‘The Bachelor’: Melissa Rycroft Falls Ill After Vacation In Dominican Republic

The Bachelor: Melissa Rycroft

The Bachelor fans can recall Melissa Rycroft from Season 13. Of course, she also is known for Dancing with the Stars and  Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team. Recently, she visited the Dominican Republic. However, she fell ill whilst there, recovered, and relapsed again after returning from her vacation.

The Bachelor alum, Melissa thinks it’s something foodborne

Page Six reported on the illness that struck The Bachelor alum in the Dominican Republic.  According to their source, she’s “been battling a mysterious bug after vacationing with her family on the island.” Of course, friends and family have huge concerns with all the reports of illness and even death in the Dominican Republic.

CNN reported tonight that a “New Jersey man died at a hotel in the Dominican Republic last week, his family says, making him at least the ninth US tourist to die at a Dominican Republic resort, or after becoming ill at one, over the past 13 months.” However, Rycroft’s rep says she thinks it’s some sort of “foodborne” illness.

Vacation in the Dominican Republic saw Melissa Rycroft get sick

Page Six reported that Melissa’s “really sick,” according to their source. Obviously, her family, friends, and now, The Bachelor fans, worry about her. However, they also note that Melissa doesn’t seem too concerned. Their report says that Melissa fell ill while on vacation at the Nickelodeon Resort in Punta Cana. However, she later recovered – until her return to the USA.

None of the rest of her family seems ill, which might be why she’s just dealing with it, and not stressing too much. It looks like she contracted some sort of tummy bug whilst on vacation because her rep says she started getting “severe cramping” on her return. The rep added, “It has lasted for over a week, and she’s currently getting tested for possible parasites and any other infections.”

  1. I find it very suspicious that so many American tourists are either getting very ill or worse “dying” visiting the Dominican Republic. We need to send an American representative from the CDC to that country to try and figure out what is causing this.
    In the meantime, Americans should be advised by the CDC not to be travel there.
