Nyle DiMarco is a deaf model who competed and won the last season of America’s Next Top Model. His goal for competing in the show was to represent deaf community and break the stereotypes associated with the disability.
He has danced every week with renewed determination and has delivered some of the most heart wrenching performances that brought tears to people’s eyes including his Viennese Waltz with Sharna Burgess, foxtrot, tango and contemporary routines with Peta Murgatroyd and finally the cha cha/tango fusion hit the homerun with the judges and the audience.
MMA fighter Paige VanZant with partner Mark Ballas became the runner up for the trophy and ABC meteorologist Ginger Zee and partner Val Chermovsky came in third place. The ladies were both glad to have the experience but everyone was adamant that Nyle deserved to win the competition as he had to work extra hard given his disadvantage.
