Tiger King star Joe Exotic’s ex-husband John Finlay has shown off a dramatic new transformation as he unveils a sparkling new set of teeth.
As everyone who is now obsessed with the Netflix documentary (same girl, same) will know, John Finlay, an employee at the GW Zoo, was also the long-term partner of the programme’s main subject and star, Joe Exotic.
Exotic is currently serving a 22-year sentence for the murder-for-hire plot against animal rights activist Carole Baskin.
Finlay was featured throughout the series, where most of his time to camera was spent topless and speaking with very few teeth in his mouth.
Now, pictures have emerged of the star brandishing a new set of gnashers, in a transformation that many fans of the show will appreciate following the viral success of the documentary.
According to TMZ, Finlay told the publication that he actually had his new teeth, which are dentures, sorted in July 2019 – but none of the footage made its way into the show.
In an update on his love life as well, the former zoo worker confirmed that he is now working in central Oklahoma and is now engaged to a woman.
Tiger King has been hailed since its debut as one of the most disturbing documentaries on Netflix (and trust us, that’s saying something).
After a rollercoaster seven episodes, the show ended with Joe Exotic, real name Joseph Maldanado-Passage, behind bars for his involvement in a murder-for-hire plot against activist Carole Baskin, as well as numerous charges of animal cruelty.
It’s since been announced that Exotic is currently seeking both a $94 million settlement and a presidential pardon against his charges.
Since the series has dropped, Carole has since hit out at Tiger King, accusing the seven-part series of being ‘salacious and sensational’ just to draw viewers – after the mysterious disappearance of her ex-husband was discussed.
Blasting speculation that she had anything to do with his disappearance, she added: ‘There is no short, simple way to refute so many lies.
‘If you do want to know the truth, it requires understanding the history of events in the years before my husband’s disappearance and the roles and behaviours of the people interviewed in the series.’
It’s also been announced that Carole’s life will be getting the small-screen treatment as she’s going to be portrayed by Saturday Night Live star Kate McKinnon in a new limited series.
Tiger King is available to stream now on Netflix.
