'Splash': Tony Hawk Takes A Daring Dive Off The 10-Meter Platform Aboard His Skateboard

"Splash" welcomed a special celebrity diver to its latest episode, and their surprise guest brought along a diving prop. Entering masked, Tony Hawk didn't reveal himself until he was on top of the 10-meter platform. Once there, he grabbed a skateboard and performed an unusual hybrid skate-dive that earned him high praise from the judges.

For the rest of the night, though, the judges were very stern with the Final Four, in all the right ways. They deducted as they should, even giving out the lowest scores yet for Brandi Chastain's disastrous first dive. The night was structured so that the person with the highest combined scores from the judges and the audience would automatically advance to next week's finale. The other three would compete head-to-head-to-head in a dive-off to see which two would move on.

Rory Bushfield did an impressive three-somersault dive from the 10-meter platform to earn his way into the finale. When it came time for the dive-off, Brandi again fell short. Drake Bell had a rought night as well, and was pretty angry -- with some biting comments seemingly directed toward Rory and his inability to enter the water headfirst due to a ruptured eardrum -- after his first dive. He redeemed himself enough with his second, but once again it was Nicole Eggert who proved both surprising and impressive with her save-me dive.

Next Tuesday night will see Rory squaring off against Drake and Nicole to see which will become the first "Splash" champion. Come back for it at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
