Beverly Hills 'Housewives,' JWoww and More Jump Off 'The High Dive' on FOX
Thursday, December 6, 2012
you want to see celebrities diving into a pool, you don't need to wait
until March 19. Following ABC's announcement of a new reality
competition called Celebrity Diving, which will premiere Tuesday,
March 19 at 8pm, FOX is beating them to the airwaves with a two-hour
special on Wednesday, January 9 called Stars in Danger: The High Dive.
That's right, two completely different celebrity diving shows will air this spring. The FOX special will be less of a competition and more of an event as eight celebrities take a crash course in diving techniques before competing in solo and synchronized dives.
Here is the cast of FOX's Stars in Danger: The High Dive
JWoww: Star of Jersey Shore
Kim Richards: Star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Kyle Richards: Star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Bethany Hamilton: Pro surfer and author and inspiration for Soul Surfer
Alexandra Paul: Former Baywatch star
David Chokachi: Former Baywatch star
Terrell Owens: Former NFL player
Antonio Sabato, Jr.: Actor, former underwear model and reality TV show staple
So if you want to see Antonio Sabato, Jr. in a speedo or the Richards sisters doing a synchronized dive, this is the show for you.
Stars in Danger: The High Dive is hosted by accomplished diver Troy Dumais who won a bronze medal at the London Olympics for synchronized diving.
While the FOX special is just for one night, ABC's Celebrity Diving will be a longer competition. The cast of celebrities has yet to be announced, though I have to imagine they will be of a slightly higher caliber than a bunch of reality TV stars. Celebrity Diving will feature Olympic diving legend Greg Lougains as a judge as well as David Boudia who won gold and bronze at the London Olympics.
Are you excited for two celebrity diving shows? Will you watch one or both?
