Carole Baskin and Canadian reality TV star to appear on Dancing With the Stars

Tiger King's Carole Baskin will be joined by former Bachelorette and Canadian reality television star Kaitlyn Bristowe for the 2020 edition of Dancing with the Stars.

On Tuesday, the ever-popular competition show unveiled their 2020 cast which includes the Leduc, Alberta native who first rose to fame on the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise

Bristowe, who starred as the eleventh Bachelorette, is known as being the show's most dramatic and controversial lead.

Fans have taken to Twitter to show their support for Bristowe, with some even saying that she is the only reason they'll be watching Dancing With the Stars this season. 

"Haven’t watched DWTS in at least 10 years and I am proud to add it back to my DVR just to watch you," a fan tweeted to Bristowe. 

Since her season of the Bachelorette, Bristowe has gone on to launch her own wine called Spade & Sparrows which sold 6,000 bottles within 48 hours of launching.

She is also the creator and host of the Off The Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe podcast where she has candid conversations with a variety of different guests including her fellow Bachelor/Bachelorette stars. 

Other noteworthy stars who will be appearing on this season of Dancing singer Nelly, actress Skai Jackson, the Backstreet Boys' AJ McLean, and Selling Sunset's Chrishell Stause. 

But most people seem obsessed about the announcement of Carole Baskin.
