Melissa Rycroft: Cheered on By Parents and Boyfriend Ty; Dominating Dancing with the Stars!

by at . Comments

The Bachelor star Melissa Rycroft wowed judges again on Monday's episode of Dancing With the Stars, as she and partner Tony Dovolani earned the night's second highest score of 26 (out of 30) for their sexy rendition of the salsa.

Cheering her on in the audience? Her boyfriend Ty - and her parents!

"A big support system today. They all sat together!" Rycroft said. "It felt really, really good. I could see that they were proud by the smiles on their faces."

Added Melissa Rycroft (who studied ballet): "They've never seen me dance like this! My dad was like, 'What are you wearing?!' I was like, 'Don't look at me!'"

Check out the video of Melissa's performance below, and watch for the shot of her applauding boyfriend and parents after she knocks it out of the park:
