Ryan Jenkins was nicknamed Smooth Operator by his co-stars on the TV show Megan Wants A Millionaire — a moniker that was befitting of the accused murderer, according to a former co-worker.

A woman who worked at a downtown Calgary restaurant with Jenkins — who was found dead in a Hope motel yesterday — said he seemed “well bred” but had a “suave” and “cool” exterior.

“He was very confident in himself and knew he was a ladies’ man, and boy, could he charm the ladies,” said the woman, who did not want her name used because she didn’t want it known that she was speaking ill of him.

“He was actually interesting to talk to but he had an act to keep up,” she said. “I’ve seen him get frustrated at work, and his temper was very quick and hot.”

Jenkins was charged with murder in the death and dismemberment of his ex-wife, Jasmine Fiore.

“Nobody thinks that anyone is capable of this type of heinous act,” she said. “To see a familiar face plastered across the media was a shock to the system.”

“The poor families of (Fiore and Jenkins),” she added. “They’re the biggest victims.”
