Loose Lips Sink Ships is the second episode of The Amazing Race 22.
The order of departure from Motu Café are as follows:
Choice A: Pick a Pearl
Teams must travel half a mile offshore in the open waters of Povai Bay, where they must dive beneath the waves to untie lines of pearl oyster shells and shuck them open to find two red pearls. Once they have found two red pearls, they must swim over to an oyster farmer and trade the pearls for their next clue.
Caroline & Jennifer, Idries & Jamil, Max & Katie, and Mona & Beth chose this task.
Choice B: Take a Trunk
Teams must dive underwater in Povai Bay, wearing special diving helmets, to look for a series of treasure trunks. They must take a trunk over to a submerged umbrella and unpack its contents, setting up an underwater picnic table to an underwater waiter's approval to receive their next clue. Only six workstations are available at a time.
"Who's a well-balanced individual?"
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must participate in a traditional Polynesian test of strength, walking on a pair of sparring stilts while kicking a coconut across a 35-yard stretch of beach. If they fall off of stilts, they must return to starting line, but the position of their coconut would not be reset. Once they have successfully kicked their coconut over the finish line, they may search for the nearby Pit Stop to check in.
