Each week, fans are on the edges of their seat waiting to see who will rise to victory — and who will fall. Keep reading to find out who went home on Special Forces.

The two-hour premiere of Special Forces followed the 16 recruits during their first two days at base camp. And the group said goodbye to four competitors during that time.

The first recruit to leave was Kate Gosselin, who, when tasked with diving out of a helicopter into a body of water, inadvertently injured her neck in the process. Despite tearfully requesting to stay, Kate was sent to the hospital for X-rays and was forced to medically tap. Then, Dr. Drew Pinsky suffered from severe dehydration and "medically withdrew" from the competition.

Chef Tyler Florence became the third recruit to leave and the first to "voluntarily withdraw" from the competition. Tyler revealed he had promised his wife he wouldn't hurt himself on the show and left out of an abundance of caution after seeing the competition's effects on the other recruits.

Finally, musician Montell Jordan made his exit after breaking his thumb during a combat challenge where he had to fight a Directing Staff agent.

At the end of Day 2, Jamie Lynn Spears hit her breaking point and decided to voluntarily withdraw from the exercise, claiming she missed her kids. And Britney Spears's younger sister is not the only recruit to be mentally struggling with the competition.

On Day 3, Olympic medalist Nastia Liukin didn't want to go through with the military-style exercise in which the recruits would be submerged in water in a car and have to hold their breath for 20 seconds.

Though she completed the challenge, fellow competitor Gus Kenworthy made a comment because Directing Staff member Remi Adeleke completed the challenge alongside Nastia, which Gus felt was unfair.

Ultimately, Nastia decided to leave the competition after returning to base camp.

While the recruits were winding down and getting ready for Day 4, Mel B was outside smoking a cigarette and reflecting on her time. Kenya Moore made a comment about Mel B smoking too close to the tent, and the Spice Girl snapped.

Having reached her breaking point, Mel B decided that was the end of the competition for her, and told the DS that she would like to withdraw.
