A contestant won't be able to hear music on 'Dancing with the Stars'
 

Perhaps you know Nyle DiMarco.

He's the latest winner of "America's Next Top Model," an actor and deaf advocate.

Now, Nyle is breaking more barriers.

Aside from making sign language education steamier, he'll be the first fully deaf male contestant on "Dancing With The Stars."

"I haven't danced at all growing up. So, we'll see what happens," DiMarco signed.

"How do you choreograph when he can't hear the music?" George Stephanopoulos asked.

"Honestly, it's more visual. It's more of a challenge for me this season, but it's a great one," Peta Murgatroyd answered.

Good thing DiMarco is no stranger to challenges.

"Becoming the spokesperson for the deaf community, and they need me. And it's a burden sometimes, but I'm willing to take that burden and change the world's perspective on deaf people," DiMarco said.
