The Taiwanese singer-actor is competing in the quarterfinals of Jiangsu TV’s High Dive: Stars in Danger program
After two weeks of training, Vanness Wu took part in the filming of Jiangsu TV’s High Dive: Stars in Danger program on Sunday night, raking in NT$1.2 million (approximately S$50,000) for the appearance.
The Taiwanese singer-actor, who has no prior diving experience, managed to execute the three-metre springboard dive and clinch the top spot in the preliminary round. Vanness completed the dive with a 540–degree midair twist, successfully qualifying for the quarterfinals with an average score of 69 (out of 71).
Despite his outstanding performance, Vanness admitted that he was very nervous, “I joined the program because I thought it would be fun.”
“But when it comes to the real competition, I felt like it wasn’t so fun anymore because of all the pressure. I kept praying for strength before the dive.”
According to media reports, the top three celebrities who make it to the finals will receive cash prizes worth at least NT$10 million (S$410,000).
