Former business partner of Joe Maldonado Passage a.k.a Joe Exotic, Jeff Lowe, is so famous that you can now pay to have a personalised message from him on Cameo (but you can also pay for a Perez Hilton message, so…).
Last week, fan “Jonathan” sent out for a video, receiving more than he bargained for — an announcement that a second season was coming.
And now, just four days later, the Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness star and his wife Lauren, have made another exciting announcement.
In a video message via Cameo to US baseballer Justin Turner and his wife, Kourtney, the zoo owner claimed that: “Netflix is adding one more episode. It will be on next week. We’re filming here tomorrow.”
Ending the clip, Lowe tells the Turners to “Take care, stay safe, and put your mask on.”

On Thursday, April 4, Twitter user B.W.Carlin shared a now-infamous cameo clip of Lowe, addressing Jonathan.
After ranting about the state of the world for 20 seconds, he then confirmed (claimed) that there was going to be a second season of the series Tiger King.
While this isn’t an official confirmation, as Netflix has not announced it, Lowe must know something we don’t, right?!
“Stay strong, watch Season two. We won’t be there,” he said while Lauren nodded in the background.

While the entire world is encapsulated by the murder, mystery and mayhem of the show, Lowe himself is not a huge fan.
He and his wife, who currently run Exotic’s zoo, told The Media Exchange that they were unhappy with how they had been portrayed.
“They touched on about 10 per cent of the story,” he said. “And, you know, the portrayal of us stealing the zoo from Joe was very unfair because we came here to help him, we were going to get it back on its feet.
“We left to move away because we didn’t want to be in a zoo in Oklahoma, so the notion that we tried to steal the zoo from him his just ridiculous.”
Other members of the cast had also expressed their disapproval of how they were shown on camera, with Bhagavan “Doc” Antle even urging fans not to take the show seriously.
“This is a salacious, outrageous ride through a television show produced to create drama, to just tie you into some crazy train wreck of a story between the feud of Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic and the meltdown that ensued between two people who both are far too close to murder themselves, and I think a little bit of madness thrown in on their parts,” he told the media exchange.
Carole Baskin was also none too pleased, especially since the show’s inception, there has been a whole online internet movement alluding to the fact that she murdered her husband and fed him to her tigers.
“There are no words for how disappointing it is to see that the series not only does not do any of that but has had the sole goal of being as salacious and sensational as possible to draw viewers,” she wrote in a lengthy statement on her website.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, producers Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin spoke about the possibility of another season of the hit series.
“I mean, yes we have a crazy amount of footage and it’s a story that’s still unfolding,” Chaiklin told the outlet.
“We’re not sure yet, but there could be a follow-up on this story because there’s a lot that’s still unfolding in it, and it’ll be just as dramatic and just as colourful as what has unfolded these past few years.”
