Splash is a new reality competition series on ABC which features 10 stars training and going head to head in Olympic style diving. The coach awarded the daunting task of training these 10 amateur divers, is none other than four time Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis, one of the most decorated divers to ever walk this planet. Louganis takes former NBA legend Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, comedian and voice actor Louie Anderson, former Playboy playmate Kendra Wilkinson, former child star Keisha Knight Pulliam, actress Nicole Eggert, actor and singer songwriter Drake Bell, Miss Alabama USA Katherine Webb, talk show sidekick Chuy Bravo, US soccer star Brandi Chastain, and professional skier Rory Bushfield through weeks of grueling training to prepare them for the competition. Splash gives us a glimpse into our celebrities lives, all while documenting each contestants attempt at conquering the perils of the platform. 2012 Olympic Gold medalist David Boudia, who dominated the 10 meter platform in London, along with US Olympic dive team director Steve Foley, critique the divers on their execution and degree of difficulty, while also providing useful tips to help them succeed in upcoming challenges. Finally each contestant is given a score from one to ten, with ten being a perfect dive. The competition includes 10 meter high dives, spring board dives, as well as synchronized team stunts. With the screaming crowd of hundreds below cheering on our novice divers, they attempt a slew of flips and twists galore in pursuit of high marks from the judges. And wether triumphant upon entry or belittled by the belly flop, one by one each will be eliminated until the final diver remains as the inaugural Splash champion. Tune in Tuesday nights 8pm to 9pm EST.
