Melissarycroft_290 Jason who? “The Bachelor’s” most famous jilted contestant Melissa Rycroft may get her shot at marital bliss after all.

Rycroft said “yes” to her boyfriend, now fiancee, Tye Strickland last Friday, June 26, when he proposed in Southlake, Texas, reports People.

The former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant knew Strickland before she met and had her heart broken by “Bachelor” Jason Mesnick. She and Strickland, a Dallas insurance agent, dated on and off for more than two years.

Rycroft, 26, was devastated when Mesnick broke off their engagement in front of millions of viewers on the “After the Final Rose” special in March so he could date the other lady he had jilted instead.

That’s when Strickland, 28, came back into the picture. He appeared several times in the “Dancing” audience to support her, and she eventually finished as the second runner-up.
