Former 'Bachelor' and 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant Melissa Rycroft tried out for the Rockettes on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). Rycroft performed well during the mock audition, but ultimately came up short.

Rycroft, who is a contributor to 'GMA,' runs through a series of difficult dance steps including high kicks, but fails to meet the height requirement for Rockettes by two inches.

'Bachelor' Jason Mesnick Explains Why He Chose Molly (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 8th 2010 2:30PM
Jason Mesnick, who proposed to Melissa Rycroft at the end of 'The Bachelor,' only to famously change his mind during a reunion show for contestant Molly Malaney, said on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) that he decided to do so after show producers told him Malaney was about to become the next 'Bachelorette.'

"I don't know if everybody knows that Molly was selected to be 'The Bachelorette,' and they told me, 'If you ever want to talk to her, tonight's the night you have to do it,'" Mesnick said. "They said, 'She's going to go on to 25 other guys, or you ask her tonight.'"

Melissa Rycroft Joins 'Entertainment Tonight' as Special Correspondent

by Aaron Nye, posted Feb 4th 2010 10:20AM
The incredible trajectory of Melissa Rycroft goes on.

PEOPLE reports that the former 'Bachelor' contestant has been named a special correspondent for 'Entertainment Tonight.' As part of the job, Rycroft will cover a number of assignments for the entertainment program, including premieres, award shows, set visits and Hollywood parties.

Just a year ago, the former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader was one of 25 women vying for Jason Mesnick's heart on season 13 of 'The Bachelor.' Rycroft won it, of course -- but not for long. During the show's reunion special, Mesnick revealed that he had lingering feelings for runner-up Molly Malaney, then dumped Rycroft on national television (Mesnick and Malaney have since announced plans to wed as part of an ABC special, set to air Mar. 8.)

Samantha Harris to leave Dancing with the Stars

Samantha Harris on the set o Dancing with the Stars.My one wish has finally come true: Samantha Harris is officially leaving Dancing with the Stars. People has announced that Samantha will not be returning when the tenth season begins in March.

While the producers and Tom Bergeron have voiced how they are going to miss Samantha, I'm happy to finally see her off screen. She has made several fashion faux-pas, has accidentally said contestants scores before the judges revealed their paddles, and has had poor judgment when cutting off interviews. I can't believe that she's been around for eight seasons.

'Bachelor' Scandal: Contestant Cheats on Jake With Crew Member

by Allyssa Lee, posted Dec 29th 2009 2:00PM
The season premiere is still a couple of days away, but already the 14th season of ABC's 'The Bachelor' has got tongues wagging.

It appears that someone else on the reality TV series -- besides the Bachelor Jake Pavelka himself, that is -- has been getting some loving. A recent ABC promo is teasing scandal, with one woman on the clip dishing that "she's been having this sexual affair with somebody else in the Bachelor house." And while the promo pans to footage of a couple of same-sex contestants frolicking around together, a New York Post report suggests that a 'Bachelor' contestant is actually having an affair with a male member of the reality show's production crew.

The show saw bachelor Jason tell both finalists -- Molly Malaney and Melissa Rycroft -- that he was in love with the other. Each women was rejected for the other in a span of six short weeks.

'Bachelor' and 'Bachelorette' Couples: Who's Still Together?

Reality Show Couples: Who's Still Going Strong? jason meznick, molly malaney, the bachelor, the bacheloretteHave reality dating shows forgotten their mission?

Couples have been entering and exiting the revolving doors of 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette' asking, "what's love got to do with it?" Not much apparently, because 15 out of 18 couples have broken up after the show wrapped.

According to US Magazine, the latest couple to call it quits is season 6 bachelor Byron Velvick and his fiancée, Mary Delgado. The pair had a dreamy on-camera courtship but off-camera their five-year relationship was tumultuous: Delgado was arrested in 2007 for assaulting Velvick after a 'Bachelor' reunion show. So if these casualties of television induced romances are any indication, on-camera dating is no way to find true love.

Review: Dancing with the Stars - Performance 9 Results

The final four of Dancing with the Stars
(S09E19) It's been nine weeks on Dancing with the Stars and I didn't expect to see Joanna, Kelly, or Donny around this long. Unfortunately, one of them was eliminated.

For no reason, Melissa Rycroft showed up on this results show and slipped in the professional's performance. This was probably because her fans caused an uproar since she wasn't a candidate for the Design A Dance competition. Instead of "Sabrina was robbed" we got "Melissa was robbed," and ABC listened.

It was a busy show, but the elimination was not a shocker to me. By this point, fan support outweighs the judges scores.

Dancing with the Stars: The Finale

dancing with the stars finale(S08E21) The night started with a grand swoop of the set, something I wished that would be used more often. Unfortunately, the episode really dragged on until the last hour. I guess I'm now prepared for the long results show for American Idol tomorrow.

I get to make my final jab at Samantha Harris for the season: someone has to fire her stylist. That dress was ugly.

The outcome was a little bit of a shock, but I would appreciate a win from any of the three contestants. We start (and end) the night with Lady GaGa, and she didn't do half bad.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 11

by Michael Pascua, posted May 19th 2009 12:38AM
Dancing with the StarsWe're finally at the end of the season with the three strongest dancers. After ten weeks, I have no clue how Belinda Carlisle did back in week one. At this point, you could tell me that Nancy O'Dell was eliminated in week two and I would believe you. The mirror ball trophy was placed in front of the judges table and the judges seem excited about the competition. Unfortunately, we got some more disappointing freestyle performances.

The interesting thing about the three competitors is that their strengths are in different categories. Shawn is probably the quickest learner and can technically perform. Gilles is best with Latin, and Melissa is best with Ballroom. Melissa probably has the biggest hill to climb, coming from third place and stuck with a Latin performance.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 10 Results

Ty Murray(S08E19) I normally have the opportunity to watch Dancing with the Stars in high definition, but this week's results show I watched from the 4:3 resolution. I have to admit, this show needs the extra sides of frame for HD. There is a degree of beauty missing from the show.

One thing I forgot to mention about Melissa's performance last night was that she got an unlucky draw. I find it unfair to have the Cha-Cha near the end of the season since it lacks the flair of the Salsa and Samba, or the passion of the Paso Doble. I gave her some credit for doing as well as she could, but she lacked the passion.

It turns out that Afton was cursed. Everyone that Afton touched, including herself, got eliminated. More about the professional competition and the elimination after the jump.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 10

Melissa Rycroft on Dancing with the Stars(S08E18) Tonight's episode didn't have to be two hours. I already suffered from watching a three-hour finale of The Celebrity Apprentice, and when I saw the show start with a professional group dance, I knew this episode was going to be padded. That three-minute buffer of dancing could be worse; Samantha Harris could have tried to interview the celebrities for three minutes.

I caught Samantha Harris this afternoon on the syndicated version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire?, covering for Meredith Vieira, and she was a little better on that show. I have to think that she just can't roll with the punches as well as Tom Bergeron. Her flaws really kicked in tonight as she fumbled through the whole show. Can't we have a contest to find a new co-host?
