Dancing with the Stars power rankings: the Fop Five

As Dancing with the Stars heats up, which tandems are best positions to take home the title?

Brooke and Derek are the ones to beatNot so fast, Brooke Burke and Derek Hough. While this tandem is the favorite on season seven of Dancing with the Stars, a quartet of other couples will have something to say about the champion.  

Can Brooke Burke and Derek Hough go wire-to-wire this season on Dancing with the Stars?

This tandem has led the way every week of the competition, but past seasons have taught fans to see the series as a marathon, not a sprint.

With that in mind, here are the five couples, ranked in order, that we think have the best chance of taking home season seven's trophy:

1. Brooke Burke and Derek Hough: They haven't had an off-week yet. Even backstage fighting has resulted in on-camera chemistry.

2. Warren Sapp and Kym Johnson: The only thing bigger than Sapp? The ever-growing fan base for this former NFL All-Pro.

3. Cody Linley and Julianne Hough: Slowly pacing themselves, these young, attractive stars will benefit a legion of loyal fans.

4. Lance Bass and Lacey Schwimmer: Would be ranked higher, purely based on talent. But Bass loses points for possessing an extensive background in dancing.

5. Maurice Greene and Cheryl Burke: She's won the competition twice and his personality is coming out more every week.
