Carole Baskin’s first appearance on Dancing With The Stars last night was…chaotic

She danced to Eye of the Tiger, bye


Tiger King star Carole Baskin made her Dancing With The Stars debut last night, as the show’s 29th season got underway. And naturally, she performed to Eye of the Tiger and it was nothing short of iconic.

She danced the Paso Doble with her partner Pasha Pashkov, which began with him locked in a cage. She sported tiger print and her signature flower crown and at one point held her hands up in a claw and roared. Honestly, it’s incredible but it’s also too much to handle.

Watch the full performance from Carole Baskin on Dancing With The Stars week one here:

It looks like the judges weren’t too impressed with her performance however, giving her the lowest score of the night – just 11/30. Bruno scored her a three, and told her the dance was “sedated” – a pun? But the judges did compliment her on going “full out”.

Of course, the internet was absolutely loving it. The memes about Carole Baskin’s debut on Dancing With The Stars are top tier.

In quite a savage turn of events, the family of Don Lewis, Carole’s missing ex-husband, paid for a commercial in the ad breaks of the show. They famously think Carole is involved in his disappearance, and the advert called for people with information and quite literally asked if anyone has evidence of her involvement.

Here’s to next week?
