Dancing with the Stars: Eliminations:
After Charles and Emma, the next couple which got eliminated was of Carole Baskin and her partner Pasha Pashkov. Rather than Carole and Pasha, Judges chose to save Anne and her partner Keo in the competition. Carole is a cat enthusiast and in her last performance, she danced the samba while dressing up as a lion with her partner.
She runs a rescue camp for exotic big cats in Florida. A video of her pleading for votes was released shortly before the elimination. In the video, she said, “Dancing is extremely hard for me, and I need all your votes I could possibly get,” which shows that Carole is not a dancer.
“Tiger King”, the documentary based on Carole contributes to a long time search for her husband who disappeared. Even when she did not last long on the show but for what little time she was there, she used it to highlight her purpose.
The causes like Big Cat Public Safety Act are close to her. For more such articles and updates, stay tuned!
