paired each diver up with a junior diving champ to perform a synchronized dive!
Brandi is paired with junior diver Daria. Their dive is a hit with the judges and David Boudia rips off his shirt to reveal Brandi's score: 10.00! Steve Foley calls the dive "incredible" and gives her a 9.50.
Brandi's average score: 9.75
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's Dive:
Kareem will be diving with 12-year-old Michelle. Their extreme height difference made timing their dives perfectly a challenge. They both perform a back dive with a half twist, and Steve awards the dive a 7.00. David gives them a 7.50 despite Kareem's "spaghetti legs" on entry.
Kareem's average score: 7.25
Rory Bushfield's Dive:
Rory's junior diving partner is Jake, who selects an ambitious dive for them to try. Due to Rory's perforated ear drum, he can't actually practice the dive, so they perform a different dive. The judges are impressed with Rory and both give him 8.00s.
Rory's average score: 8.00
Drake Bell's Dive:
Drake feels intimidated after seeing 12-year-old Luca demonstrate their dive, a back one-and-a-half half-twister. He attempts a different dive in rehearsals and crashes face-first into the pool, getting a black eye. Drake and Luca's synchronization is spot-on, but his entry isn't perfect. Steve and David both award him 7.00s.
Drake's average score: 7.00
Nicole Eggert's Dive:
Nicole and her partner Sophie will dive off the springboard in reverse. Sophie, the youngest junior diver, proves to be a tough coach. Nicole jokes, "I come to the pool to get away from my kids telling me what to do!" Nicole struggled during training, but the judges love the dive. David gives her an 8.00, and Steve, who says he is totally blown away, gives her an 8.50. Host Joey Lawrence points out how rare it is to get a higher score from Steve than David!
Nicole's average score: 8.25
Kareem and Drake are in the bottom two after audience scores are tallied. Kareem dives first, straight off the 5-meter platform. Then Drake goes up to the 10-meter and holds a handstand before diving into the water. David compliments both Kareem and Drake before saving Drake. Steve lauds Kareem for his achievements diving and inspiring people, but he calls Drake's dive "the dive of [his] life." He also saves Drake, and Kareem goes home.
