Melissa Rycroft: From The Bachelor to TV Personality
Melissa was the unfortunate casuality of arguably the most shocking moment in Bachelor history when Season 13's Jason Mesnick chose her as his bride-to-be and then unceremoniously dumped her on national television for runner-up Molly Malaney. But the gorgeous brunette turned devastation into reality TV gold, going on to place second on the eighth season of Dancing With the Stars and taking on various television hosting gigs. She married on-and-off boyfriend Tye Strickland in 2009, and the two welcomed baby girl Ava in 2011. You can keep tabs on the happy couple by watching the CMT reality show Melissa & Tye.
