What is better than a tiger print? Bright pink tiger print.
Season 29 from DWTS premiered Sept. 14 with Tyra Banks as the new host, and stars such as Caitlin Bristow, Skye Jackson and Jesse Metcalfe joined Carol Baskin in the dance along with some professionals.
Although no one has ever questioned Carol’s clear love for tigers, I am personally impressed that she has managed to incorporate a tiger theme into her costumes, music and even dance moves. Let’s just say that the judges, however, felt that this was a bit excessive.
She and her partner Pasha Pashkov danced on Survivor’s “Tiger’s Eye” and wore matching bright pink costumes with a tiger print.
Pashkov started the dance by coming out of a giant cage and certainly didn’t get any less of a tiger from there.
The choreography included many tiger claw flashes, which was a unique choice for their dance.
Judge Bruno Toniolo definitely noticed their excessive tiger themes, noting, “You used those claws all the time. I thought you were going to dislocate your shoulder.”
The I dance with the stars the premiere episode also includes an advertisement for Carol’s missing husband, Don Louis. Don’s family appeared in the ad and specifically asked if anyone knew if Carol was involved in his disappearance.
Unfortunately, Carol’s tiger debut could also be one of her last performances, as the pair received the lowest score in the group of 11 points. Fortunately, no cuts were made this week, but the result will be included in the elimination round next week.
I’m really glad to see how they include tiger motifs in their next costumes, music and choreography.
