Episode Recap – Splash – Brandi Chastain flops, booted from show

Posted by in Blog

Skateboard legend Tony Hawk kicks things off for the evening, taking a 10-meter plunge to kick off the evening on Splash.

It’s probably the most interesting this show has ever been.

As for the rest of the night, let’s get to it.

We have four celebrities left of the evening: Drake Bell, Rory Bushfield, Brandi Chastain and Nicole Eggert all competing for a spot in the finale.

The celebs picked the board they wanted to dive from, and then they were assigned a dive by Dive Master and coach Greg Louganis.

Drake Bell
Board: 7-meter
Dive: Inward dive
Score: 6.00, 5.50 = 5.75

Nicole Eggert
Board: 5-meter
Dive: Front-flip-something-whatever
Score: 7.50, 7.00 = 7.25
* Nicole was dressed as Wonder Woman.

Brandi Chastain
Board: 3-meter spring board
Dive: Back one-and-a-half half-twist
Score: 3.50, 3.00 = 3.25
* Brandi was dressed as a tiger. Freaky costume. Eww. Because her feet landed in the water before her hand in this dive, she did not complete the dive. Technically, she should get zero.

Rory Bushfield
Board: 10-meter
Dive: Back triple-flip
Score: 8.50, 9.00 = 8.75

Based on these scores, Rory Bushfield is in first place. Factoring in the mystery audience scores, Rory is safe in this week’s competition. He’s going to the first Splash finals.

Now, Drake, Nicole and Brandi compete in the first three-way dive off.

Brandi Chastain
Board: 7-meter

Nicole Eggert
Board: 3-meter spring board

Drake Bell
Board: 10-meter

The judges get to pick who they want to save in the finals. David picks Drake and Steve picks Nicole.

Brandi, your name was the most interesting curve ball to throw in this competition. I guess it was good to see you come in to replace Chuy, though if he heals and wishes to return, I’d like to see the little man make it back.

Adios, Brandi Chastain.

Next week, we’ll see Drake, Rory and Nicole in the finale. Only one will be dive champion.
