Choir Boy at Heart is the sixth episode of The Amazing Race 23.
The order of departure from Sopot Pier are as follows:
Teams must take a train to Vienna, Austria. Upon arrival, teams must make their way to the Vienna State Opera and meet a person dressed as Rigoletto, who would take them to the opera house's costume department to receive their next clue.
The Fast Forward instructions were given to teams after receiving their clue at the Vienna State Opera. Teams must make their way to the Donauturm to perform a 500-foot bungee jump back down to the ground to win the Fast Forward. However, in the event of unfavorable weather, teams would be informed that the task would not be available until optimal conditions returned so they can complete the task safely. None of the teams won the Fast Forward, however, Jason & Amy attempted to do so, but were unable due to strong winds.
Choice A: Light Brigade
Teams must make their way to Ephesos Museum, where they must dress up as court servants and put together an elaborate crystal chandelier. Once it is put together properly, the chamberlain would give them their next clue. If they are incorrect on their first try, the chamberlain will destroy the chandelier, forcing them to start over.
None of the teams chose this task.
All teams chose this task.
Choice B: Masquerade
Teams must make their way to the Austrian Theatre Museum, where they must put on elaborately colored masks and join a Viennese ball. They must search among the dancers for the two wearing masks identical to their own, needing to pay attention, as the masks only differ in minute detail. Once they find the correct dancers, the hostess would give them their next clue.
Teams must make their way to Palais Augarten, where they would find their next clue.
"Who's a choir boy at heart?"
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must learn how to sing Franz Schubert's "Die Forelle", and then perform the song with the Vienna Boys' Choir. When the choir master is satisfied with their German pronunciation and musicality, he would give them their next clue.
