Rycroft will add "Good Morning America" to her network credits, which already include "The Bachelor" and "Dancing With the Stars."

According to a person with knowledge of the deal, Rycroft will make eight appearances as a "Good Morning America" contributor. She will do fun, lighthearted pieces beginning next week, and she'll also travel for the show, the person said Thursday. The person, who was not authorized to discuss the hiring, asked not to be identified.

Rycroft's experience on "The Bachelor" ended badly when she was jilted by Jason Mesnick, but she ended up a finalist on "Dancing With the Stars."

Rycroft, a 26-year-old sales rep from Dallas, dropped a coy posting Wednesday on Twitter, asking, "Guess who just got a job with Good Morning America???"
