'DWTS': Shirtless Nyle DiMarco Shows Off His Abs in Amazing Tarzan-Themed Performance for Disney Week

Nyle DiMarco ripped off his shirt and showed off his chiseled abs to play Tarzan on Monday's Dancing With the Stars.

It was Disney Week on ABC's dance competition show, meaning each contestant chose a different classic Disney song to perform to. For DiMarco, who is DWTS' first fully deaf contestant, the choice to play the famed jungle man went deeper than simply enjoying the movie.

"Tarzan is one of my favorite films," DiMarco explained through his sign language interpreter during a pre-recorded segment. "Tarzan and Jane, when they first met, they couldn't really understand each other."

"That's exactly what's happening with us," the 26-year-old model explained to his pro partner, Peta Murgatroyd. "So I always wished I could actually be Tarzan."

Murgatroyd also made sure that this would be an opportunity for DiMarco, who won the final season of America's Next Top Model last year, to show off his six-pack.

Even if he hadn't been shirtless, the duo's energetic and skillful samba set to the Tarzan tune "Trashin' the Camp" was stunning and beautifully orchestrated, and received a lot of love from the judges.

"The lord of the jungle is now the lord of the dance," judge Bruno Tonioli gushed. "You are perfectly undressed for the occasion. And one thing is for sure [you] won the Emmy for best supporting loin cloth! Great work!"

"Nyle, I look at your body and we are so much alike," judge Len Goodman joked. "It had great energy, it was a great performance and a great dance."
