Splash's Rory Bushfield: I Came in with an Advantage

Splash crowned its first winner Tuesday and Rory Bushfield walked away with the Crystal Splash trophy (yes, that's what it's called). The extreme freestyle skier and his insane acrobatics, not to mention ruptured eardrum, emphatically beat out Drake Bell and runner-up Nicole Eggert , who suffered a nasty and literal backflop into the water on her final dive. "It was up to the fans [to vote for the winner], so you never know what's going to happen," Bushfield tells "But Nicole was pretty badass. She went for that double and almost had it." See whate else Bushfield, had to say about his victory, if Bell was really calling him out and doing the show for his late wife , pioneering freestyle skier Sarah Burke.

SPOILER ALERT: 'Splash' Season 1 winner revealed!

Celebrity diving series "Splash" came to a close on Tuesday night, with extreme skier Rory Bushfield taking home the grand prize. Bushfield struggled in the beginning of the show, since as a skier, he's been taught never to land on his head -- an important skill when one is going into a pool head-first. Ultimately, he overcame his physical obstacles, including a painful ruptured eardrum. He was driven by the memory of his wife, freestyle skier Sarah Burke, who died last January after a crash in Park City, Utah. "Sarah was my dream girl before she knew who I was," he said on the show. "A lot of the craziest things I ever did were just kind of to impress Sarah." While Bushfield was the winner, ABC was not.
