Source: Melissa Rycroft to Go Dancing with the Stars
Melissa Rycroft failed to find a husband on reality TV.
But the former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader is hoping to replace heartbreak with triumph: People Magazine reports that the jilted Bachelor suitor will take over for injured Nancy O'Dell on the new season of Dancing with the Stars.
Rycroft, of course, was dumped by Jason Mesnick on last week's world-shattering, post-finale After the Final Rose special. She has received nationwide sympathy as a result.
According to an insider close to Dancing with the Stars, Rycroft has had only days to rehearse. She's expected to perform live on tomorrow night's premiere and to be teamed with professional Tony Dovolani.
No word on whether or not Molly Malaney will be backstage in case Dovolani wishes to change partners.
