After a few contestants experienced injuries during the filming of ABC's diving show, Splash, we're actually kind of happy that it has come to an end! Sheesh!

Last night, the three finalists, Rory Bushfield, Drake Bell and Nicole Eggert dove one last time, and although they all did a spectacular job, only one came out winning.

So who shined and who flopped???

Unfortunately, Bell was eliminated in the first round, which left Bushfield and Eggert in the running for the remainder of the episode.

But after the Baywatch hottie tried a double back flip off the seven-meter platform, she ended up landing on her back, and expressed that she hurt herself, which we were already aware of. (CLICK HERE to see Nicole's back injury.)

Rory was then obviously the only diver left, and even though he experienced a ruptured eardrum during training earlier in the season, he was able to show off his skills with a dive that featured two and a half front flips and a smooth head first entrance into the water.

Once everything was all said and done, the professional skier became the champion of Splash and dedicated his win to his late wife, Sarah Burke, who died after experiencing a ski accident last January.

He said:

"I think I'm just inspired by my wife Sarah, looking down."

Awww!!

Congrats, Rory!!!
