Nyle DiMarco reportedly going from 'Top Model' winner to 'Dancing with the Stars'

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 03/03/2016 

Nyle DiMarco has reportedly joined the cast of Dancing with the Stars.

DiMarco, an actor and model who won the latest season of America's Next Top Model, will be showing off his moves when the ABC reality dancing competition's upcoming 22nd season premieres Monday, March 21 at 8PM ET/PT, E! News reported.

DiMarco, 26, was the first deaf winner of Top Model but would be the second deaf contestant to compete on Dancing with the Stars. Before him, Oscar-winning actress Marlee Matlin participated in the show's sixth season back in 2008. She finished in seventh place with her pro partner Fabian Sanchez.

At the end of Top Model's third Guys & Girls edition -- which aired in December on The CW -- DiMarco, a 6'0 1/2" model from Washington, DC, defeated runner-up Mame Adjei after they competed in a final runway show and had their entire bodies of work throughout the season critiqued by judges Tyra Banks, Kelly Cutrone, Miss J. Alexander and -- for the final panel only -- the contestants' creative consultant Yu Tsai.

DiMarco hoped his victory would help change the world's perspective on the deaf community. He had doubts anything would ever compare to winning America's Next Top Model, but what about a mirrorball trophy?

Fuller House star Jodie Sweetin was the first confirmed Season 22 Dancing with the Stars contestant. She made the announcement on Good Morning America earlier this week, revealing her pro partner is Keo Motsepe.

Celebrity names will continue to leak out per usual leading up to GMA's official cast announcement on Tuesday, March 8.
