Tiger King star Joe Exotic is launching a dating contest to find a new husband from his prison cell.

Joe, who is serving a 22-year sentence, believes he is on the verge of early release because of fresh evidence.

He said: “I have been through hell in three years and I intend to make my new life something I have always dreamed of.

“I want to spend it with someone that can take a relationship seriously and be in love and enjoy this ride.”

The dating show, titled Bachelor King, is asking all applicants to send in both a swimsuit and shirtless snap and asks: “Why would Joe fall in love with you?”

The top three picks will receive a three-night, four-day all-inclusive romantic getaway with Joe once he has been released.

A camera crew will follow the lovebirds on their romantic breaks and Joe, real name Joe Maldonado-Passage, hopes the footage will be picked up by a TV network.

The 58-year-old, recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, is in the midst of a divorce from his current partner Dillon Passage.

The former zoo owner was found guilty in 2019 of paying hitman Allen Glover more than £2,000 to kill big-cat rival Carole Baskin.

The rivalry between Exotic and Baskin was the subject of Tiger King, the Netflix documentary that exploded in popularity during lockdown last year.

Exotic’s lawyer John Phillips said: “We believe that with new evidence obtained proving conspiracy, obstruction of justice, perjury by federal agents and witnesses… that he will be freed by the end of the year, if not sooner.”
