This is probably the strangest fan theory I’ve ever heard, but some Tiger King fans are convinced that Jeff Lowe is actually Carol Baskin’s first husband.
Just in case you haven’t watched the Netflix docuseries yet, I’m warning you now that there are spoilers in this article.
If you are one of the very few people who haven’t watched the show yet, then you’re really missing out.
Tiger King is one of the maddest docuseries I’ve ever seen.
Anyway, some fans of the show have come up with a rather interesting fan theory.
One of the big questions of the show is whether Big Cat Rescue’s Carol Baskin murdered her husband (Don Lewis) or not.
However, she was married before meeting Don, who mysteriously vanished and left all his money to Carol in the process.
People think Jeff Lowe from Tiger King is Carol Baskin’s first husband
Before marrying Don, she was married to another man, Michael Murdock, who was reportedly a very abusive man.
Fans now think that Jeff Lowe, one of the show’s other strange characters, is actually Michael in disguise.
One of the fans wrote on Twitter: “Someone on Facebook said Jeff Lowe is Carole Baskin’s first (abusive) husband & she hired him to frame Joe Exotic and I can’t stop thinking about it.”
This fan theory has gained some traction online, but the ages just don’t match up.
Michael would now be 81 years old and saw what you want about Jeff, he doesn’t look 81.
What do you make of this fan theory?
Do you think that Tiger King’s Jeff Lowe could really be Carol Baskin’s first husband?
