'Splash': Chuy Bravo Replaced With Brandi Chastain After Injury On ABC Diving Show

Fan's of "Chelsea Lately's" Chuy Bravo won't see the Chelsea Handler's sidekick making the high dive on ABC's "Splash" after all. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bravo has been replaced with soccer star Brandi Chastain after fracturing his heel during practice. He'll reportedly still be a part of the season in some capacity, however.

The reality competition, premiering March 19 at 8 p.m. ET, sees 10 celebrity contestants training under coaches David Boudia and Greg Louganis to complete increasingly difficult high dives, including twists, flip dives and backflips midair.

Bravo isn't the only contestant who suffered difficulties while training -- comedian Louie Anderson reportedly almost drowned during practice, becoming exhausted after numerous dives and having difficulty pulling himself out of the water. He was assisted by fellow contestant Ndamukong Suh and Louganis.

Fox recently attempted their own celebrity diving special, "Stars In Danger: The High Dive," which debuted to a paltry 3.4 million viewers.

For more on Bravo and Chastain, head over to THR.

"Splash" premieres Tuesday, March 19 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
