"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.
Similar to "Dancing with the Stars", a professional diving instructor will give each celebrity several weeks of training prior to the start of the competition.
"Celebrity Diving" will feature a three-person judging panel. While the third member of the panel has yet to be revealed, two of the judges will be legendary diver and four-time Olympic gold medallist Greg Louganis, and David Boudia, who won the gold medal for diving at the 2012 London Olympic Games.

The top two will be picked by the judges and will compete in a champion dive-off, but the first ever U.S. winner of the "Splash" trophy will be chosen by the live studio audience only! All of the previously eliminated celebrity divers will be back at the pool for a final dive
