Katherine Webb will apparently be going from modeling swimsuits to diving in them.
The model and reigning Miss Alabama USA will be one of the contestants to compete on ABC's upcoming Celebrity Diving reality competition series, TMZ reported.
In addition to Webb, practice photos obtained by TMZ show that some of the other celebrities competing on Celebrity Diving will be Kendra on Top star Kendra Wilkinson, Nickelodeon star Drake Bell, Detroit Lions star Ndamukong Suh, retired NBA basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, actress Nicole Eggert, comedian Louie Anderson, E!'s Chuy Bravo, and actress Keshia Knight Pulliam.
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.
ABC announced last month Celebrity Diving will premiere Tuesday, March 19 at 8PM ET/PT. The network had revealed the new series' pickup in early October.
Celebrity Diving 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.
