"Splash" sure is making a splash. Just weeks after Kendra Wilkinson quit the ABC diving competition due to her fear of heights, Katherine Webb is the second celeb to quit -- but not by choice!

During the episode, Webb, who modeled in the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, that she was forced to exit due to injury. "I went to the doctor and, unfortunately, he told me I'm out for the competition," she said.

Because she had to leave the series, "Splash" brought back a recently eliminated contestant to dive: Louie Anderson!

VIDEO: Webb didn't blame Wilkinson for quitting the show!

Of returning to "Splash," Anderson tweeted, "Ive really gotten to know Katherine Webb over the weeks we practiced together. She put all that she could into this, and she wanted to go on but she was truly hurt and in pain. And couldn't!"

Unfortunately, his return to the pool was short-lived as he opted not to dive against Brandi Chastain after they landed in the bottom two.

"I know I have very little chance of winning this competition," Anderson said. "And I am going home, and I am going to defer to Brandi because she has a chance to win this competition."
