" It's very difficult but they are talented in all aspects, put it together, hats off to them" says Olympic Diver Troy Dumais
Stars In Danger features nine familiar faces. Everyone from a super model, to reality stars and a football pro are stepping out of their comfort zone and into deep water!
"Black people and water don't mix! It was a struggle" laughs Professional Athlete Terrell Owens.
A reality diving show has never been done in the US, but the shows producers say it's a huge hit in other countries, "Our show has been done in Germany since 2004 kicking ourselves why didn't do this before"
The cast says they quickly realized a lot more goes into the sport than what we see on the Olympics.
"None of us realized what we got into until a week in. Had a lot of hot tub talk like what are we doing here" says Owens.
Before they walk the plank and dive, or should I say belly flop in, they must train. It's a crash course in diving techniques overseen by the best.
"We crammed in 20 years of diving in like 2 weeks" says Owens.
"We only had 9 days to train and had to learn 3 dives to perform competitive" says supermodel Antonio Sabato JR.
But with all the pain and bruising comes some life lessons as well!
"They got to see ups and downs but also got to see that it is a family sport. No matter who won, who lost, who missed, who hit - everyone was excited" says Dumais.

Former Dyer County constable sentenced to prison
May 23, 2013 12:50 GMT
DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) -- Former Dyer County Constable Derick Shane Hundley has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison.
The State Gazette (http://bit.ly/14UHydd ) reported Hundley was sentenced Monday after earlier entering a guilty plea to enticement of a minor through electronic means. The government dropped a child pornography count.
Prosecutors said Hundley, who is 30, used a cellphone to try to entice a minor female to have sex with him. Police arrested Hundley last July and found an external hard drive that contained numerous images of minors involved in sex. He resigned from the constable post he had won in 2010 after his arrest.
