Melissa Rycroft Wanted to Win Dancing with the Stars

by at . Comments

Melissa Rycroft didn't want your pity when Jason Mesnick broke her heart on national television, and she doesn't want it now that she finished third on Dancing with the Stars.

"I wanted that mirrorball trophy, I really did," the beauty told Us Weekly. "But I don't need it because I know I've accomplished more than I ever thought I could."

Paso Doble Routine

After all, how can Rycroft complain? Considering where she's been over the last year, Melissa is just grateful to have been one of the final three competitors, along with champion Shawn Johnson and Sex and the City star Gilles Marini.

"Never in a million years did I imagine I'd be dancing with an Olympian and someone who was in a blockbuster movie. My life in the past 11 months has changed so much."

Will it change more in the future? Will Rycroft pursue other headline-making activities or roles?

"I really don't know. I'm not going to pursue anything right now, but if things come my way I will look into them. Never say never!"

We won't, M Ry. In the meantime, relive this star's journey on DWTS by clicking on the images below...

Melissa I thought u were the best on dancing with the stars. I couldn't believe how incredible you were. My favorite dancer I ever saw on any season. It doesn't hurt that your beautiful and have legs and feet I can stare at for hours. The above picture of you dancing in black pantyhose, you looked so sexy that night. I wondered how sweaty your feet were after dancing. I wish you had me tied up and gagged in your dressing room then after you made me smell your pantyhosed feet and suck your toes.


It's not fair that she didn't win. She was the best and everyone could see that if they followed dwts. This show was probably bought anyway. The audience all texted for her to win and I feel sorry for them waisting their money because they planned on having Johnson win anyway.


Sympathy votes did not get Melissa to the finals. The fact that she is amazing on the dance floor did. Looked forward to each night DWTS was on because of Melissa & Tony.


Melissa made it to the finals. She earned it & she deserved to be on the top. She can dance!Melissa more power to you!


Hi Melissa,
You may not have won the trophy, but you are a winner. After your incredible journey, you won the hearts of many!You & Tony were awesome.Hope to see more of you in the near future!

GOD bless you!


Melissa did a great job on DWTS but ran out of sympathy votes.
