Good episode? Give it some love!
Before Tiger King, before Carole Baskin, before even Siegfried and Roy, there was husband and wife Ron and Joy - two gloriously tacky (but crazy talented) dancers, who decided to spice up their show by bringing in the ultimate back-up performers: tigers. And leopards. Oh, and the occasional jaguar. Add to the mix their shared boy toy Chuck Lizza, throw in some sequins and buckle down for a crazy story... that obviously ends in more than one person getting eaten.
