Zip It, Bingo is the second episode of The Amazing Race 23.
The order of departure from Teatro Municipal de Iquique are as follows:
Teams must make their way to Museo Corbeta Esmeralda, where the officer on deck would post their next clue the following morning.
Teams must repeat to the officer on deck a famous quote, "¡Al abordaje, muchachos!" ("Charge the ship, men!"), uttered at the Battle of Iquique by Arturo Prat, the Esmeralda's last captain, in order to receive their next clue.
Teams must make their way to the Irlanda 3 road sign at the Atacama Desert, where they would find their next clue.
Choice A: Brining
Teams must ride a bicycle to the Mina de Sal Punta de Lobos, where they must carry bags of salt and dump them into a pool in order to reach neutral buoyancy. Once they are floating on the surface well enough to read the local newspaper, a salt miner would give them their next clue.
Brandon & Adam, Chester & Ephraim, Leo & Jamal, and Rowan & Shane chose this task.
Choice B: Mining
Teams must ride a bicycle to the Mina de Sal Punta de Lobos, where they must use pick axes and sledgehammers to open halite boulders until they find one that contained their next clue.
"Who's got the knack to pack?"
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must take on the role of a lustrabota, a Chilean shoeshiner. They must make their way to Paseo Ahumada, choose a marked lustrabota station, and shine a customer's shoes. Once the customer is satisfied with their work, they must put everything they have at their lustrabota station into the cart and set it up back together properly for transport back to the storage depot six blocks away at Merced 738. Once they have returned their properly-packed lustrabota station, they would receive their next clue.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Teams must zipline across the Maipo River to receive their next clue. If a team arrives after sunset, they would simply receive their clue.
