With Doc Antle.

The legend of the Tiger King characters continues to grow. Bhagavan ‘Doc’ Antle was one of the characters in the documentary that kind of flew under the radar. He wasn’t a part of the main Joe Exotic vs Carol Baskin rivalry so he would disappear for an episode or so but whenever he was on screen it was captivating. I mean he basically runs a cult. If you haven’t seen it, I don’t know how you’re existing on the internet but he named himself Bhagavan which means ‘lord’ and recruits young women to come work for him, changes their names to some weird shit, and has crazy orgies with these girls while tigers roam around them.
Let’s time travel back to 2001. Britney Spears is the biggest pop star on the planet, one of the sexiest women on the planet, and is about to perform at the VMAs (which actually mattered at the time). She wants to put on the biggest, most iconic performance in award show history with a jungle theme. She wants some live fucking animals on stage to make this thing badass so who else would she call? The legendary Doc Antle. Then she went ahead and did put on one of the most iconic live performances EVER.

I mean good lord. Britney HAD IT back then. But if you can look past that, you’ll notice our old pal Bhagavan was on stage the ENTIRE TIME during one of the most legendary live performances ever. He was IN A CAGE!!! WITH BRITNEY SPEARS!!! AND A TIGER!!!via Youtube
Honestly, I don’t know how these characters get more and more fascinating but it continues to happen. Tiger King forever.
