Nyle DiMarco conquered the runway on America's Next Top Model and the dance floor on Dancing With the Stars. The model, along with professional dance partner Peta Murgatroyd took home the trophy, besting morning show host Ginger Zee and fighter Paige VanZant. DiMarco, who is deaf, said the win is much bigger than him.

"I think it's really about redemption. Redemption's about looking at disadvantages as your advantage, and working hard," he told E! News' Erin Lim after winning the ABC competition. "It's not really about me, it's about the 70 million deaf people in this world and it's just what's been on mind. I really feel like this is for the deaf community and I'm happy I was able to contribute more."

As for his partner, she said the win means "everything."

"From day one, that was my goal. My goal was to get him here, conquer Dancing With the Stars and he's done that. He killed it," Murgatroyd told us.
