Get ready all you cool cats and kittens, the Tiger Queen is gracing our televisions once again.

It’s that time of year—the reveal of the new cast of Dancing With The Stars. Whether you’re an avid follower of the show or not, chances are you always see who has made the cut on social media. There have been some pretty notable figures on the show in the past, carefully curated from an impressive (sometimes washed up) pool of athletes, actors, reality stars, musicians, and random celebs like Bill Nye the Science Guy or Honey Boo Boo. Truly no stone goes unturned in that casting department.

This year is no different, and what would their 2020 lineup be without the official queen of the pandemic: Carole Baskin.

The announcement was made this morning by Good Morning America by tweeting ‘Just In: #TigerKing’s @Carole_Baskin joins the cast of @DancingABC season 29!’

“She’s dancing from Big Cat Rescue all the way to the Ballroom, and even bringing her cat!” they announced over an incredibly appropriate video of her twirling around, dancing with a stuffed cat. Whether she’s bringing the stuffed one or the real one remains a mystery, but both are equally confusing.

How long do you think it’ll take before she does the foxtrot to ‘Eye of the Tiger’? My bet is 2 episodes.

As you can imagine, this news has broken the internet, with first reactions being mixed. Many people are excited to cheer her on, while a good majority have a few…opinions about it. Here are some shared by Twitter users that might give you a good laugh:

Grab your flower crowns, skip the sardine oil, and tune in on September 14th to watch Carole Baskin most definitely tear up the dance floor in a tiger-themed outfit.
