It didn't take long for former Bachelor contestant Melissa Rycroft to bounce back after being dumped on national TV by Jason Mesnick in March. And while she may have lost out on Dancing With the Stars' disco ball trophy, the 26-year-old has finally found lasting love with Tye Strickland, whom she dated on and off before becoming serious shortly after her televised breakup.
