Tonight’s Dancing with the Stars 29 closed with a performance from none other than Carole Baskin. Why is she a part of this show? That’s something we’re still trying to figure out.
Carole is, by far, the most controversial contestants of the season — and we’re not really sure what her fanbase is going to be out there. We can’t say that we’re altogether surprised that she was cast, though, largely due to the fact that this is a franchise that loves to throw controversial people out there onto the ballroom floor. It’s just an enormous part of their DNA by and large.

So what did Carole and her partner Pasha perform in the premiere? We knew entering the episode that her song choice was “Eye of the Tiger” — go figure, given her noteworthy status from Tiger King.
The hard thing about Carole at the moment is simple: She has zero dance experience. She’s not someone who seemingly knows what she’s doing out there, and Pasha has to work with her from the ground up. Let’s make it clear — Carole isn’t a good dancer. She was a little bit more game than we really expected it to be, but she did try to at least nail the moves and the technical nature of the dance.
As for the score, Carole got an 11 — the lowest overall score of the night. This wasn’t exactly something that is going to draw a lot of votes, to say the least.
