If you’ve been active on social media during this cycle of America’s Next Top Model, there’s no doubt that you’ve caught a glimpse of the handsome Nyle DiMarco.
Sure, that body, perfectly-groomed stubble, dark hair, and gorgeous blue eyes pulled you in, then when you learned he competing on the show even though he was deaf, that cemented your latest reality TV crush.
DiMarco told ETonline that while is deafness was thought to be a drawback by the judges, it actually helps him in the competition, saying that he’s used to reading body language and it helps him understand how to pose.
The 26-year-old competitor is also able to stay out of the bulk of the drama going on in the house because he can’t hear it, and has even given his opponents a bit of a reality check, bringing up the fact that he doesn’t complain about his deafness while they bemoan their hair.
The folks at ET even GIFed him signing a few ANTM phrases like, “Smize,” “Fierce,” and most importantly: “Wanna Be on Top?”
