The Tiger King star has reportedly been offered a considerable sum of money to compete in the upcoming season of the ITV reality TV show.
A source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre TV column:
‘Jungle producers have made a formal approach and hope she will do it’.
ITV would not confirm the approach and said:
‘All names at this stage are speculation’.
Animal rights activist Carole, 59, gained a higher profile after her bitter rivalry with private zoo owner Joe Exotic was featured on Netflix’s Tiger King.
Exotic – whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage – is currently serving 22 years in prison for plotting to murder Carole, and in another twist to the saga, Carole was recently granted control of his Oklahoma zoo.
A federal judge in the western district court of Oklahoma ruled that Joe previously fraudulently transferred the property to his mother Shirley Schreibvogel, to avoid paying Carole a settlement in a trademark infringement lawsuit.
As a result, Carole was awarded The G.W. Exotic Animal Memorial Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma.
The zoo has been run by Joe’s former business partner Jeff Lowe since 2016 but he was recently given 120 days to vacate the property, including removing all of his animals currently housed there, before Carole seizes control, according to a copy of the ruling published by the Courthouse News Service.
