Earlier this month, it was announced that the Tigress herself would be on Dancing with The Stars, shocking everyone with this unexpected turn of events. Many people started back up the conspiracies of Carole Baskin feeding her missing husband to the tigers. These rumors weren’t really popular until a few years after Don Lewis had initially gone missing; they only really took root when Mrs. Baskin had become a popular star in Hollywood. No one knows if she really did do it, since there isn’t enough evidence to prove anything, but many seem convinced she threw him to the tigers, including Mr. Lewis’ family.

 

But before he was a millionaire, he was a farmhand and mechanic. He started out working odd jobs including farming, until he made his way to mechanics, where he got into the car business. He had a goal to reach and nothing was going to stop him.

 

Late Monday night, on the premiere of Dancing With The Stars season 29, a commercial popped up that grabbed everyone’s attention. The family of Don Lewis made their appearance on national television, asking for help in finding where Mr. Lewis is, and even go so far as to ask if Mrs. Baskin was involved in his disappearance. The commercial showed his three daughters, his former assistant, and the family attorney. When explaining how the family needs closure for what happened to their father, the attorney states “Don Lewis mysteriously disappeared in 1997, his family deserves answers, they deserve justice. Do you know who did this, or if Carole Baskin was involved?” Mrs. Baskin did make a video in response to this commercial a few hours after it had aired, but she was only talking about how the people who did this have nothing better to do with their time. Insinuating that looking for their missing father is not worthwhile, and that they should just stop slandering her ‘good’ name. Now, it just makes you wonder, who in advertising approved that commercial to be run during the show Carole Baskin was on?
