better, to learn better in classroom, etc).

— Nyle DiMarco faces a big problem

Nyle DiMarco faces a big problem. A scandal? No!
The paparazzi follows him everywhere, and they

— comment during interview is a puzzler

Kristine Leahy, not deaf, conducts interviews
with Ninja TV participants. She interviewed
deaf participant Kyle Schulze, and said:

Being hearing impaired can affect your balance,
and he did so well

may have balance problems. This may mean 70
percent of other deaf people do not have
balance problems. Obviously Kyle must have
great balance to compete in these Ninja events.
