Carole Baskin got low scores and was not saved by fan votes on Monday’s episode of “Dancing With the Stars.”
Much to the delight of fans, the “Tiger King” star was sent home after performing a samba to the song “Circle of Life” from “The Lion King” on Disney Night.
Baskin, 59, and her partner, Pasha Kovalev, sported lion costumes and makeup during the routine.

After the performance, the judges struggled to say anything positive about the routine.
Judge Bruno Tonioli said: “I am stunned. In fact, I have never, ever seen a samba like this. I don’t know where to start – but if you were dancing with the Brooklyn Bridge you might have more bounce.
Carrie Ann Inaba told Baskin that she has “beautiful hands” when she dances. She added, “But samba is more than that. Most of the other things were missing. ”
Inaba, 52, gave him the highest score among the judges with a 5. Derek Hough scored Baskin a 4. Finally, Tonioli gave the competitor a 3.
