betrayed on what was the most shocking and talked about season finale ever of ABC's "The Bachelor." Jason Mesnick chose her in the season 13 finale of "The Bachelor" on March 2, 2009, only to end their relationship on the "After the Final Rose" special in favor of runner-up Molly Malaney, just six weeks after taping had ended.

In 2009, Rycroft joined ABC News as a special contributor for "Good Morning America," where she's appeared on the morning news broadcast delivering fun and uplifting stories from across the country and from Hollywood's most glamorous red carpets.

In 2010, Rycroft co-hosted the first season of ABC's reality series "Bachelor Pad."

Rycroft was a member of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and appeared on two seasons of CMT's "Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team." She graced the cover of the April 13, 2009 issue of People Magazine and was featured among their 100 Most Beautiful People of 2009. Rycroft has also been named to Maxim's Hot 100 list.

Rycroft graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Marketing. Before appearing on "The Bachelor," Rycroft worked as a sales representative. She resides in Dallas, Texas.
