Much of the talk about Splash, ABC’s celebrity diving show, has centered on Katherine Webb. The busty Alabama beauty made famous by Brent Musburger. But the real star of the show has been Louie Anderson—a rotund has-been comedian who nearly drowned when he couldn’t get out of the pool.
Sadly, big Louie was eliminated during last night’s competition after attempting a flip. A flip that started with him laying on the platform. I won’t lie, the whole thing’s pretty emotional.
The dive brought tears to competitors eyes, most notably Katherine Webb.
We can’t all step up to a diving board and simply fall off. Props to Louie. The man’s a hero.
