Stars In Danger: The High Dive features sports and TV celebrities trying their best to master Olympic style diving competitions. Obviously the house money should go to athletes who have endurance (former NFL player Terrell Owens) or years of experience in the water (surfer Bethany Hamilton).
“The interesting thing about the competition is just the competition itself, just challenging yourself obviously, you know, diving,” says Owens. “I never did it, you know growing up not competitively anyway so I just figure that it was a way to, you know, kind of just challenge myself, you know, mentally and obviously it’s different from football. So I’m always up for new challenges and what better else than diving”.

As for Hamilton, the surfer says diving is a completely different aspect of water sports. “You’re going in head first and you have to protect your neck and your head, and keep your body in alignment and it’s tricky, so I’ve been trying to overcome – I think slowly, as you build more and more confidence going to a higher level will be a bit easier, but yeah, it’s been scarier than I thought it would be.”

Other celebs receiving help from Olympic diving medalist Troy Dumais include Jersey Shore vet Jwoww, Antonio Sabato Jr., Kyle Richards (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), dancer Stephen “tWitch” Boss, David Chokachi, and Alexandra Paul.
“I love water; I love the ocean; I love pools; I hate heights. I am petrified of heights,” says Jenni “JWoww” Farley. “I actually almost had a nervous breakdown on the three meter the other day and T.O. actually had to come rescue me. I’m like panic stricken when it comes to heights. So yeah, not so good, you know, especially in a diving competition, that’s going to really work well with that.”
