A spokesperson for the show tells Access Hollywood that the former "Baywatch" beauty was injured after a bad landing during a "Splash" taping earlier this week.

Nicole's injury adds to the long list of health scares on the show so far.

Katherine Webb left "Splash" this week due to a back injury, while Kendra Wilkinson quit due to her fear of heights.

Louie Anderson bruised his ribs during practice in March and professional skier Rory Bushfield suffered a ruptured eardrum while practicing a flip.

Additionally, "Chelsea Lately" sidekick Chuy Bravo was forced to bow out before "Splash" began airing after fracturing his heel.

"Splash" airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC.
