Dockers x CFDA NYFWM Opening Party - New York Fashion Week Men's Fall/Winter 2016 - Opening EventThe official cast list for the upcoming 22nd season of "Dancing With the Stars" isn't due to be revealed until next week, but according to a new report, a reigning reality show champ is set to show off his moves.

E! News has the scoop that Nyle DiMarco, who was crowned the winner of "America's Next Top Model"'s 22nd cycle back in December, is now headed to "DWTS" for season 22. (Maybe he's just a big fan of the number 22?) DiMarco made history as "ANTM"'s first deaf winner (and its last winner ever, until the show was rescued from cancellation by VH1), and will be only the second deaf contestant to compete on "Dancing," after Oscar winner Marlee Matlin shimmied her way to seventh place on the program back in 2008.

ABC is keeping the official "DWTS" cast list under wraps for now, so we won't know definitively whether or not DiMarco will be returning to reality programming until the network makes its announcement on "Good Morning America" on March 8. ("Fuller House" cast member Jodie Sweetin is also rumored to be joining the season 22 cast.) But we're keeping our fingers crossed that we'll get to see DiMarco's piercing blue eyes and washboard abs on our television screens again soon.

Season 22 of "Dancing With the Stars" debuts on ABC on March 21.
