Even Tyra Banks Is in Awe of Nyle DiMarco on Dancing With the Stars
If you’ve been watching Dancing With the Stars this season and found yourself stunned week after week by what Nyle DiMarco‘s bringing to the dance floor, you are far from alone.
Not only are we right there with you, constantly gushing over the hunky America’s Next Top Model winner for his awe-inspiring abilities (and his good looks), but an old friend of his is joining our ranks. His old mentor Tyra Banks stopped by the rehearsal studio on Thursday to check in on Nyle and his Switch Up week partner Sharna Burgess (Peta Murgatroyd is partnered with Doug Flutie this week) and E! News has your exclusive first look at the reunion.

“With Top Model, you were an amazing mover. I remember there was one picture where you turned upside down. You were like a fashion ghost. But I didn’t know that you had this,” she says in the clip, as she stars swinging her hips. “Where’d that come from?”
“I don’t know. I don’t know, actually. It’s one of those things. I don’t know,” a visibly flustered Nyle replies. “Maybe my twin brother—he’s the DJ, he danced Latin. I never danced growing up, but maybe it’s something that I just understood.”
After her reiterates that he never danced once growing up, Tyra continues with her praise. “But I watch and you look like a professional dancer,” she gushes. “There’s a certain thing that you have that I’m just like, ‘What the hell?!'” And she doesn’t just mean those abs. (Though, they don’t hurt.)
To hear from more from Tyra and Sharna on what exactly they think gives Nyle the it factor both on the dance floor and in modeling, be sure to press play on the video above.
Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
