Report: Melissa Rycroft to Go Dancing with the Stars

by at . Comments

After having your heart broken in front of millions of viewers, being critiqued on your Paso Doble really isn't a big deal.

With that in mind, jilted Bachelor star Melissa Rycroft will reportedly join Dancing with the Stars.

Sources have told People that Rycroft - the original recipient of Jason Mesnick's final rose and the first-ever contestant on The Bachelor to be dumped on national television - will replace injured Access Hollywood host Nancy O’Dell on the show.

Jason and Melissa: The Bachelor

Melissa Rycroft was humiliated by Jason Mesnick. But will a Dancing with the Stars trophy enable her to get the last laugh?

Holly Madison has already been chosen as a replacement for Jewel.

Rycroft is expected to hit the dance floor on tomorrow night's eighth season premiere. Look for her to be paired with professional Tony Dovolani.

For Melissa's sake, let's hope he doesn't exchange her for a different partner soon after the first episode airs.


Her new boyfriend I heard is not a favorite of her friends. My inside scoop told me her BF in Austin does not like him. I hope Melissa does great and chooses a better guy. Melissa you are the best!!!!


What a great choice for a replacement...Melissa will only help boost the ratings even MORE!! No offense to Nancy O. And, I have a feeling that Melissa will get more votes than Denise Richards. At least I hope so...HAH!!! Common Melissa, although you have not had ANY rehearsal like the other contestants, YOU CAN DO IT!!!


Excited to watch now, looking forward to this season DWTS!!!


Wow! I'm so glad to hear that Melissa will be joining the cast!!! Whoo hoo!! I will for sure watch!! And Holly Madison is great too! Two great reasons that I'll be sure not to miss this season!!


Oh god not that bimbo Holly Madison. You just made me stop watching DWTS.


WOW! How cool! I will definitely tune in to see MEL, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HER!!!!!!
