Dancing with the Stars in USA with Deaf model, Nyle di Marco


Wow, see what’s happening across the pond…??

Every time Nyle DiMarco enters the ballroom on Dancing with the Stars, the model and actor is met with a thunderous applause – but he hears none of it because he is deaf.

Not that DiMarco minds.

“I’ve never wanted to hear,” the America’s Next Top Model winner says in the current issue of PEOPLE. “That’s never existed in my life. I’m happy!”

His twin brother, his older brother, his parents, grandparents and great-grandparents? All deaf.

Through his foundation, DiMarco is advocating that parents teach their deaf children American Sign Language even if they plan on getting their child a cochlear implant or hearing aid.
