Katherine Webb's star keeps rising.

Miss Alabama USA and the girlfriend of Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, famously ogled on national television by ESPN announcer Brent Musburger during the BCS Championship game, is making the most of her 15 minutes of fame by signing on to participate in a reality television show on ABC.

According to TMZ, the 23-year-old will compete on Celebrity Diving, a show that looks like Dancing With the Stars, but with competitive diving.

Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis will judge (he's one of the bigger names involved, so the show is stretching the definition of 'celebrity' a bit) and the cast was revealed when TMZ uncovered a photo of Webb on set with costars Ndamukong Suh of the Detroit Lions, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, former Baywatch girl Nicole Eggert, Cosby Show actor Keshia Knight-Pulliam, and former Playboy Playmate Kendra Wilkinson.

It looked at first like Webb would be keeping a low profile, canceling interviews fearing her new-found fame would disrupt her relationship with McCarron, who was reportedly upset that her moment in the spotlight would was overshadowing his team's big victory over Notre Dame.

Webb has also signed on to cover the Super Bowl on Feb. 3 for Inside Edition.
