The reality all-star Race is almost upon us. Season 31 of The Amazing Race premieres April 17 at 9 p.m. on CBS, but you don’t have to wait until then to get your first taste. That’s because we’ve got the exclusive first few minutes for you right here and right now.

Watch as host Phil Keoghan welcomes us to “The first ever showdown between contestants from Survivor, Big Brother, and The Amazing Race.” Watch as Rupert from Survivor starts a little smack talk as to which show is actually the hardest. Watch as Tyler Oakley gives Phil a little lip. Watch as the Zingbot shows up and sasses the entire cast. (Okay, that last one’s not technically true, but how much do we wish it was?)

Not only do we get to see the contestants embark on their first task (digging into an octopus-shaped sand structure for their destination clue), but Phil’s trademark eyebrow-arch is in full effect! Watch it all go down above and then check out the rest of the premiere April 17 on CBS.
