Dancing for good! Carole Baskin revealed that it would be a "side benefit" if her missing husband was found due to her appearance on Dancing With the Stars.

TMZ asked the controversial TV star if she hoped the commercial that ' family ran during the premiere of DWTS would help solve the mystery of his disappearance. "That would be wonderful," Baskin, 59, said.

Baskin sashayed into the ballroom this week on the new season of DWTS, and during one of the commercial breaks, an ad was taken out by Lewis' daughters, where they asked the public to come forward with any new leads in their father's case. The family offered a $100,000 reward for any new information about the millionaire.

Lewis was declared dead in 2002 but that hasn’t stopped his family from demanding answers. Lewis' sudden disappearance in 1997 was brought into the spotlight after the hit show Tiger King was released on Netflix earlier this year.

Many of those interviewed — including the Tiger King himself Joe Exotic — has publicly accused Baskin of killing her husband and feeding them to her tigers.

However, Baskin has emphatically denied all the allegations and expressed her anger with how producers misrepresented her character on the hit Netflix docuseries. In a 3,000 word blog post titled "Refuting Netflix Tiger King," the Big Cat Rescue owner said that her portrayal was "disappointing."

"It has a segment devoted to suggesting, with lies and innuendos from people who are not credible, that I had a role in the disappearance of my husband Don in 1997," she wrote.

Unfortunately, Baskin’s debut on DWTS didn’t go as well as she had hoped. She danced a paso doble to the ironic song 'Eye of the Tiger' — scoring only 11 out of 30 possible points — in her quest for the mirrorball trophy.

The View’s Meghan McCain called Baskin a "terrible dancer" and said she "felt bad for watching it afterward because she is an alleged murderer."

Dancing With the Stars airs on ABC Tuesday, September 22, at 8 p.m. ET.
