The new participants, including "Tiger King" star Carole Baskin, and their professional dance partners for Season 29 were revealed Tuesday on "Good Morning America," though you will have to tune in to the first show to see the pairings.

Like all cool cats and kittens, Carole Baskin is going to "Dancing With the Stars."

The reality TV star who became a pop culture sensation with Netflix's docuseries "Tiger King" is joining the new crop of celebrity dancers that includes TV and film actress Anne Heche, former NBA star Charles Oakley and Backstreet Boys singer AJ McLean.

The new season premieres on ABC on Sept. 14.

On the Netflix series "Tiger King", Baskin, who owns a big cat refuge, sought to shut down Joseph Maldonado-Passage's for-profit breeding of big cats. His nickname is "Joe Exotic" and her signature line is "cool cats and kittens."

Maldonado-Passage is serving a 22-year federal prison term for killing five tigers and plotting to have Baskin killed. In June, a federal judge awarded Baskin ownership of the private Oklahoma zoo run by Maldonado-Passage.

Here's the season's full cast of stars:
