"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"
