled to Canada, where the police said he killed himself, according to the article.
At the time of the incident, he had already filmed (and reportedly won) "I Love Money 3," the story says. While VH1 had already filmed the fourth season of the show, it yanked the program from the air immediately.
A VH1 spokesman says the third season will never air, while the fourth season was re-edited before airing, the article adds.
