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.
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.
