Caite Upton and Brent Horne Amazing RaceTwo teams are already gone, and nine teams are still running around the world in 'The Amazing Race 16.'

And while CBS hasn't exactly been generous with the airtime for a couple of teams, we've already seen enough game play in the first two episodes to boldly rank the racing pairs in order of their chances to win the $1 million prize.Two teams are already gone, and nine teams are still running around the world in 'The Amazing Race 16.' And while CBS hasn't exactly been generous with the airtime for a couple of teams, we've already seen enough game play in the first two episodes to boldly rank the racing pairs in order of their chances to win the $1 million prize.

Caite Upton and Brent Horne Amazing Race1. Caite Upton and Brent Horne
After a brush with YouTube infamy following her deer-in-the-headlights answer about maps in the Miss South Carolina pageant, Caite Upton should have a less embarrassing television credit when she and partner/boyfriend Brent Horne cross the finish line first in the series' final episode. Both are young and athletic, their communication is strong and Caite seems desperate to prove there is a brain to go with her beauty.

An early alliance with another team has already paid dividends, and Joe has promised to go nasty if that's what it takes. If they can avoid the squabbling that brings down so many married couples in the Race, they have an excellent chance at victory.

Jet and Cord McCoy Amazing Race3. Jet and Cord McCoy
The Oklahoma cowboy brothers have the coolest names in the race and won the second leg through a combination of wits (savvy bus scheduling) and luck (a detour that involved milking cows). A laid-back, low-key approach has worked for them thus far, but inattention to detail (buying Brazilian currency for a trip to Chile) could prove costly.

Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd Amazing Race4. Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd
The 'Big Brother' couple is off to a strong start, winning the first leg of the race despite Jordan's inability to comprehend simple time measurements. Ah. Jordan. No one has made scatterbrained this adorable since Goldie Hawn, but generally that's not an asset in competition.

Carol Rosenfeld and Brandy Snow Amazing Race5. Carol Rosenfeld and Brandy Snow
We'd have placed them higher in our predictions, had the promo for next week's episode not hinted at a major meltdown. If these two dating professionals can get past it, they could be a factor.

Dan and Jordan Pious Amazing Race6. Dan and Jordan Pious
Their dissing of Miss South Carolina was a memorable first-episode moment, but these brothers entered the race without knowing how to drive a stick shift automobile, and then promptly got lost once they got the car moving -- who's the real idiot?

Monique Pryor and Shawne Morgan Amazing Race7. Monique Pryor and Shawne Morgan
They're both attorneys, which makes them smarter than the average 'Big Brother' contestant, and they have finished middle of the pack for two weeks now. However, these 39 year-old moms may struggle in the later stages to keep up with younger, more athletic teams.

Steve and Allie Smith Amazing Race8. Steve and Allie Smith
Through two episodes, this personable father-daughter team has been tougher to find than a melisma-free singer on 'American Idol.' Perhaps the producers are suggesting we shouldn't grow too fond of them, as they won't be around very long.

Louis Stravato and Michael Naylor Amazing Race9. Louis Stravato and Michael Naylor
They're detectives, and they couldn't find their hotel when it was clearly marked and the only building on the street.
