After Melissa Rycroft was publicly jilted on the 13th season of The Bachelor, surely the road to true love with husband Tye Strickland would be much easier, right?


In an exclusive clip from Tuesday’s My Crazy Love, re-enactors help Rycroft, 31, play out some of the most embarrassing details of her stop-and-start courtship with Strickland, whom she met in 2005 and married in 2009.

Lowlight: Rycroft once dressed up in her Dallas Cowboys cheerleader outfit to get her man’s attention – and it didn’t work!

The couple now have two children – Ava Grace, 3, and Beckett Thomas, 9 months – so it stands to reason Rycroft and Strickland have figured a few things out during their five-year marriage, but it’s still amusing to remember those uncertain early days of dating.

My Crazy Love premieres Tuesday (10 p.m. ET) on Oxygen.
