Carole Baskin joins cast of Dancing with the Stars

The Tiger Queen joins an absolutely bonkers lineup for the series.

Hey all you cool cats and kittens!


Carole Baskin has joined the cast of Dancing with the Stars in America.

The Tiger King star joins a cast that includes Backstreet Boys member AJ McLean, Super Bowl champion Vernon Davis, rap star Nelly, Catfish host Nev Schulman, Selling Sunset real estate agent Chrishell, and more.

The series will premiere on American television on 14 September with model and businesswoman Tyra Banks taking up hosting duties.

Last season’s cast sparked some controversy with the inclusion of former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, though it seems as though Baskin is the most controversial cast member in the upcoming series.


It is believed that Baskin was offered a slot on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, which will be filmed in Wales this year, but she opted for Dancing with the Stars instead.

Baskin rose to fame following the release of Tiger King on Netflix earlier this year, though you'd be forgiven for thinking that was about five years ago at this stage.

In 2018, Ireland's own Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch came third in the American version of the dancing show.
