ABC Dancing With The Stars Season 29 spoilers indicate that while it doesn’t look like Carole Baskin will be scoring any high marks from the judges this year, she is certainly one celebrity on the dance floor who is generating the most headlines. That’s because there is still controversy surrounding Carole Baskin of Netflix’s documentary Tiger King and the mystery looming behind what really happened to her missing husband, Don Lewis. Here’s what you need to know.
Dancing With The Stars Season 29 Cast: Did ABC Hit An All-New Low With Carole Baskin?
During the first night of Dancing With The Stars, in which Carole danced to the classic hit Eye of The Tiger, Don Lewis’ family ran an ad during the show. In the commercial, his ex-wife, two daughters, and former assistant all plead for more information about his whereabouts along with the truth of what really happened during his disappearance. There is speculation that Carole allegedly fed him to one of her tigers at her animal sanctuary in Tampa, but she has denied those claims.
This past week Carole Baskin had responded to the ad, hinting that she believes finding her ex-husband would help put all of this behind everyone. In an email sent to CNN, the owner of Big Cat Rescue wrote, “I believe their actions are just a publicity stunt, but if it helps us find Don, then that will be a huge relief.”

If that weren’t enough, in a blog post that DWTS’ Carole Baskin wrote back in May, Carole slammed her portrayal in Tiger King, calling it nothing but sensational entertainment. So far she has not made any additional comments about the issue or about her ex-husband’s family.
“As part of that, it has a segment devoted to suggesting, with lies and innuendos from people who are not credible, that I had a role in the disappearance of my husband Don in 1997,” she wrote.
In the meantime though, there’s a good chance that Carole will continue to try and impress the judges with her fancy footsteps before she is thrown to the lions too, or rather, kicked off the show.
