Dancing With the Stars: Athletes kicked off on Monday, April 30, and already, the race for the Mirrorball trophy is a close one. With its cast of both current and former Olympians, pro ball players, and even a college hoops hero, this season is shaping up to be one of the most competitive ever. And at four weeks long, it鈥檚 the shortest ever, too 鈥 which means there鈥檚 no time to waste. For the first time in the show鈥檚 history, DWTS eliminated two couples on premiere night.

Read on to find out who went home, and check out the rest of the week one rankings below. (These rankings are based solely on scores from Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli, but as DWTS fans know, eliminations are based on a combination of scores and votes, so get to voting for your favorite pair.)
