Amazing Race 23 eliminated Hoskote & Naina Venkatesh in episode 1 tonight. Tonight’s episode kicked off with an introduction to all the new teams. Then host, Phil Keoghan, told them to get their first clue inside the vehicles that were waiting for them. Phil also let them know that the first team to complete the first leg of the race, would win 2 express passes. However, they would have to give one of them to a different team.
After the teams got their first clue, they learned they had to catch a flight to Chile to get their next clue. After arriving in Chile, they hit a Road Block where one team member had to paraglide off a cliff, while the other teammate had to meet them at the location they landed at, to get their next clue. Next, the teams had to go to a park that was located in a different part of the city to get their next clue. Once they arrived, they hit another Road block , where they had to collect a certain number of fish and deliver them to the correct person to get their next clue.
Once they completed the fish challenge, they were instructed to hip up the pit stop for this leg of the race. Nicole & Travis arrived in first place,but were penalized 30 minutes for not traveling on foot to the final pit stop, so Tim & Marie took over their first place spot,winning the 2 express passes. Then Nicole & Travis were able to secure the second place spot after serving their 30 minute penalty.
Shane & Rowan arrived in 3rd place, Chester & Ephraim arrived in 4th place, Nicky & Kim arrived in 5th place, Ally & Ashley arrived in 6th place, Jamal & Leo arrived in 7th place, Jason & Amy arrived in 8th place, Tim & Danny arrived in 9th place, Brandon & Adam arrived in 10th place,and Hoskote and Naina showed up last after running into trouble with the fish in the 2nd Road Block challenge.
