Melissa became famous for her love match with Jason Mesnick not working out on The BachelorSeason 13, but she found the perfect dance match in Tony. Melissa was a last minute replacement on DWTS Season 8 when his original partner, Nancy O’Dell, was injured. Melissa, a former cheerleader, turned out to be a godsend for Tony, who tends to get older partners with no dance experience. Melissa and Tony made it to the finals, taking third place behind Shawn Johnson and Gilles Marini, who are also returning for All-Stars. Tony and Melissa both said they would be happy to get each other again for All-Stars.
Turns out, they are both in luck. Twelve of the 13 DWTS All-Stars partnerships were revealed today and there are five celeb/pro pairs who were re-partnered from past seasons, including Melissa and Tony.
Are you happy that Melissa and Tony are together again or do you wish she had been given a different pro, just to see how they click? Tony’s great, but Melissa also could’ve been cute with Tristan MacManus or Derek Hough — dontcha think?
