Melissa Rycroft - 10 Most Beautiful Dallas 2013
If you’re already a fan, you’ll remember following Rycroft Strickland’s love life on the 13th season of The Bachelor. You’ll remember she danced through a season of Dancing with the Stars, hosted Bachelor Pad, then came back to win an all-star round of Dancing with the Stars. (The prized mirror-ball trophy is in her game room.) But before all that, Rycroft Strickland was a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader for two seasons. “Being from Dallas, it’s kind of the pinnacle of what you can do as a dancer,” she says.
Now, she’s happily married and a mother, juggling her career as a celebrity and making appearances on Good Morning America, Entertainment Tonight, and The Insider. Next up: opening her own fitness studio. “I feel like I’m in a bit of a fairy tale. I’m pretty proud of where I’m from and what I’ve accomplished,” she says.
