Melissa, 27, was unceremoniously dumped by Jason Mesnick on national television in 2009, after the two became engaged during "The Bachelor" season finale. She quickly moved on to appear on "Dancing with the Stars" and later tied the knot with Tye, 29, the following December.

Rycroft is co-hosting the upcoming reality series "Bachelor Pad," which debuts August 9 on ABC.
