THE SECOND GROUP OF CELEBRITY CONTESTANTS FLIP,
FALL AND TRY NOT TO FLOP, ON ABC'S "SPLASH"
Five Celebrity Divers Will Compete and One Will Be Eliminated in a Final Dive-Off
"Episode 102" - After weeks of training with professional divers and being mentored by the world's most decorated and medaled diving legend, Greg Louganis, the second half of the ten celebrity contestants will face their fears as they flip, twist and spin into the depths of the pool below. The two with the lowest scores will go head to head in a dive-off to determine who will be the second contestant sent home, on "Splash," TUESDAY, MARCH 26 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.
"Splash" marks the first time 10 celebrities will train and compete in regulation platform and springboard diving at dizzying heights in front of a weekly poolside audience. Each week their dives will be critiqued by two judges, London Olympic U.S. Gold medalist David Boudia and Australian Olympic athlete and USA Dive Team director Steve Foley.
"Splash" is from Eyeworks USA and is based on the breakout hit and Dutch format, "Celebrity Splash." It is executive-produced by JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, Brant Pinvidic and Josh Greenberg.
