Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentMelissa Rycroft Bio – Smartasses Magazine Melissa Katherine Rycroft-Strickland (born March 11, 1983) is an American dancer, reality television personality, and former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. Rycroft was born on March 11, 1983 in Dallas, Texas. She studied dance from an early age and served as the first lieutenant of her drill team at Newman Smith High School in Carrollton, Texas where she graduated in 2001. Rycroft majored in Marketing at the University of North Texas and was a member of Alpha Chi Omega. She wed Tye Strickland on December 12, 2009, in Mexico. On February 16, 2011, Rycroft gave birth to the couple’s first child, daughter Ava Grace Strickland. On November 4, 2015, she announced that she and her husband are currently expecting their third child.

After graduating college, Rycroft auditioned for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. She danced for the team from 2006-2008. As a cheerleader, Rycroft made regular appearances on Country Music Television’s reality show Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team. As the first season concluded, she was selected as one of the 35 Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders for the 2006 NFL season, and remained with them through 2007-2008.

Rycroft appeared on the 13th season of The Bachelor as one of the 25 bachelorettes vying for the heart of The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick. In the season finale, Mesnick chose her over runner-up, Molly Malaney, and proposed to her. Rycroft said yes. But following the episode, ABC aired part one of the After the Final Rose episode, which was taped six weeks after the season finale, and it was then that Mesnick revealed that he was breaking up with Rycroft, stating that he was still in love with Molly Malaney. Later, Rycroft replaced Nancy O’Dell on the eighth season of Dancing with the Stars. She was partnered with professional dancer Tony Dovolani, and competed on the season premiere. She finished third on the finale. In June 2009, it was reported that Rycroft would be joining the morning television news and talk show Good Morning America as a special contributor throughout the summer. She also was a co-host on ABC’s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve on December 31, 2009. Rycroft also did features for Entertainment Tonight and The Insider. In 2010, she was the co-host for season one of reality show, Bachelor Pad with Chris Harrison. In 2011, Rycroft had a new reality show picked up by CMT under the working title, Melissa and Tye: A New Reality, which followed Rycroft moving to Los Angeles to pursue her Hollywood career while managing a long-distance relationship with her husband. In 2016, she began hosting CMT’s reality TV show Redneck Island.

Rycroft was named to People magazine’s list of World’s Most Beautiful People 2009.

Why we think she’s hot:

No offense to anyone named Molly, but Jason Mesnick may be the absolute stupidest man on the planet. How in god’s name he let Melissa Rycroft get away during the thirteenth season of The Bachelor, after she said Yes, may go down as one of life’s greatest unsolved mysteries. But don’t feel bad for Melissa. Life’s been nothing short of a sweet song for this former Dallas Cowboy’s Cheerleader ever since Mesnick publicly jumped ship on her. For starters, she’s certainly gone on to do much bigger and better things, including, but not limited to- Dancing With The Stars, Entertainment Tonight, and becoming the co-host of ABC’s singles-show, The Bachelor Pad. But entertainment aside, the tribulations of Rycroft’s well publicized reality-series-romance also enabled her to turn her off-again relationship with Tye Strickland to on-again, and the two were married in 2009. We’re personally glad for Miss Melissa, as much of her appeal comes from a bubbly, but not too bubbly disposition, that seems to be both straight from the heart and genuine, and we feel these apparent personality traits compliment her soul-melting smile rather well. For the record, we think her voice is pretty damn pleasant too. When you look at the big picture? Tye Strickland may indeed be the smartest man alive.
