Melissa Rycroft, who was unceremoniously dumped on national TV last week by The Bachelor's Jason Mesnick (pictured), made a triumphant comeback on ABC's Dancing with the Stars Monday night premiere. The Dallas native earned huge applause and one of the night's highest scores–a 23 out of 30–dancing the Viennese waltz with partner Tony Dovolani. It was no small feat: Rycroft had just two days to rehearse while her competitors had a month. Last week, singer Jewel and Access Hollywoods's Nancy O'Dell quit the show due to injuries.
