America’s Next Top Model winner Nyle DiMarco joins Dancing with the Stars

By Ben Kelly

America’s Next Top Model

 champion Nyle DiMarco is set to appear on the next season of Dancing With the Stars.

Although the official line up for the 22nd season of the show won’t be announced until March 8 on Good Morning America, E! News reports that the 26-year-old model and actor will be putting on his dancing shoes to become only the second deaf contestant to appear on the popular dance show.

Although we’ve been paying close attention to the model since he first appeared before Tyra Banks’ judging eyes, we perked up further last October when he described his sexuality as ‘fluid’ on Twitter.

Nyle is a creative collaborator on The ASL App, which was designed by native deaf signers to teach conversational American Sign Language (ASL). He recently set our hearts thumping with this cute Valentine’s Day vine to promote the app (and the answer is yes. Yes we will).

What do you mean it’s too late?…

Is it a YES? ———————— Link in bio to learn more ASL! @theaslapp
