The Olympic medal-winning diver took the plunge with former RuPaul’s Drag Race star, Willam.
Tom Daley has a history of training celebrities; he taught several stars how to dive on his show Splash on ITV. But, this is the first time he dove with a drag queen in full drag. Recently, Daley and drag superstar Willam went for a dip together. In videos posted to their YouTube channels, the Olympian introduced Willam to the intimidating 10-meter diving board.

In the video, Willam sports an adorable floral swim cap, latex swimsuit and glorious blonde wig attachments for her first dive. From the moment she hits the surface, its evident that false eyelashes and hair extensions don’t like water. As Daley points out, you can reach a speed of 35 miles per hour from the 10-meter board. Apparently, that’s enough velocity to do some serious damage to a drag queen.
Although Willam never actually dives from the 10-meter board, her leaps are elegant nevertheless.
