Not one, but two diving shows! This is unprecedented. ABC will air a show that is a series and based on a popular Dutch series "Sterren Springen." Each week the celebrities that participate are asked to do more and more difficult dives and they are eliminated until one "diver" is deemed the winner. One of the judges for this show will be Olympic medalist Greg Louganis.
Not to be upstaged, FOX will air a two-hour special titled 'Stars in Danger: The High Dive.' It is set to debut on January 9, 2013 and will feature 2012 Olympic medalist Troy Dumais. The list of participants is intriguing: JWoww, Jersey Shore; Bethany Hamilton, professional surfer; Alexandra Paul, Baywatch alum; Kim Richards, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills; Kyle Richards, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills; David Chokachi, Baywatch alum; Terrell Owens, former NFL star; Antonio Sabato Jr., actor/model.
I will be excited to see who smacks first!
