A Celebrity Diving Reality TV Show – Would You Watch It?


Well the Dutch have done it again and made a mega hit reality TV show that everyone wants to get their hands on.

This time it is a celebrity diving reality TV show called Celebrity Splash  and it is pulling in sky high ratings. The Dutch were behind the mega hits of Big Brother and The Voice.

Who would ever think it would work? However after looking at the screen reel above it did look amusing. Also there is opportunity to see some smoking hot bodies on prime time TV.

It is rumoured that Channel Seven may have bought the rights for the show here. If this is true it could mean Dancing With The Stars will not go ahead next year.

The Daily Telegraph writes:

In what is described as television’s first diving reality competition show, Celebrity Splash will see ‘stars’ perform dives from dizzying heights, including the 10m platform.

In the show, which according to Deadline.com has also been picked up in the US by ABC, the dives will increase in difficulty each week and contestants will attempt backflips, somersaults and other gymnastic feats. Australia’s former Olympic champion, Matthew Mitcham, is believed to be in talks for a mentoring role.Celebrity Splash is a runaway smash in The Netherlands, the country that spawned Big Brother and The Voice. It’s understood the show averaged a 26.5 per cent prime-time market share after launching in August – fresh off the back of the London Olympics.

While the three major Aussie commercial networks are yet to unveil their 2013 program schedules (all have program launches scheduled in coming weeks), rumours are rife that Seven has nabbed the rights to the show.
The next question is who will be in it. It will be the usual mix of reality TV stars, soapie  actors, and former sports people. Tony Abbott if he was retired would have been a no brainer as he loves prancing around in his Speedos. Seriously Charlie Delaney former high five member and now DJ announcer would be great as would some people with dancing background like Mike Snell or Davin from I Will Survive.
A great casting coup would be Matt Lee former So You Think You Can Dance Australia judge who would have the athletic ability to do a double pike somersault with a twist.
Who would you like to see on the show?

In the same Daily Telegraph story they also say they hear rumours Kenny star and ex-Top Gear presenter Shane Jacobson will host a new cooking show on Channel 9. Didn’t know he could cook.

RR, I’d like to see Kyle Sandilands, Alan Jones and Charlotte Dawson all take another dive. :-)

Seriously though, it sounds great and I would love to see it replace DWTS, which has definitely run it’s course.

Speaking of Tony Abbott….I didn’t know he was gay until I saw that bloke defending him the other day.Tony gets women. Yeah,right.

Ask his wife bdd, not only is she loyal, but she’s apparently an authority on Tony – who would have thought!

Oh, that was his wife, Georgie? I thought it was a bloke .. Or are you trolling me again?

What’s next? A character reference from his mother?

I’d prefer Celebrity ‘It’s a Knockout’:-

Lmao bdd – I missed your sarcasm and blundered in. I thought I saw a moustache the other day, but still the penny didn’t drop.

CB that is brilliant!

What about Deni Hines, all the Masterchef judges and especially for BDD, Margie and Julie Goodwin, not to mention Ajay for CB!

Well ,provided it’s not a drought year and there’s plenty of water to keep filling the pool, fat celebrities would be a hoot. If Jowl$y could be torn away from the catering canteen long enough to compete, I’d watch.

9 Culinary Boner { 10.08.12 at 12:09 pm }

Ajay would assuredly make a splash.

That concept brings some outsized visions to mind, so Celebrity Splash might be a little of an understatement. Maybe Celebrity Tsunami would be better.

Big Blubber? Ma$terchaffe? XL Factor? Drowning With The Stars?

We’re on a roll (of fat) ,Georgie.

Hahaha! Your comments really make my day, bdd! :)

Very funny. But serious Kerrie-Anne now contracted to SEVEN must be involved in it somehow. Maybe to host but personally I would love to see her up on that springboard.
