America's Next Top Model Cycle 22 Nyle Dustin Lacey

Now that the “America’s Next Top Model” premiere is over, fans have taken to Twitter to place their guesses of who will win Cycle 22, and there’s one favorite who is clearly in the lead.

Nyle DiMarco (pictured left) is a 25-year-old model with a solid fanbase on Instagram who happens to be “ANTM’s” first deaf contestant. He got some more followers from The CW series’ Wednesday (Aug. 5) debut, based on the reaction on Twitter.

But while DiMarco is the clear fan-favorite, he does have some competition. Many took to social media to say they hope to see him and 18-year-old Dustin McNeer (pictured center) make it to the end.

Cycle 22 is a “Guys & Girls” season, but it’s the guys that have come out of the gate with the stronger fan response.

Of all the women competing, it’s 18-year-old Lacey Rogers (pictured right) who many fans are pulling for.
