A Cosby Kid, Reality Star, & More Make a Splash In Celebrity Diving Show
I guess they really can make a reality show out of pretty much anything. Premiering March 19 on ABC, Splash is a celebrity competition show that puts ten celebrities on the 10-meter high dive to perform synchronized stunts. According to E! Online, eight of the ten celebrities were recently announced. They celebrities are actress Keshia Knight Pulliam(The Cosby Show), comedian/actor Louie Anderson(Life with Louie), reality star Kendra Wilkinson(Kendra On Top), actor/singer Drake Bell(Drake & Josh), Chelsea Handler’s assistant Chuy Bravo(Chelsea Lately), defensive tackle for the Detroit Lions’ Ndamukong Suh, actress Nicole Eggert(Baywatch), and former Miss Alabama Katherine Webb. The final two celebrities will be revealed at a later time. You can view the website for the show here.
Personally, I’m worried that this show will not do well. The initial premise of the show is kind of interesting but I’m just not as excited to see this show as I am to see the newest season of Dancing with the Stars. Also, Fox recently did a similar idea with celebrities and diving, which was only a special, called Stars in Danger: The High Dive. The special, which celebrities included reality star Jenni “Jwoww” Farley(Jersey Shore), NFL wide receiver Terrell “T.O.” Owens, and Kyle and Kim Richards(The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), did not do well in the ratings via EW. In Splash, the celebrities will be trained by Olympic diving legend Greg Louganis, which I think is perfect since he is a great swimmer. The judges for the show are London Olympic U.S. Gold medalist David Boudia and Australian Olympic athlete and USA Dive Team director Steve Foley. Judging from their titles, I hope these guys will judge the celebrities like Simon Cowell(The X Factor) and Randy Jackson(American Idol) does on their respective shows. In all, as much as I’m hesitant to watch Splash, I still will give it a chance and hope that it can keep my attention.
