Congratulations, Nyle DiMarco! The model took home the Mirrorball trophy with an epic Season 22 victory on ‘Dancing With The Stars,’ and fans are totally freaking out. See their celebratory tweets for Nyle right here!
Nyle DiMarco is your Dancing With The Stars Season 22 champion! The 27-year-old model was an inspiration all throughout Season 22, gaining a huge fan following by the May 24 finale. So when he and partner Peta Murgatroyd were crowned the winners, of course the reaction was overwhelmingly positive. Twitter completely exploded with excited congratulatory messages for Nyle!
After giving one of the most flawless performances in DWTS history with Peta, it was hard to deny that Nyle deserved the Mirrorball. In case you aren’t familiar with Nyle’s story, he’s deaf, which means that he can’t hear the music he’s dancing to at all. He turned out to be a pretty incredible dancer anyway, but the fact that he could learn all of those dances without hearing any music or direction was absolutely amazing — and fans certainly recognized that on social media! In fact, after he was named the winner, one fan tweeted, “Nyle, thank you, We the deaf community feel like we’ve won the mirror ball with you!” Aww!
Nyle made such an impact during his time on DWTS, even celebs chimed in to the Twitter cheering. Stars like Tyra Banks and his preceding champion Bindi Irwin couldn’t help exclaiming over his big win! See some of the tweets below:

Although Nyle wowed everyone with his dancing, he might not be continuing his dancing career. But luckily for Nyle fans, he’s not going away anytime soon — he told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that he plans to do more acting and modeling, and he’s even writing his own show! Sounds like we get to keep cheering Nyle on, even if it’s not on the dance floor!
