Splash


Splash (Courtesy Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)


Splash is an American reality competition series on ABC. It premiered on March 19, 2013. Steve Foley and David Boudia are judges while Greg Louganis mentored the competitors.

Production history

The series was first mentioned on October 5, 2012, when it was announced that ABC ordered what was called Celebrity Splash straight to series. Based on the Dutch series of the same name, it has celebrities perform dives from extreme heights and each week the challenges increase in difficulty.

Eight out of ten of the cast were revealed on January 25, 2013, which is also when the series changed its name to its current title of Splash. The two unrevealed cast members were revealed on February 4, 2013. The final two to be revealed were Nicole Eggert and Rory Bushfield. The hosts for season one have been Joey Lawrence and Charissa Thompson.

Season 1 was filmed at the Riverside Aquatics Complex on the campus of Riverside City College.

The contestants each had humorous personalized walkout songs, written by supervising producer Rick Austin with music by jingle-writing company Jingle Punks. Producers decided to write the songs because it would've been too expensive to clear real hit songs. In an interview with TV Guide, Austin said that the songs are supposed to be "intentionally bad," but "fun."
