Katherine Webb: I wanted to do 'Dancing with the Stars' over 'Splash' celebrity diving


By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 01/31/2013 

Katherine Webb has admitted although she's competing on the debut season of Splash, ABC's new celebrity diving competition, it wasn't her first choice.

"If I were to do any show it would have been Dancing With the Stars just because I love dancing," Webb told Ryan Seacrest on his Tuesday radio show, according to E! News.

"I don't know the technicalities on that, but I know that I was on the list I think, but I had a secured spot for celebrity diving so I went ahead with diving."

Webb reportedly said the reality diving competition, which ABC picked up in early October and will premiere on Tuesday, March 19 at 8PM ET, was a unique opportunity she felt she needed to take advantage of at the time.  

"It's something I never imagined myself doing and at the same time, you know, it's such like out of the norm idea that people will have to watch it," she told Seacrest.

The network had announced last week the model and reigning Miss Alabama USA will be appearing on Splash.  

Webb recently gained notoriety when ESPN announcer Brent Musburger made controversial comments about her good looks during the sport network's broadcast of the BCS National Championship game. She was attending the college football game because she recently began dating A.J. McCarron, who is the starting quarterback for the University of Alabama -- the rival of Webb's own school, Auburn University.

According to E! News, Webb said she's envisioning her life with McCarron because strong feelings have already developed between the pair.

"It's kind of funny because I've dated in L.A. and I've kind of like seen how Hollywood works, but when you find yourself with someone that you really can see yourself with, like, you know it," she told the American Idol host.

"I knew in the first two weeks that we were going to be together for a long time. Love kind of takes over and you start talking about the future... so yeah, [marriage] is definitely something that I want."

Splash will feature celebrities competing in a diving competition in front of a live audience. Each week, stars will perform dives -- such as backflips and somersaults -- from various heights that will increase in difficulty as the season progresses in the hopes of impressing a panel of judges and home viewers.

Dancing with the Stars' sixteenth season will premiere on March 18 on ABC.
