Nyle DiMarco is taking a cue from Magic Mike for his next gig: stripping down as a celebrity guest host with the scantily clad Chippendales crew in Las Vegas!
The America's Next Top Model winner will be the troupe's first ever deaf host, and the show will incorporate elements of American Sign Language into the performance during DiMarco's limited engagement run, starting September 22.
"I will be teaching some ladies in the audience some sign language," the 27-year-old model confirmed.
DiMarco, who already proved he has moves by winning season 22 of Dancing with the Stars, said fans can expect big things from his Chippendales appearance. "It's pretty much like a Broadway show, but in Las Vegas," he said. "And to headline something like this, to host it in Las Vegas, is such an honor."
While DiMarco is looking forward to his hosting duties, he's also looking forward to the "cultural exchange" aspect of working with his fellow performers. "They're going to learn a lot from me, as a deaf person," he said.
That learning experience is already evident, as Chippendales James Davis and Mikey Perez welcomed DiMarco to the team at a recent photoshoot, with a few words of ASL they had learned.
"We've been preparing for you to come in. So we've got our chart up and we've been working on our names," Perez said in a behind-the-scenes video for the photoshoot.
