Baskin this week debuted as a contestant on the new season of "Dancing With the Stars".

It seems The View co-host Joy Behar missed the part of Netflix's docuseries Tiger King where it's claimed Carole Baskin may have murdered her former husband Don Lewis.

Don Lewis' three kids and their attorney, John Phillips, purchased 50 seconds of air time for a commercial during the USA competition show on Monday (14Sep20), which they used to offer a $100,000 (£77,000) reward is being offered for any leads into his 1997 disappearance.

Yes, it's fair to say that she brutally murdered the pasodoble and the rhythm of that song has gone mysteriously missing, possibly never to be found.


As we said before, it was during this time that Don Lewis' family aired a commercial asking for information regarding his case. When asked if she hopes the commercial will help find Lewis, Baskin said that would be "wonderful" and a great "side benefit" to her appearance on the reality show.

The family are now offering a $100,000 reward for information about his whereabouts.

Baskin, the CEO of Big Cat Recuse in Tampa, Florida, has repeatedly denied wrongdoing.

Baskin, 59, who had him legally declared dead in 2002, has now slammed the advert as a "publicity stunt". Despite this, his children are still searching for answers.


In the Tiger King doco series, Baskin's arch-nemesis Joe Exotic - he is now in jail for plotting to kill Baskin - accused her of killing Lewis and feeding his remains to tigers. A lot of people?

Attorney for the Lewis family, John Philips released a YouTube ahead of the Dancing with the Stars premiere on Monday.

Other Tiger King-related shows in the works include a Nicolas Cage-fronted scripted series for Amazon, an Animal Project doc titled Surviving Joe Exotic and NBCUniversal drama Joe Exotic (working title). As does everyone's family of a victim of an unsolved crime.
