It’s a season set to pit former “Amazing Race” competitors against those who made a name for themselves on fellow CBS shows “Big Brother” and “Survivor,” but it seems that those who have previously competed on the race around the world may have had a huge advantage when it comes to the upcoming 31st season of the show.

Spoiler Alert: Season 31 spoilers for “The Amazing Race” are discussed below

It was previously revealed that the cast for the new season would include the following teams:

  • “Amazing Race”: Art Valez and JJ Carrell (Season 20), Becca Droz and Floyd Pierce (Season 29), Colin Guinn and Christie Woods (Season 5), Leo Temory and Jamal Zadran (Seasons 23 and 24) Tyler Oakley and Korey Kuhl (Season 28)
  • “Big Brother”: Britney Godwin (Seasons 12 and 14) and Janelle Pierzina (Seasons 6, 7 and 14), Nicole Franzel and Victor Arroyo (Season 18), Rachel Reilly Villegas (Season 12 and 13) and Elissa Slater (Season 15)
  • “Survivor”: Chris Hamons and Bret LaBelle (Season 33), Eliza Orlins (Seasons 9 and 16) and Corinne Kaplan (Seasons 17 and 26), Rupert (Seasons 7, 8, 20 and 27) and Laura Boneham (Season 27)

However, despite some fierce competitors from “Survivor” and “Big Brother” being featured on the season, including Rachel Reilly Villegas, who also competed on “Amazing Race” twice, it appears teams from the franchise will be dominant, with all three teams competing in the final leg solely being from “TAR.”

According to the Detroit Free Press, the final leg of the race will send teams to the Michigan city, and a task that was filmed on Tuesday, July 3, included the teams rappelling down the Guardian Building, visiting the “Spirit of Detroit” Statue, Jack White’s Third Man Records, the Heidelberg Project and Hart Plaza.

The publication reported that both Tyler Oakley and Jamal Zadran were seen during the filming, which would confirm that the two teams had both made it to the final leg. Tyler and Korey had originally placed third in their first appearance on the show, but this would be the first appearance in the final leg for Jamal and his cousin, Leo Temory, who placed fourth in each of their prior appearances on the show.

However, it appeared that a win was not destined for the self-proclaimed “Afghanimals” in Season 31 either, as the Free Press reported that Jamal was left waiting at the Guardian Building for Leo for two hours after the other teams had already left the challenge there.

As for the third team in the final leg, Reality Fan Forum, which reports on the status of the teams as they compete, believes that it is Colin and Christie, who placed second during their first run on the show in Season 5.

No premiere date has been announced for Season 31 of “The Amazing Race.”
