The March finale of The Bachelor may have ended in controversy, but all involved have now found happiness.

Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney continue to go strong; and scorned contestant Melissa Rycroft has officially moved on: she got engaged to boyfriend Tye Strickland last week!

Strickland proposed to the former Dancing With the Stars finalist in Dallas on Friday night, as the couple celebrated with their parents over dinner at a local restaurant.


Rycroft announced the engagement on ABC's Good Morning America this morning, a show on which she's serving as a correspondent this summer.

"Sometimes the stars align and the clouds part and everything works out the way it should," she said, adding on her Twitter page:

"Guess the secret's out... Thank you all so much for being so great and supportive!! We're soooo excited!"
