Melissa Rycroft and Tye Strickland: Together, Happy, Talking

by at . Comments

Earlier this week, Molly Malaney said she could marry Jason Mesnick "tomorrow."

Ironically, however, the couple that ended up together at the conclusion of this year's The Bachelor is not yet engaged.

Conversely, the woman that Jason passed over for Molly, Melissa Rycroft, is set to tie the knot with her insurance agent of a boyfriend, Tye Strickland.

"Tye is my true love," Rycroft said to People, comparing this relationship to her brief engagement to Mesnick. "No disrespect [to Jason] at all, but that situation doesn't compare to where I am now – engaged and happy. It's a different feeling."

Happily Engaged

While the couple admits it has set a wedding date, it also wants to keep the details of the nuptials private.

But that won't stop Strickland from gushing about his fiancee, or admitting that their circumstances are unusual.

"The last six months have not been normal," he said."But we wouldn't change it because what we had to go through has allowed us to be where we are today. It's been a blessing in disguise, and I don't think either of us has ill feelings towards anyone."

It looks like everyone involved in controversial season of The Bachelor have moved on. Have viewers? You tell us!
