Jordan Lloyd and Jeff Schroeder are a Newly Dating team on The Amazing Race 16.

A crossover team from Big Brother, Jordan & Jeff found success by forming a partnership with Brent & Caite early on, even managing to win the first leg. However, the recency of their relationship began to show, as the stresses of the race began to wear on them, leading to communication issues stemming from only having met each other months prior. They came in last in the fourth leg, but were saved by a Non-Elimination Leg. However, a lack of bunching over the next two legs meant that they were stuck at the bottom of the pack; They managed to survive their Speed Bump in the fifth leg due to Joe & Heidi being U-Turned, but their struggles with mental tasks and navigation finally caught up to them in the sixth leg, and despite being within striking distance of Brent & Caite at the Detour, their fate was sealed their champagne glass tower collapsed, resulting in their elimination in 7th place.
