After finding themselves with a lot of extra free time on their hands, Carly Peace and Michael Ray have turned to the popular Netflix series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness to keep them entertained while self-quarantining in their Nashville home.

While the couple typically binge-watches shows like The Bachelor, Pearce admits they’ve become a bit obsessed with Tiger King.

“Now, our current obsession together is Tiger King. I don’t know how to even begin to explain what I feel about that,” she confessed during a recent interview with her record label. “It is out of control.  If none of you have watched it, you have to watch it.”

At the time of the interview, the couple had not finished watching the entire true-crime series, however, Pearce shared that parts of the show were “too much” for her to watch.

“Michael and I aren’t finished with it but there’s a few parts in it that like, I can’t physically watch. It’s too much for me,” she admitted. “What a weird group of people in society that you didn’t even know was real. I mean, I just can’t believe it.”

Michael Ray recently Tweeted about his love for the series, writing, “The fact that we are #Quarantine the same time the Tiger King is out proves the universe has our back.”

Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness details the life of Joe Exotic and other collectors of big cats in the United States. The series also induces Carole Baskin, a big cat conservationist, who accuses people like Joe Exotic of abusing and exploiting the animals.
