Kendra Wilkinson Too Scared To Dive On 'Splash' (VIDEO)

This week's eliminated contestant on "Splash" didn't get cut from the competition for failing to impress the judges. It was the end of the road for Kendra Wilkinson because she failed to dive. Her fear of heights got the best of her.

The theme was paired diving, and Kendra was paired with Rory Bushfield. He was a fearless athlete, while she suffered from a crippling fear of heights. It was a monumental achievement last week when she took inspiration from her son and actually jumped off the diving board. This week, host Joey Lawrence had to rush up the stairs as she started heading down.

"I wish I could do it for everybody," Kendra said. "I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry everybody."

She went a little deeper into what she was going through with E!Online. She said, "I start spinning, I start wanting to throw up, I'm shaking, my fingers wiggle -- It's like a real thing, when my fingers wiggle. That's, like, a truth."

Kendra said it was the first thing she'd ever quit in her life. Doing so was a likely saving grace for the team of Louie Anderson and Kareem Abdul Jabbar, who were at the bottom of the pack in points.

The seven remaining contestants live to dive again on "Splash," Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
