Melissa Rycroft Married Tye Strickland

Melissa Rycroft is a bachelorette no longer.

The former NFL cheerleader-turned-Bachelor star — who was jilted on national television by Jason Mesnick who dumped her for Molly Malaney — has tied the knot with Dallas insurance agent Tye Strickland, according to In Touch Weekly.


“Tye is my best friend in the world, and now he’s my partner forever,” Melissa told the mag. “We have had such a journey within our relationship, that to finally look at him and see my husband, gives me the calmest, most content feeling in the world. I love him so much and am so excited for our forever to begin!”

On the season finale of the 13th season of The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick proposed to Rycroft, which she gleefully accepted. Mesnick’s feelings changed and he decided to break it off with Rycroft — live on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose. He announced he was still in love with runner-up Molly.
