Murray may have retired in the arena but he hasn't slowed down as a cowboy.

'Bachelor' Star Melissa Rycroft Joining 'Dancing'By Access Hollywood
March 8, 2009 11:02 AM PDT

'Bachelor' contestant Melissa Rycroft
ABCAccess Hollywood LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- "The Bachelor" star Melissa Rycroft will join "Dancing With the Stars" for the ABC show's Monday premiere, Access Hollywood has confirmed, although ABC would not confirm the news yet.
The casting was first reported by People on Sunday.

The former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, who was dumped on the "After the Final Rose" special by Jason Mesnick after he proposed to her in the "Bachelor" season finale, will replace Access's Nancy O'Dell , who had to leave the competition due to a torn meniscus in her knee. She'll be dancing with pro Tony Dovolani.

In addition to her cheerleading skills, Melissa has a background in ballet -- which could help the late addition make up for lost rehearsal time.

Former "The Girls Next Door" star Holly Madison is rumored to be filling the show's other spot, left by singer Jewel , who also exited the competition early due to injuries.

ABC had no comment on the news when reached by Access on Sunday, noting that additional casting announcements would be made on Monday's show.

The eighth season of "Dancing" premieres on Monday at 8 PM.
