If you have been watching Dancing with the Stars you have seen Nyle DiMarco. Or maybe you saw him on America’s Next Top Model he won Cycle 22. He’s now a model for 2(X)IST! If you haven’t seen either, first thing to know outside of his great looks is he’s deaf. His entire family is (parents, siblings and grand parents) but this hasn’t stopped him for perusing a career in modeling or killing it on Dancing with the Stars. Actually he’s one of the best dancers on the show. How he dances without being able to hear or feel the music and stay in step is truly astonishing. It just shows how talented he is in front of the the camera and on the dance floor.
We asked 2(X)IST about having Nyle. “We are very excited to welcome Nyle to the 2(X)IST All-Star team, along with Andre, Veronika and all of the other past campaign models we’ve worked with. For this social media photo shoot, we partnered with photographer Marco Ovando to capture Nyle DiMarco while he was out and about in California. As I’m sure you know, Nyle is currently competing on Dancing with the Stars – and doing quite well, might I add! His disability has not held him back in the least and he truly exemplifies our brand with his passion to find #reasons2XIST.”
