Nyle DiMarco Hugs The Wrong Kind of Bear But It's OK

Dear Mr. Nyle DiMarco

Greetings! My name is Ryan Shea and I have been a fan of yours ever since you first appeared on the CW reality competition series America's Next Top Model.

Just like ANTM's host Tyra Banks, I also thought you were "fine as hell" and really rooted for you from beginning to end and was elated that you won. I was just as thrilled when you decided to be a contestant on Dancing with the Stars, where you won that too. So awesome.

You've also been a fantastic advocate for the deaf community and have championed a lot of causes for not only you but millions of hearing impaired people around the world which makes you that much more incredible. 

But Nyle, there's a bit of a problem. I was perusing your Twitter account the other day (for fun) and noticed that you were hugging an absolutely adorable stuffed bear for a shoot you are doing with Buzzfeed (big fan of that website of course). You even gave the bear a huge kiss which made the 4 second video that much cuter.

As sweet as that was, I have to say that you are in the right area when it comes to hugging bears, but it would be better if you actually found a real one to hug... and I don't mean the actual animal.

For that, I am offering up my huggable bear services to you given that I am, according to society and that ex twink that I dated who said I ate too much... a bear. Here are three great reasons why hugging bears (real ones once again, not animals), are great:

  • We provide a lot of warmth due to our fur and husky type figures.
  • This is great for the colder months when a basic jacket just won't do.
  • We are primarily adorable and that's why men flock to us.
  • Those reasons are good enough.

So Nyle, if you are ever in need of a real bear to hug, hit me up. Maybe I can even buy you a piece of pizza afterwards and we can discuss how awesome Britney Spears is (I hope you are a fan). I look forward to your reply.



This was created by one of our contributing writers and does not reflect the opinion of Instinct Magazine or the other contributing writers when it comes to this subject. Also... this is meant to be simply humor. I do not expect Nyle to ever get back to me on this... for real. It's meant to be a silly joke, and I hope you all got a good laugh at it! Happy Pride. 

Nyle DiMarco Shares His Long-Haired High School Graduation Pic

Who knew that Nyle DiMarco could've had a side gig as the lead vocalist in a 90's garage band of sorts?

The America's Next Top Model winner recently unearthed his high school graduation photo, and the transformation from an Eddie Vedder lookalike to the suave and sophisticated sex bomb that he is now is truly unbelievable.

"It always gets better folks," one social media user captioned the side by side photo of Nyle back then and now. There's so much about this left photo to discuss that its hard to figure out where to begin. The stringy long hair, the workings of some sort of a mustache, the unibrow, but the photo placed next to it shows what a glow up this dude has had, and it goes beyond the aesthetic.

Something pretty admirable about Nyle is that he has taken his platform of being hearing impaired and used it in a way that has gotten millions of people talking. He's worked on getting disability-emojis approved and has just partnered with Tim Cook at Apple to kickoff their accessible Everyone Can Code program at the California School for the Deaf (CSD) in Fremont, California.

Also his high school yearbook quote was pretty "sweet" as well.

Well done mister. 

Tim Cook and Nyle DiMarco Team Up For Something Wonderful

Two wonderful men in our community have joined forces for an incredible purpose.

Openly gay Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, and Nyle DiMarco, America's Next Top Model & Dancing with the Stars winner, teamed up on Thursday to kickoff Apple's accessible Everyone Can Code program at the California School for the Deaf (CSD) in Fremont, California. It is something that schools like CSD will start teaching to their students. 

“Being here on the California School for the Deaf campus for Global Accessibility Awareness Day is really special for me,” Nyle said in a statement to PEOPLE.

“I was on track to be an educator and am a big advocate for education inclusion. The deaf students here have an amazing opportunity to learn coding which will open so many doors for them in the future. I’m excited for them that they get to experience this and that Apple is making this happen,” he said. “We didn’t have this technology when I was in school and it’s great steps to bridging both worlds, the deaf and hearing.”

The Everyone Can Code program is not limited to just students who are hard of hearing. Apple is teaming up with leading educators in both the blind and deaf communities across the United States to bring accessible coding to each of their schools.

Nyle has been an outspoken advocate for the deaf community since he became famous on ANTM, with his ability to try to champion causes including getting disability-emojis approved and so much more. 

He shared a ton of videos on his Instagram stories throughout the day that showed the level of excitement these children had when Tim and him came to visit. Great job guys!

Subway Rider Gets Caught Creeping on Nyle DiMarco!

As someone who had the pleasure of interviewing the super studly Nyle DiMarco once (he did the red carpet for Hulu's Difficult People a couple of years back), I can understand how any specimen can find themselves in a super awkward situation when they realize just how gorgeous he is in real life.

Case in point, a lovely subway rider in New York City who found herself on the E train with him and started taking creeper shots (way to go!)  without realizing who he was originally.  "Rarely do you see a supermodel ride the subway train," she told Buzzfeed News. "I can tell he’s a fashion model because of what he was wearing."

Her sleuth skills starting kicking in immediately. "I was trying to figure out who he was," she said. She took a ton of amazing creeper shots, then figured out who he was when she scrolled past a Facebook article of his.


Then, she went from creeper status to "here I am" status when she actually shared the photo she took of him on his Facebook page.  "I think I saw you on the E train last Sunday.  If this is you, you are very handsome in person!"

Nyle was nice enough to not only get back to her but upload a photo of her taking a creeper shot of him!  Hehe.  "Yes I knew you were taking pics of me.  Thank you love!"

Nice work!  See the whole story here

5 Times Nyle DiMarco Almost Bared All

Nyle DiMarco has definitely earned himself a position as one of the hottest guys in the entertainment industry since his easy win on season 22 of America's Next Top Model.

His sexiness and appeal go beyond the aesthetic, as he has also become a major advocate for the deaf community (he himself is hearing impaired, as is his DJ brother Nico) over the past couple of years.  He has even earned himself production credits as he is one of the producers of the Children of a Lesser God revival on Broadway (Marlee Matlin, who is also hearing impaired, won the Best Actress Oscar for the movie adaptation back in 1986).

So his social media pages, in particular his Instagram, are chock full of the best of both worlds in terms of his amazing physical abilities and his desire to help the deaf community, but the focus right now is strictly on the former. 

With his piercing blue eyes, chiseled features, furry body (thank you for not shaving) and a butt that deserves its own award, Nyle has given us some amazing photos and vids to look at over the years.  Which five, however, have been his most revealing?

Take a look at five pics (including one video) of his that left very little to the imagination.

How low can you go...

Nyle DiMarco Gives us A Tour Wearing Next to Nothing

We've seen Nyle DiMarco in various states of undress before, however his latest near-naked post may have finally given us a thirst-induced heart attack that we are still recovering from.

Nyle is in NYC as he is producing the Broadway show Children of a Lesser God, which opens tonight.  New York Magazine let him take the reigns of their Instagram stories today, where he took their followers on his journey throughout The Big Apple.

Children of a Lesser God was originally a Broadway play in 1979 before it became an Oscar-winning adaptation in 1986.  The revival, opening at Studio 54 tonight, Stars Joshua Jackson and Lauren Ridloff as an unconventional teacher at a school for the deaf and the remarkable woman he meets there, respectively. 

One of his stops happened to be him catching up with his cutie twin brother (NOT boyfriend) Nico, who he hasn't seen since Christmas. He is DJ'ing after the premiere of Lesser God later this evening.

He then brought us back into his hotel room, where he showed what he looked like after he took a shower (yum). Then he laid down on his bed in the same towel where he debated going shirtless to the premiere or wearing a suit. We are honestly fine with either.

Best of luck in the revival, Nyle! 

Nyle DiMarco Encourages His Followers to Get Disability-Related Emojis Approved

America's Next Top Model winner Nyle DiMarco is incredibly passionate about his causes, primarily with ones relating to the millions of others just like him who are either deaf or hard of hearing.

It is something he has discussed for several years now, since he shot to fame on the popular CW series, and now he's taking his activism in this field by encouraging his followers and millions of others to get disability-related emojis approved ASAP.

He tweeted a collage of photos, all of which represent emojis for people who are dealing with one or more disability.  He simply asked the following: "RETWEET TO GET THEM APPROVED!!!"



The First row (from left to right) is an ear with a hearing aid, a seeing-eye dog in a harness and a prosthetic arm. The second row (same pattern) features a person in a manual wheelchair, a closeup of a person's face making the ASL sign for "deaf" and a blind person walking with a cane.  The third row is a prosthetic leg, a service dog in a vest with leash and a person in a power wheelchair.

In three short days, the tweet has received 78,000 retweets and 67,000 likes, with several people sharing their thoughts of encouragement that these emojis get approved.  Here's hoping Apple recognizes his efforts in this, and these emojis will show up on the latest iPhone update in due time.



Nyle DiMarco Shades Trump in a Truly Hilarious Way

While certain social media users think that Nyle DiMarco and his brother Nico are actually boyfriends, the former has had other things on his mind as of recent including the persistent issues that people who are deaf or with hearing problems face on a daily basis.

He shared a tweet from a user who complained to AMC Theaters about their alleged lack of help when it comes to their deaf and hard of hearing guests who buy passes to see the movies they screen.  "Theaters shouldn’t be for able-bodied people only," he captioned the tweet.



Then, he started expertly shading users who either said disparaging things about deaf/hard of hearing people, such as this lovely fella:



A simple response of "retweet if you use subtitles" received over 100,000 RT's and likes due to what that particular commenter had to say.



This brought up his further point regarding open captioning being available at all movie theaters:



But that was all leading up to quite possibly his shadiest comment yet, where someone DM'd him asking "Nyle what about having a ear surgery??? Why don't you medically treat it"

His response:



Well done, Nyle.  Well done on all ends here.


Wrong Thought: Someone Thinks Nyle DiMarco's Brother is His Boyfriend

One is straight, one is sexually fluid, but both... are brothers.  And that is exactly what America's Next Top Model and Dancing with the Stars winner Nyle DiMarco had to explain to a social media user who thought they were a "cute couple." 

Nyle posted a photo with his equally as handsome brother Nico (a well-known and respected DJ), back on St. Patrick's Day as they were celebrating the biggest Irish holiday in the world.



"KISS ME MY TWIN BROTHER IS IRISH!" was the caption (not a problem, Nyle).  One user evidently didn't know their history, and tweeted some kind words about them looking like a cute couple.



Nyle quickly shut that down by emphatically saying:



So, for future reference folks, these two are brothers.  Equally as handsome, but related. 

Nyle DiMarco Trolls A Follower On Social Media Who Thinks He 'Looks Deaf'

Social media has easily become a great place to find the biggest idiots in the world, and Nyle DiMarco was lucky enough to spot one earlier today.

Nyle, who is deaf and has become a major advocate for the 70 plus million people like him, had no problem trolling the f**k out of someone who made a very stupid comment on one of his pictures. 

Luckily, he blurred out their user name (many wouldn't), but the comment read as follows: "Doesn't even look deaf" followed by a series of really, really idiotic emojis.

Nyle's response? "so happy i don’t look deaf!!!!" 



The comment, posted on Thursday afternoon, has received a ton of likes, retweets and comments to further this social media user's dumbassery.  One particular person who chimed in is YouTube personality Tyler Oakley, who had this to say:



Another one of Nyle's followers reminded us just how hot "deaf" really looks.  We couldn't agree more.
