TV show description:
In this reality competition, 11 celebrities train and compete in regulation platform and springboard diving at dizzying heights in front of a weekly poolside audience.

Each week the celebrities leap off the 10-meter high dive, pair off to complete synchronized stunts, and flip, twist and spin into the depths of the pool below. The level of difficulty increases as the competition progresses. One celebrity is eliminated from the competition at the end of each episode.

The contestants are mentored and given weeks of training by Greg Louganis, the world’s most decorated and medaled diving legend. Each dive is critiqued by two judges; London Olympic US Gold medalist David Boudia and Australian Olympic athlete and USA Dive Team director Steve Foley.

The show is presented by actor/host Joey Lawrence and sportscaster Charissa Thompson.

Series Finale

Episode #8
The three finalists were Drake Bell, Nicole Eggert, and Rory Bushfield. Bell came in third and Eggert fell on her back during her final dive but was not seriously injured. Bushfield ultimately won the competition.
First aired: May 7, 2013.

Time to let this “Stinker” off the air!!!!

Renew! It’s both inspiring and fun to watch those rank novices progress up the boards and platforms, and the gals rise to compete with the boys for the gold.

Might as well mark it as cancelled. It wasn’t on the line-up for fall.

It’s a very entertaining show to watch, however, it is dangerous at the same time. It should DEFINITELY NOT RETURN for another season (and any future seasons years from now).
Can you Imagine landing flat on your belly/back at a full speed dive and injuring yourself. Put yourself in the contestants shoes who have injured themselves because of this show. You would then be against it too! Don’t be insane, use your brain!


Donald March 3, 2014 at 11:54 pm

I don’t see the contestants (b-list celebs – who are getting paid) complaining about it, only you. I definitely hope it comes back this year!

I think it is awful how far they push the ones not built for the sport. After the basketball player got the concussion I stopped watching in fear they would kill someone next.

I had rather see someone get better and better on a lower dive than kill them self on the higher board.

Ming…I agree with you completely. It would much better if they did what you suggested. Start small then move up when they’re ready. I stopped watching too because it distressed me to think that someone would end up paralyzed or seriously injured or God forbid dead!

Best show ever! Please renew!


Janna Schroeder April 10, 2013 at 12:07 am

KEEP SPLASH!!! Please do not cancel this show, it is inspiring! We need shows that have people stepping out of their normal comfort zones and pushing themselves to what they THINK they can’t! I am sick of the violence and sex that you think it takes to sell a show! SPLASH, like DWTS has people who are admired for one thing, stepping out and trying new things and we NEED MORE of these type of shows. You would be foolish to cancel it.


dera April 3, 2013 at 9:57 pm

I think some of these stunts are really stupid

its not like watching professional diving or anything
they do things any kid can do

and these guys are professionals? at what??

put it out!!!!!!!!!!


Janna Schroeder April 10, 2013 at 12:11 am

Dera, these people ARE professionals, educate yourself and look them up,. What is NEW for them is doing something they NEVER thought they could! And that is the INSPIRING part of the show. What is it you thought you could never do? Go out and try it, then come back and comment. How about you try a dive from 33 ft? Have you ever? I tried one at 15 and almost ruptured my eardrum,. It all about pushing yourself, which something more people need to do.


Jane Shedoudy March 26, 2013 at 11:23 pm

I think it should not be canceled especially because I can look at Greg Louganis.
