So, I get home late on Mondays because I get off work at 7pm and race to dance class 30 minutes away. I missed the beginning of the show, but I was home in time to see the first male deaf dance contestant, as Marlee Matlin was the first ever deaf contestant.
Anyway, his name is Nyle DiMarco and he totally killed it for someone who cannot hear a single thing!!! I honestly thought he could hear something and even said so out loud until Tom Bergeron asked him and Nyle said he cannot hear anything at all…shocking...considering how well he danced. If Nyle continues to dance like that, he’ll definitely be in the finals!
