Bridget Marquardt is supporting her reality TV brethren on this season of Dancing with the Stars.

While the former Girl Next Door has to cheer on BFF Holly Madison, Bridget also told Us Weekly she has a soft spot for scored Bachelor suitor Melissa Rycroft.

“I heard Holly got seventh place out of 13th, so that’s good because she had very little time to practice,” Marquardt said of her pal’s season premiere performance. “I heard the [Bachelor’s Melissa] did really well too.”

She did. Rycroft sits in second place, based on the judges’ scores, after opening night.

Marquardt added that she “would love to see Holly take it all the way, but it would be great for [Rycroft, too]… what a fairy tale ending!”

Indeed. Somewhere, Molly Malaney is wondering if she’d be better off with a shot at a crystal ball trophy, as opposed to Jason Mesnick’s heart.
