'Dancing with the Stars' is apparently a good way to get over being dumped on 'The Bachelor.' [WHO'S DANCING: See images of those participating in Season 8!]

Reports are that Bachelor reject Melissa Rycroft is joining Season 8 during the premiere tonight. The 25-year-old former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, who was proposed to by Jason Mesnick and then dumped for Molly, is rumored to be the replacement for injured 'Access Hollywood' host Nancy O'Dell.

Former Playboy playmate Holly Madison is reportedly replacing Jewel, who also withdrew because of rehearsal injuries.

Holly and Melissa are expected to be introduced tonight, along with the 11 other celebrities competing.
