'The Bachelor' Contestant Gets Engaged, Tierra LiCausi [VIDEO]

The Bachelor contestant Tierra LiCausi found love but not on the hit reality TV show.
The 24-year-old's brother reportedly told Us Weekly that someone else put a ring on LiCausi.
"Tierra got engaged in January. We're ecstatic for her. She is so happy!" LiCausi's older brother said. "They had been together for three years on-and-off. They had broken up in the summer [before the show]."
LiCausi's brother would not disclose the identity of LiCausi's new beau but said he "and his family have a very lucrative business in Las Vegas."
Fans were surprised to learn on Monday that LiCausi, the contestant whom many followers of the show considered to be the troublemaker of the season, was sent home before the rose ceremony. During her time on The Bachelor, LiCausi was viewed as "overly emotional," according to ABC News. This soon became the reason for the tension between her and her fellow competitors.
In her final episode on Feb. 11, bachelor Sean Lowe and his six hopeful fiancées traveled to St. Croix in the U.S Virgin Islands in order to become better acquainted with one another. While on a private date with Lowe, LiCausi told him she believed he'd become aloof and removed.
AshLee Frazier, one of LiCausi's contenders for Lowe's love, also went on a date with him. Lowe asked Frazier about the overall mood in the house and she told him that LiCausi didn't get along with the other women. Frazier also disclosed the secret that LiCausi was briefly married while in high school, and even though Frazier was nervous to reveal LiCausi's secret, Lowe appeared to take it all in stride.
After their dates with Lowe, LiCausi approached Frazier about her talk with Lowe. Things got heated and the two women exchanged harsh words. Frazier called LiCausi "rude and unfriendly," according to the news report.
Later that night, an emotional LiCausi told Lowe about the argument she had with Frazier, and said the competition was taxing on her emotions. Out of concern for her wellbeing, Lowe decided to send LiCausi home.
