Miss Alabama USA 2012 Katherine Webb is the latest contestant diving out of ABC’s “Splash.”

Webb, 23, quit the celebrity diving contest this week due to injury.

“I went to the doctor, and unfortunately, he told me I’m out of the competition,” the beauty queen said during Tuesday’s episode.

“Thank you guys for all the support! Means so much. Love you guys,” Webb later Tweeted.

Webb’s sudden exit meant another celebrity could get back in the pool, and she was replaced by previously eliminated contestant Louie Anderson. But in a twist of fate (or something), the comedian also ended up bowing out of the contest when he faced soccer star Brandi Chastain in a dive off between the bottom two and opted not to take the plunge.

“I know I have very little chance of winning this competition,” Louie said at the end of the episode. “And I am going home, and I am going to defer to Brandi because she has a chance to win this competition.”

Previously, reality TV star Kendra Wilkinson withdrew from the show due to her fear of heights, and Chelsea Handler’s late-night sidekick Chuy Bravo was forced to bail out of the competition after breaking his foot during training.

“Splash” airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC.
