One team has already fallen on Season 31 of “The Amazing Race” and the remaining 10 will face off with some new twists in the ultimate reality star showdown and quest for $1 million. With “Big Brother,” “Survivor” and “Amazing Race” teams all still in it with the hope of being named champs, things are definitely going to continue getting competitive and fierce.

Spoiler Alert: The ending of Season 31, Episode 1 “You’re In Our Race Now” Is Discussed Below

“Amazing Race” Season 20 runners-up Art Velez and JJ Carroll were eliminated from the first episode of the season after a tough leg that saw Art face major leg cramps that kept him from completing the second Roadblock. That forced the two to take a four-hour penalty, and as a result, they came in last and saw their triumphant return (they previously placed second during the show’s 20th season), come to an early end.

With penalties, tricks and surprises over just how difficult and demanding the race can be already happening in the first episode, things will only get more challenging and competitive as the Race continues, especially with twists suited towards “Big Brother” and “Survivor” alumni also being thrown into the mix. With that coming, what will happen as teams race to their next destination in Luang Prabang, Laos? Here’s our ranking for where we think the teams will fall by the time the next leg comes to an end.

Leo Temory And Jamal Zadran

Not only did the Afghanimals come in first on Leg One, getting redemption for their prior elimination in Tokyo during Season 23, but they proved the other teams right that they would once again stop at nothing if it gave them a chance to win. After pretending they hadn’t found the location for their clue pick-up to keep the other teams off their backs, they managed to get in front and stay there all leg—these two truly are in it to win it this time around and won’t be going anywhere any time soon.

Colin Guinn And Christie Woods

Their more Zen approach to life these days so far seems to be helping Colin and Christie when it comes to their performance. Though they came in second this leg, but were mainly right behind Leo and Jamal the whole time, and likely only stayed behind because of the trick the other two played on other teams at Shibuya Crossing. They can, and likely will, remain as a strong team.

After a slow start in California, Tyler and Korey continued to prove they shouldn’t be underestimated. Not only was Tyler able to quickly complete his Roadblock, but Korey also made quick work of his as well. Other teams have already stated that they are a team to watch, and they seemed to be proving that they are in fact worth keeping an eye on.

Rachel Reilly And Elissa Slater

So far, Rachel hasn’t had one of her emotional moments that puts her and Elissa at risk, so for now, the two are likely to stick around in the competition for a little while longer.

Becca Droz And Floyd Pierce

Team Fun closed out the front half of the pack with their fifth-place finish, and while that’s not necessarily the best place to be, the two aren’t strangers to being near the middle to the pack and then suddenly pulling into the front. Chances are they will quickly do that once again.

Nicole Franzel And Victor Arroyo

Of the non- "Amazing Race” teams, these two had the best overall performance level. The one moment that really kept them from getting further ahead was Victor’s struggle at the Roadblock, which didn’t really even say something about their skills since the task was more about luck than anything else. They seem like underdogs who will surprise everyone by suddenly pulling to the front later on.

Chris Hammons And Bret LaBelle

The “Survivor” alums did the best of their group, and while they did fall towards the bottom of the pack overall, they seem like the type who will start performing better once they have adapted to the way “Race” works. With one leg under their belts now, they might just climb up in the rankings and should be around a little more.

Janelle Pierzina And Britney Haynes

Initially, among the front-runners, Janelle and Britney suffered after a mishap with directions. Their lead quickly plummeted, and instead of still being in second or third place, they fell to the bottom, coming in 8th. They may still stick around for a few more legs, but if they continue to struggle with navigation, they won’t be around very long.

Corinne Kaplan And Eliza Orlins

The so-called “Villains” quickly ate their own words about the other teams after they struggled to find the clue at Shibuya Crossing, which quickly plummeted them down the leaderboard. The only reason they may still be in the race is because of Art and JJ’s penalty and the fact that Rupert and Laura also faced a major struggle. The will need to think much more quickly if they want to stay in the Race longer, but they should still be safe during the next leg.

Rupert And Laura Boneham

Sadly, Rupert’s confidence that he and Laura can and will win doesn’t seem like it will be enough to keep them in the race any longer. While they are performing well at actual tasks, their navigation skills in foreign countries have them overwhelmed, and it seems likely that will continue posing a challenge for them. They seem like the next team to definitely be saying goodbye to “TAR.”

“The Amazing Race” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EDT on CBS.
