Last night, the first half of the two-part Dancing with the Stars finale saw deaf frontrunner Nyle DiMarco score a perfect 30 for his interpretive dance to the song, "Sound of Silence." And although DiMarco seemed to be on his A-game with partner Peta Murgatroyd, 29, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that he is secretly dealing with a major personal crisis after his interpreter, Ramon Narrod, had a horrifying accident this weekend.
Twitter exploded last night with fans inquiring into the whereabouts of DiMarco's interpreter, after RadarOnline.com broke the news that Narrod had been hospitalized in L.A.
According to an on-set source close to the situation, "Ramon is going to be okay. He is in stable condition right now and although he will not be there tonight, he will be there in spirit."
So how is DiMarco coping?
"Nyle was in his head before he went on, but after a phone call to Ramon in the hospital via another interpreter, it completely changed his stance and inspired him to dance the hardest that he ever has," said the source.

As RadarOnline.com reported, this season has not been easy on DiMarco. According to insiders, he has experienced intense backlash from the other contestants and people on set.
"Just because Nyle was without Ramon last night, that did not stop others from continuing to throw shade at him," the source claimed. "A lot of people on set are still continuing to treat him disrespectfully."
"But the difference between now and when he started is that Nyle does not let that bullsh*t and jealousy get to him anymore," the source said.
"Nyle will win this and he is going to dedicate this win to Ramon and to all of the other deaf and disabled people out there that are told they will never be good enough," the insider said, adding, "Nyle knows that he has some big shoes to fill, but he also knows that you can do anything that you put your mind to."
