LMAO. I literally did a double (and then a triple) take when I read this headline on Complex. Totally thought my eyes were deceiving me. But it wasn’t so. A celebrity diving competition show… featuring… JWOWW?! I… cannot! As in, I cannot believe this is real. Which is why it falls under today’s That-Ish-Cray Of The Day. Click inside to learn more about a forthcoming two-hour special brought to you by the good folks at the Fox network.
Complex has the ridiculousness:
Undoubtedly looking to compete with the celebrity diving competition series that ABC ordered in October, Fox is moving forward with a two-hour special titled Stars in Danger: High-Dive, and according to Deadline has just announced their cast and premiere date. It will air on January 9th, and feature Jersey Shore star Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members Kyle and Kim Richards, professional surfer Bethany Hamilton, actress and endurance athlete Alexandra Paul, Baywatch star David Chokachi, soap star Antonio Sabato Jr., and former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens.
The special is the same concept as ABC’s series, only compressed into two hours rather than a whole season – celebrities will train prior to the event, and then compete in a “series of Olympic-style dives, including solo high diving and synchronized diving, from a variety of heights.” Like Dancing With the Stars, only with diving!
This just sounds all kinds of dangerous and… well, wack. LMAO! Jwoww? And her girls? High diving?! And then the sisters from Beverly Hills… plus T.O.?! C’mon now. This mixture just cannot be healthy for viewers and participants alike. And I feel like this is one of those shows I simply won’t be able to watch (not even once), just based on principle. I mean, they legit couldn’t come up with a slightly better idea?! OMG.
Okay, time to fess up. Who’s remotely interested in watching Stars in Danger: High-Dive?
