Melissa Rycroft and The Bachelor star Jason Mesnick got engaged in the finale of the show’s 13th season. Rycroft was in for a shock, however, when Mesnick later dumped her on television in favor of runner-up Molly Malaney. Rycroft went on to appear on Dancing with the Stars and work as a correspondent for Good Morning America.

Rycroft may have been burned by love on The Bachelor, but she soon found a new beau in insurance agent Tye Strickland, whom she met at a friend’s birthday party. The two had previously dated before Rycroft appeared on The Bachelor and finally became engaged in June. “Tye and I picked right back up,” Rycroft said in announcing the couple’s engagement. “He’s my best friend.”

Jason Mesnick, meanwhile, announced his engagement to Molly Malaney last October. Mesnick told People magazine he is happy for Rycroft and said “she ended up with the person she was meant to be with.”
