Derek Hough Speaks About Carole Baskin on ‘DWTS’

Dancing with the Stars judge Derek Hough is opening up about Carole Baskin, who was eliminated this week.

She “seemed lovely and nice and put herself out there,” he said in an interview with Page Six.

Carole, who has been accused of killing her husband Don Lewis by rival Joe Exotic in the Netflix hit Tiger King, spoke to Tamron Hall about the allegations.

“If anything could lead us to any kind of conclusion on what happened to Don, then that would be fabulous because my name would be cleared,” she told Tamron. “But I really think that he just crashed a private plane over the Gulf, and I don’t think that offering a reward is going to help prove that.”

Still, Derek only views Carole through the lens of DWTS.

“I am there to see the person in the moment — the person before me, not what comes around them,” he said, adding, “It’s not my job, but it’s also the way I have always been. I always just take my personal experiences with people.”

Well, we guess we’ll see what happens.
