After having her heart broken on national television and landing in third place during her first stint on one of TV's most popular reality shows, Melissa Rycroft bounced back in a big way when she was declared the winner of ABC's hit reality competition series "Dancing with the Stars" (2005- ). The former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader became a household name when she competed in season 13 of the reality series "The Bachelor" (ABC, 2002- ), where she seemingly won the heart of the show's bachelor, Jason Mesnick. But her fairytale romance with Mesnick came to a sudden halt when he had a change of heart and broke off their engagement in front of millions of viewers. Rycroft's much publicized breakup, however, was not the end of her television career; she went on to appear on "Entertainment Tonight" (CBS, 1981- ) and "The Bachelor" spin-off series "Bachelor Pad" (ABC, 2010- ). Yet, it was Rycroft's return to the popular series "Dancing with the Stars: All Stars" in 2012 that showcased not only her graceful dance moves, but also proved that she had the potential to have a lasting career in show business.
