Monique Pryor and Shawne Morgan are a team of Moms/Attorneys on The Amazing Race 16.

These moms looked like they could be top contenders after strong showings on the first two legs. However, Shawne struggled with the lasso Roadblock during leg 3, taking over 100 tries to lasso her steer, putting them in last place. Though they had a chance to catch up at the Detour, they struggled with the polo side, eventually deciding to switch Detours and sealing their fate in 9th place.
