Model Nyle DiMarco beat the odds and became the first deaf winner of "Dancing With The Stars" on Tuesday night (May 24).
The 27-year-old, who was also crowned the victor of America's Next Top Model in December (15), was presented with the coveted mirrorball trophy alongside his professional partner Peta Murgatroyd. She claims her second win after landing first place with American footballer Donald Driver in 2012.
When she returned as a judge for seasons 20 and 21 of “Dancing With the Stars,” Julianne Hough seemed like a natural, so it’s a little surprising that she’s decided not to come back for Season 22.
The former DWTS champion told People magazine, “I will miss being on the panel for Season 22, but have a lot of exciting stuff coming that I look forward to sharing. The pro dancers, producers and crew at DWTS will always be my family.”
Last night (May 19) she won the coveted Mirrorball Trophy on “Dancing With the Stars” and Rumer Willis has plenty to be proud about.
The beautiful champion told US Weekly she wants to inspire viewers who lack self-esteem and confidence. "Other than for Val and myself, that is who this mirrorball is for. You know, I hope that it stands for all of that and for anyone who didn't think that they deserved to do something, or couldn't do something, or wasn't capable. That is who I think that [this trophy] is for.”
