Former 'Bachelor' Contestant Melissa Rycroft Gets Engaged

Barely four months after she was dumped on national television by Jason Mesnick, former 'Bachelor' contestant Melissa Rycroft is engaged.

Her Dallas insurance agent boyfriend, Tye Strickland, popped the question on Friday in Southlake, Texas to Rycroft after they dated on and off for more than two years.

The two quietly got back together shortly after she was proposed to and then unceremoniously dumped six weeks later by Mesnick in March.

"We've been really good friends, but the timing was never right," she said in interviews at the time. "With all this going on, he's my support system. It's funny how things happen."

Strickland was also a frequent audience member during Rycroft's time on the last season of 'Dancing with the Stars'.

The engagement comes a week after Rycroft announced her new job on ABC's 'Good Morning America'. She is expected to appear as a 'special contributor' on the morning show eight to ten times this summer.
