However, unfortunately for Baskin, the mysterious disappearance of her husband Don Lewis, and accusations that Baskin was involved in his alleged murder, continued to haunt her as the family of Lewis appeared in one of the commercials during the episode asking for tips about his disappearance. Some, including titular Tiger King Joe Exotic, claim Baskin was involved - a suggestion she has vehemently denied.
Carole has always maintained her innocence in Don's case.
Still, Baskin's missing husband Don Lewis will come up in conversation again with a new commercial from his family.
Dancing with the Stars viewers were left in shock on Monday night after the family of Carole Baskin's missing ex-husband appealed for information about his disappearing - during an ad break on the popular show on which Carole is now a contestant.
Don Lewis' family bought a commercial during the premiere of Dancing With the Stars to ask for tips about his whereabouts. Carole Baskin is on Dancing With The Stars.
"As part of that, it has a segment devoted to suggesting, with lies and innuendos from people who are not credible, that I had a role in the disappearance of my husband Don 21 years ago".
The Tiger King star, who rose to fame on the Netflix docuseries earlier this year, danced to "Eye of the Tiger" in her first appearance on the U.S. version of Strictly Come Dancing. Also, unofficially, it'll probably serve as a way for the family to troll Carole a little bit, which makes some sense considering they think her appearance on the show is "grossly insensitive". It features Don's daughters Gale, Lynda and Donna, plus his former assistant Anne McQueen and the family attorney.
