Katherine Webb preferred 'Dancing' over diving
Internet sensation confesses passion for dance, accepted 'secured spot'
Miss Alabama Katherine Webb has confessed her first choice for a reality TV appearance was "Dancing With the Stars" and not celebrity diving show "Splash."
The 23-year-old made headlines when she was spotted in the crowd by cameras during her boyfriend A.J. McCarron's appearance at the BCS National Championship Game earlier this month. Now, she's set to compete on ABC's new high-diving show, "Splash," in March. But if she had her choice, she would rather don heels and a spray tan, instead of a bathing suit.
She admitted to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, "If I were to do any show it would have been 'Dancing With the Star's just because I love dancing. I don't know the technicalities on that. But I know that I was on the list, I think, but I had a secured spot for celebrity diving so I went ahead with diving." Webb will go toe-to-toe with celebrities including "Girls Next Door" star Kendra Wilkinson, Keshia Knight Pulliam of "The Cosby Show" and comedian Louie Anderson when "Splash" premieres March 19.
the more plastic a woman is, the more men seem to love her. This chick is waaaaay overrated
Finally a made-celbrity that has some actual substance, intelligence and isn't a poster child for bad behavior. I'd certainly much rather see someone like this become a focal point in the media instead of the Lohans and Kardashian junk. I think Dancing would have been a much better business decision for her if she's looking to further a career in Media, but seeing someone like her getting the attention for a change is a breath of fresh air.
Beats serving awful bad food to obese slobs at a fast food chain ! Go girl, go get it !
Dance with Stars, Dive with Stars, just do what you gotta do and make the most of it!!!
There will always be some jerk ready to rag on you but who cares?? I think you are doing the hustle and making hay while the sun shines! ROCK on Princess Warrior, kick butts and take names....................
Katherine Webb became a "star" the minute the television cameras found her - regardless of the circumstances. She just hadn't been discovered until that moment. Dancing with the Stars lost out on what could've been some extra high ratings by not immediately going after Katherine Webb. I am very happy for Katherine Webb.
She may have been a nobody but that has changed!!! The media has made sure of that and there is not one of you that wouldn't jump at an opportunity if you could!!!! Roll Tide Roll !
Brent Mussberger took all kinds of flack for his comments about her during that bowl game her boyfriend was playing in. I'll bet if she had the opportunity to thank him she would those comments brought all kinds of offers her way and she's making the most of them I say good for her.
Being "girlfriend of the quarterback" may have been what got her an instant "look", but her looks and the fact that she IS Miss Alabama has kept her in the spotlight beyond the obligatory 3 second camera shot during the game.
@victury.. haters? where?

grow up and get a life. TV is fake. learn about real life and NOT fake life.
