THE REMAINING EIGHT CELEBRITIES ARE PAIRED UP
FOR PARTNER DIVES, ON ABC'S "SPLASH"
The Bottom Scoring Duo Must Dive Against One Another; One Will Be Eliminated in a Final Dive-Off
"Episode 103" - They have learned how to dive alone, but can they dive together? The eight remaining celebrities will be paired up with one of their competitors to compete in a partner dive where they'll take the plunge together. After training together all week, the bottom scoring duo will go head to head against each other in a dive-off to determine who will be the third contestant sent home, on "Splash," TUESDAY, APRIL 2 (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.
