Miss Alabama Katherine Webb, the woman whose stunning looks inspired gushing compliments from Brent Musburger at the BCS Championship Game, is capitalizing on her sudden (and accidental) fame. Webb has signed on to compete in a new reality series called (wait for it) "Celebrity Diving."

This won't be the first time Webb donned a bikini for cameras. While competing for the title of Miss USA, Webb donned a turquoise two-piece. Webb finished the competition in the top ten, but Miss Rhode Island Olivia Culpo won the crown.

TMZ broke the news about "Celebrity Diving." The show, which will air on ABC, will feature other celebrities in quotation marks, including Nicole Eggert ("Charles in Charge," "Baywatch"), Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson, and former Cosby kid Keshia Knight Pulliam.

But it isn't all women in bikinis. The competition will also include NBA great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, NFL player Ndamukong Suh, and (our pick for most likely to make a joke about splash size), comedian Louie Anderson. Rounding out the cast are actor/musician Drake Bell and E! TV correspondent Chuy.

Webb is poised for a busy 2013. She will be covering the Super Bowl for "Inside Edition." There is also some speculation that she may appear in next month's Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Webb fired off a tweet saying, "It's official... shooting with Sports Illustrated!" She then deleted the post, but not before the news went viral.
