All of the teams chose this task.

Choice B: On the Beach
Teams would have to pick up an umbrella loaded with bikinis and a mobile changing station and sell the bikinis to people on the beach. The buyers then have to change into the bikinis in the mobile changing station. Once teams earned R$100, they will receive their next clue.
