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 travel by train to Vienna, Austria. Upon arrival, teams must travel by taxi to Vienna State Opera and meet with person dressed as Rigoletto who will take them to the opera house's costume department to find their next clue.
Teams would have to travel 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 are 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 would have to dress up as court servants and put together an elaborate crystal chandelier. If it is put together properly, the chamberlain will 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.
Choice B: Masquerade
Teams would have to put on elaborately colored masks and join a Viennese ball. They have to search among the dancers for the two who'll wear masks identical to their own, but teams have to pay attention, as the masks only differ in minute detail. Once they find the right dancers, the hostess will give them their next clue.
All of the teams chose this task.
Teams must travel by taxi to Palais Augarten to find their next clue.
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to join the Vienna Boys' Choir and learn how to sing Franz Schubert's "Die Forelle". When the choir master is satisfied with the teams' German pronunciation and musicality, he will award them their next clue.
