“Tiger King” star Carole Baskin has been eliminated from ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”

This doesn’t really come as a huge surprise to many, but I thought she’d maybe make it a few rounds just because the audience thought it was funny. When it came down to it, judges Derek Hough and Bruno Tonioli chose to save Anne Heche on Monday night instead, according to CNN.

Before Baskin graced the stage in a lion costume dancing to “Circle Of Life” (really it can’t get worse than that), she pleaded with fans to vote for her. (RELATED: Carole Baskin Hit With Defamation Lawsuit By Family Of Missing Husband)

“Dancing is extremely hard for me, and I need all your votes I could possibly get,” Baskin said in a video shared to Facebook.

The performance was terrible, but I always like to cheer them on just because you know they’re trying their hardest.


This season has honestly been a little bit boring. Keeping Baskin around for longer would have at least brought a little drama to the show considering right after the premiere the family of her missing ex-husband sued her for defamation.

Things could have only gotten weirder from here, so I’m a little disappointed.
