"Episode 107" - A masked mystery celebrity diver will take the 10 meter plunge and the four remaining celebrities will dive for a spot in the finale. Each celebrity will select their board height and will be assigned a dive by Dive Master and coach Greg Louganis. The celebrity with the highest score and audience vote will automatically secure a guaranteed place in the finale, while the remaining three celebrities will compete against each other in the first ever three-way dive-off, where two celebrities will move forward and one will be sent home. Also this week, injured celebrity diver Chuy Bravo returns to the pool as Greg's assistant, on "Splash," TUESDAY, APRIL 30 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

"Splash" marks the first time ten celebrities will train and compete in regulation platform and springboard diving at dizzying heights in front of a weekly poolside audience. After training with professional divers and being mentored by the world's most decorated and medaled diving legend, Greg Louganis, 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.
