Carole Baskin to dance to Eye of the Tiger
Tiger King star Carole Baskin will begin her time on Dancing With The Stars with a performance to Survivor classic 'Eye of the Tiger'.

Carole Baskin's first dance on Dancing With The Stars will be performed to 'Eye of the Tiger', it has been confirmed.

The 59-year-old 'big cat sanctuary' owner has become a household name this year thanks to the Netflix miniseries Tiger King, which documented her long-standing rivalry with zookeeper Joe Exotic.

Speaking to E! ahead of her DWTS debut next Monday, Baskin revealed that she has been given approval to dance to Survivor's apt 1982 hit 'Eye of the Tiger', famously featured in Rocky III.

"We are doing Eye Of The Tiger, I'm so excited about that," she said, before going on to discuss her costume options.

"I told the costume department, 'No fur, no feathers, no leather'. But anything else, I don't care how wild. I just said to have a blast. I can't wait to find out what they come up with."

Other celebs joining Baskin on the dancefloor include Backstreet Boys' AJ McLean, Desperate Housewives star Jesse Metcalfe and rapper Nelly.
