Which 'Tiger King' Character Are You Based On Your Zodiac Sign?

When Tiger King dropped on Netflix, the world was not ready. After the double-take we all did after watching the preview, most of us were helpless but to binge-watch the whole series in a daze. People everywhere collectively suffered whiplash from the wild twists and turns in the story of big cat showman Joe Exotic and his mortal enemy, Carole Baskin, along with a colorful cast of characters. It was more than we ever could've dreamed; sordid murder-for-hire plots, unregulated weaponry, zoo-based cults, mysterious disappearances... the list goes on. Now, as the credits rolled on that final episode and you gazed forward, slack-jawed and numb, only one question could have naturally occurred to you next:

"Just which Tiger King character am I most like, based solely on my zodiac sign?"

Well, wonder no longer, for the answers lay below.

  • Joe Exotic: Aries (March 21 - April 19)

    You are the Tiger King himself. As an Aries, you don't play second fiddle to anyone. This is your show, you're running it the way you want, and by God, if you want to own hundreds of tigers, then that's your business. You don't take kindly to anyone coming in and telling you how to live your life, just like Joe Exotic. You are not ashamed to be the brash person you are, because why would you be? You don't need reminding of how awesome you are, and you don't need anyone else's approval. You know that you belong in the spotlight, and you aren't afraid to show off when the attention is focused on you. With all this in mind, you often think that you'd make an excellent leader... say, the president, for instance.

    When an Aries makes an enemy, watch out. They will do anything and everything in their power to destroy them, even at the cost of their own happiness. The grudge comes first... always.

  • Saff Saffery: Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

    Tauruses are the kind of people who will be right back at work only days after getting an arm amputated, which is exactly what Saff Saffery did after getting mauled by a tiger. You realize that even in tough situations, there's no time for complaining or feeling sorry for yourself; there's work to be done, after all. When you have decided on something, there's really nothing anyone can do to get you to change your mind.

    As a Taurus, you also may have realized that you're one of the more down-to-earth people in your friend group or family. Even surrounded by total absurdity and irrational behavior in others, you will keep a level head, tell it like it is, and keep on truckin'. This also means that a lot of people come to rely on you and value you for your honesty, humility, and hard work.

  • Carole Baskin: Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

    Geminis naturally have the gift of the gab, and while this means they can tell an entertaining story or get a laugh, it also makes them exceptionally good liars. But you would never tell fibs, especially about something really important - right, Gemini? Right?

    You're very good at getting others to see things from your point of view because of your communication skills; no one can maintain a tale like you can, except maybe Carole Baskin. You also have been told that you have a very distinctive fashion sense, most likely. You tend to fixate on a particular style that you feel really represents who you are, or perhaps a specific print that you've taken a real shine to. Once you've found your look, you will absolutely commit to it with pride, paying no attention to how many raised eyebrows you might elicit.

    Because you have such a strong sense of self, you tend to dedicate yourself to a cause you feel is worthy. When you know something is right you will fight for it, no matter how many nasty people try to tear you down.

  • Brittany Peet: Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

    Can you get a little too overzealous about the just causes you're fighting for? It's been known to happen. But are you using that energy to do good in the world? Absolutely.

    Cancers' emotions run deep and they feel everything to their core. As a member of PETA, Brittany Peet fights to help tigers who are being exploited by private zoo owners. When you see injustice, especially when it's done to animals who cannot speak for themselves, your heart breaks. This pain galvanizes you to take action and put an end to immoral actions. You are not afraid to expose wrongdoers for who they truly are if it means a bad situation will be put to an end.
