Nicole's average score: 8.50
Rory Bushfield does a dive with a high degree of difficulty and earns a 9.50 from David and a 9.00 from Steve.
Rory's average score: 9.25
Drake Bell dives third. His dive earns a 7.00 from Steve and a 7.00 from David.

With the top two scores, Rory and Nicole advance to the final round. Nicole dives first, and she wants to win! She attempts a dive she's never done before, a double backflip. Unfortunately she hits the water on her back. After a few tense minutes, paramedics determine she is going to be OK.
Then it's time for Rory's final dive of the season. He does a front two-and-a-half and goes in headfirst, which David calls "the dive of his life." Both Steve and David reveal they would have named Rory the winner, but it's not up to them!
The audience vote determines the Splash champion...and they choose Rory too! Rory Bushfield is named the first ever Splash champion.
