The Daily News describes Nicole Eggert’s experience at the reality-diving competition show Splash, “less like splash and more like splat.” It’s because the former Baywatch star did a huge back-flip that flop into the pool, a week before Tuesday night's dive-offs.
The former Baywatch star was filming the finale for the ABC diving show and while attempting to do back flips, she flopped into the pool the wrong way causing her to need medical attention because she was practically bruise and battered from the injuries.

Nicole Eggert’s injuries were captured by gossip-blog site TMZ.
According to the Daily News, the 41-year-old was checked for kidney damage and although the injuries she suffered looked very painful, she assured her fans via Twitter that she’s doing all right during the time of the incident.
She tweeted a few days after what happened, "I am not in the hospital, nor was I in a diving accident. Just have swelling and bruising on my back and kidneys."
Nicole Eggert isn’t the only person on the show Splash that took a dive for the worst while filming.
Katherine Webb, the Daily News reported, was forced to leave due to doctors orders after a back injury and Chelsea Lately’s Chuy Bravo had to exit after fracturing his heel.
Another Splash star, Kendra Wilkinson quit due to her fear of heights and Rory Bushfield ruptured his eardrum, although decided to stay on the show.
Nicole Eggert was sporting a slimmer physique since participating in the competition and was praised by judges for the visible progress in her dives.
She’s one of the final four divers who competed at the show Tuesday night.
