'The Bachelor' is history: Rycroft engaged

June 30, 2009 1:49:29 PM PDT
When "The Bachelor" winner Melissa Rycroft got jilted for the runner-up, she returned the engagement ring -- and walked off the set. That was so five months ago. Now, Rycroft has another sparkler -- and a new fiance, Tye Strickland, to go with it.

Her spokeswoman, Susan Madore, says Strickland is a 28-year-old insurance agent and has been dating Rycroft on and off for 21/2 years.

According to Madore, he proposed privately Friday night and then the couple celebrated with both sets of parents over dinner.

After Rycroft's run on ABC's "The Bachelor," the 26-year-old former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader appeared on "Dancing With the Stars."
