The "Tiger King" is looking for a mate, following his recently announced divorce from his husband. 

Joe Maldonado-Passage, also known as "Joe Exotic", is currently in prison but is seeking a date for when he's released. 

According to a news release, Joe Exotic's criminal attorney "is confident that, with all the new evidence that has been obtained proving conspiracy, obstruction of justice, perjury by federal agents, and witnesses, in addition to prosecutor misconduct and the federal judge being a long-time friend of one of the main witnesses in Joe’s case, that he will be freed by the end of the year, if not sooner."

"The Bachelor King" contest is open to men over 18 years old who are interested in being the "next romance in Joe's new life." 

The top three men chosen will be given a four-day, three-night all-inclusive paid getaway with the Tiger King once he's been released.

Joe Exotic said his soon-to-be ex-husband will always be in his life, but will not continue to be married to him "after all that has happened." 

"I have been through hell in three years and I intend on making my new life something I have always dreamed of and I want to spend it with someone that can take a relationship serious and be in love and enjoy this ride, and make this about us as a team, not just me or the man I choose to carry on with. I want to share this with someone great," Joe said in the news release.

This contest is only for men, but the Tiger King says he'll hold another contest for ladies following this one.
