In a recent tweet, America's Next Top Model winner Nyle DiMarco revealed that Peta Murgatroyd will be his dancing partner for Dancing with the Stars.

Nyle will be the show's second deaf contestant ever --Oscar winner Marlee Matlin was the first, in the sixth season.

Nyle appeared onGood Morning America and was asked whether he thought DWTS would be a tougher competition than ANTM. "I think it's a difficult question because the panel on Dancing With the Stars, I don't know them yet," DiMarco responded, "and I haven't danced at all growing up, so we'll see what happens."

During an interview with ABC, Nyle's dance partner, Petra Murgatroyd, talked about the challenges of choreographing for someone who can't hear music:

"Honestly, it's all visual," she said. "And it's more a challenge for me this season, and it's a great one. I love working with him. He's such a great student and we're hitting it off, we're doing our moves great and it's going to be an amazing season."

The new season of DWTS is set to premiere on March 21, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
