Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd have brought the audience to tears multiple times during their stint on season 22 of Dancing with the Stars, but they were the ones getting emotional before Monday's episode.
It was a stressful rehearsal process for the couple, who were preparing for the deaf model to dance with a blindfold on the ABC reality dance competition.
"I was just frustrated with myself because the blindfold wouldn't work," Murgatroyd told PEOPLE at Mixology in Los Angeles after Monday's episode. "We changed the way it was built a couple of times and it wasn't working the way it was supposed to. I felt like we wasted time."

" Peta Murgatroyd has never had a challenge quite like being Nyle DiMarco's partner on Dancing with the Stars.
Because the America's Next Top Model winner is deaf, Murgatroyd has had to develop an entire new way of teaching in order to prepare him for his dances.
"Nyle has absolutely made me a better teacher," the pro dancer told PEOPLE after Monday's season 22 premiere. "I have to be very careful to explain myself so well and make sure that the words I am using to describe things are very clear."
