Kendra Wilkinson flopped on Tuesday’s episode of “Splash,” and it had nothing to do with the water.

The reality star refused to dive from the 23-foot-high platform on the show, citing her fear of heights, which eliminated her from the competition. She and partner Rory Bushfield had been scheduled to do a partner dive that would have had Bushfield holding Wilkinson while they flipped.

“I’m so sorry everybody,” she said of the decision. “This is the first time in my life I’ve quit something… This will haunt me for the rest of my life.”

Her fear likely saved fellow contender Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who held the lowest score of the evening.
