'Splash' premiere: How did Katherine Webb and the other celebs dive?

On the heels of the "Dancing With the Stars" season 16 premiere, ABC debuted its new celebrity competition series on Tuesday night, "Splash."

So what is this new show? Think "Dancing With the Stars" plus a swimming pool. The show, which could easily be called "Diving With the Stars," features D-List and pseudo celebrities who are, well, diving into a pool. 

Based off a similar-- and highly successful-- show from the Netherlands, "Splash" is actually a bit more compelling than it sounds. 

For example, in the first episode Louie Anderson, Rory Bushfield and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar plummet into the water from some of the tallest diving boards out there. (And--you guessed it--they make a big "Splash.")

It seems this season's fan favorite may be newbie "star" Katherine Webb, the former Miss Alabama that Brent Musburger gushed over during the BCS game back in January. 

Webb showed she has some guts, volunteering to be the first celeb to try a jump of the 10 meter diving board. But how did she compare to the others?

The model was told to up her degree of difficulty next time and had some low scores. 

But hers weren't as low as Keshia Knight Pulliam (aka Rudy Huxtable from "The Cosby Show"). 

Next week Kendra Wilkinson, Drake Bell, Nicole Eggert, Ndamukong Suh, and Chuy Bravo are up.
