'Splash': Kendra Wilkinson Faces Her Fear, Finds Motivation In The Words Of Her Son

It was Week 2 on "Splash," and that meant the second batch of divers had to face the water. Unfortunately for Chuy Bravo, though, his time on the show came to an end even before he got a chance to dive due to a random injury. That opened the door for soccer star Brandi Chastain to step in. She joined Drake Bell, Nicole Eggert, Ndamukong Suh and Kenrdra Wilkinson.

Both Kendra and Nicole had to face their fears -- Nicole struggled with body issues while Kendra had a fear of heights. Or did she? Coach Greg Louganis didn't seem to think it was real, or perhaps he was just trying to motivate her. Either way, the two clashed through her entire video package.

But Kendra stuck with it and got some extra motivation from her son moments before she took to the air. Afterward, she said, "I just heard that ‘I love you’ from my son before I went in. It was the most powerful moment in my life."

Kendra talked about the challenges of diving with the Examiner. "It's not only high up but it takes full body control to get your body to do the twists and all that. Also if you hit the water wrong you could really get hurt so it's a lot different than swimming," she said.

For conquering their fears, Kendra and Nicole were the first two celebs dubbed safe, followed shortly by Drake. In the dive-off, it was Brandi who came out victorious over Ndamukong Suh.

It's paired diving next week on "Splash," Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
