Joe Exotic’s Tiger King nemesis Carole Baskin very nearly went crashing out of Dancing with the Stars in week two.
Partnered up with professional choreographer Pasha Pashkov, Carole sank to the bottom two places on the score cards, alongside basketballer Charles Oakley and Emma Slater.
Judge Bruno Tonioli (a favourite amongst Strictly Come Dancing fans) eventually voted to save the latter pair, while Carrie Ann Inaba and Derek Hough opted to keep Carole and Pasha in the competition.
Maintaining the Tiger King hype, Carole has spent her time on the US dancing show performing to animalistic tracks ‘Eye of the Tiger’ and ‘What’s New Pussycat?’ – this week consisted of the Viennese Waltz.
Elsewhere, it was confirmed earlier this month that the big cat lover would be appearing in a new documentary series looking at animal cruelty alongside her husband Howard Baskin.
« This is a chance for us to use our new platform to battle the everyday evils facing big cats and so many other animals. Working with Thinkfactory [Media] on this show will help us further our life’s mission, while bringing important stories and information to ‘cool cats and kittens’ across the country, » the duo said in a joint statement.
