*Tonight, Terrell Owens will sink to new lows – just literally, of course.
The former NFL receiver is among the celebrities competing in Fox’s two-hour special “Stars in Danger: The High Dive,” which airs tonight from 8 to 10. [Scroll down to watch a promo.]
“Jersey Shore’s” JWOWW, shark attack survivor and surfer Bethany Hamilton, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” sisters Kim and Kyle Richards, “Baywatch” alums David Chokachi and Alexandra Paul, and actor/model Antonio Sabato Jr. will compete against T.O. in various Olympic-style dives, including solo high diving and synchronized diving.
The celebs were given crash courses in the sport before having to compete. When we caught up with Owens to chat about his new endeavor, he was still shell shocked.
“I’m so mentally fried right now with just the techniques of diving – the arm swinging motions, just the whole mental aspect of it,” he told EURweb. “I think a lot of people don’t realize, a lot of gymnastics goes into diving. After the first couple of days, I honestly have a whole newfound respect for the sport itself.”
Below, T.O. tells us if he has an end-zone inspired celebration dance prepared for viewers if he nails a dive.
