ABC premiered a brand new reality show, Splash, on Tuesday.

The show featured ten contestants competing against each other by performing their best dive off of highboards. Each week, the reality star with the lowest score will be eliminated.

The show stars former Playboy model and reality star Kendra Wilkinson, former Miss Alabama Katherine Webb, basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, comedian Louie Anderson, singer Drake Bell, Chelsea Lately star Chuy Bravo, Rory Bishfield, former Baywatch star Nicole Eggert, actress Keisha Knight Pulliam and football player Ndamukomg Suh will all compete against each other each week in a 10-meter high dive.

During the Splash premiere episode on Tuesday, comedian Louie Anderson didn't dive, instead he toppled, but because it was the highest board, he was not eliminated.

Jabbar told the judges after he performed a half-flop that his "height is not an advantage. It's easier to do somersaults when you're not so long," Jabbar, 65, said of his 7'2' height. "Diving is a small person's game."

When Webb was asked how she ended up on the new ABC show, she replied: "How am I famous? Good question." 

Splash then aired the moment during the BCS Championship Game when the camera singled her out in the crowd and ESPN broadcast host Brent Musburger gushed over her beauty live on national television.

"Next thing you know, I'm a media sensation," Webb said. "My life changed overnight. I'm being presented with so many opportunities. I decided to do Splash because I'm more than a pretty face," she added.

"Katherine's fearless, I just hope she doesn't hurt herself in training," said trainer Greg Louganis.

Webb ended up with the two lowest scores of all ten contestants. She landed in the final two against former Cosby star Keisha Knight-Pulliam. Knight-Pulliam performed her dives on the lowest platform, which was 10 feet. Webb, however, first dived off of a 16-foot board and later, a 23-foot board. Because of her fearlessness, Webb got to stay and Knight-Pulliam was voted off.

All of the contestants received training from Olympic gold medalist diver Greg Louganis. They were coached on how to perform different stunts - flips, twists and turns - as they dive into the pool. They will be judged on their performance each week by Olympic-winning athletes David Boudia and USA Dive Tam director Steve Foley.

Splash airs Tuesdays on ABC at 8/7 c
