Um… I have looked at several official sites to confirm that what I am about to tell you is an actual show because I feel like we are getting punked. But apparently our friends at Fox are preparing a show for us that involves celebrities most people have never heard of competing for a prize. Remember that ice skating show Bethenny Frankel was on that one time? Well, it’s even dumber than that. The show is called Stars in Danger: The High Dive. Click through for the ridiculous details.
According to FOX, “Based on a long-running German format, STARS IN DANGER: THE HIGH DIVE is the ultimate test for eight celebrities who will step to the edge and take a flying leap or momentous belly flop into diving history. But, first, they must complete a crash-course in diving techniques, overseen by renowned diving coaches. After an intense training period, they will compete in a series of Olympic-style dives, including solo high diving and synchronized diving, from a variety of heights. With the help of Olympic diving medalist and commentator Troy Dumais, viewers will also get a poolside look at the courage and perseverance – as well as the twists, turns and flips – that go into turning a celebrity into an expert – or not so expert – diver.”
No. Really. Some people at FOX has this great idea. I can see them sitting around the table coming up with the concept. Hey, I know, let’s get some G-list celebrities and try to teach them how to dive off a high dive. It will be a great little special after the holidays. And hey, let’s pick a bunch of people who drink a lot and tend to cause headlines for bad behavior, like Terrell Owens and that JWOWW chick from Jersey Shore and that lady fresh out of rehab from that one housewives show. This will be awesome.
The finale of the special will be shot on December 15th in Greenboro NC. I am assuming that is because they have the most lax safety laws. I am off to prepare my post for December 16th entitled Kim Richards Returns to Rehab! if we are lucky or Reality Star Goes KERPLAT! During Serious Diving Accident. The PR blurb says there will be eight people competing but the photochopped picture only has six. The 8 contestants are supposed to be, Kim and Kyle, JWoww, professional surfer Bethany Hamilton (she lost her arm in a shark attack) Alexandra Paul and David Chokachi from Baywatch (How old are they now?) Terrell Owens and Antonio Sabato Jr. It seems like David and Antonio are the two missing in the picture. If I am going to watch this, I’m going to need Antonio Sabato Jr.
I still can’t believe that Stars in Danger: The High Dive is an actual thing staring both Kim and Kyle Richards.
