Rycroft, 25, is to fill the slot vacated by Access Hollywood host Nancy O’Dell, who had to withdraw from the competition on March 5 due to a knee injury. According to a source close to the production, the Dallas beauty, who has had only days to rehearse, is expected to perform live on Dancing’s Monday premiere.


Melissa is the third former Pro Cheerleader/Dancer to appear on Dancing with the Stars. Former Miami Heat Dancer Trista Rehn-Sutter was the first contestant eliminated in the show's premiere season, while former Baltimore Ravens Cheerleader Stacy Keibler finished in third in the show's second season.
