I Just Hope He Doesn't Croak on Us is the ninth episode of The Amazing Race 12.
The order of departure from Bandra Fort are as follows:
"Who's the backseat driver?"
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must put on a hat and gloves as local cabbies do and transport a Japanese couple five miles through a maze of confusing, often one-way streets to the Osaka Central Post Office. They may not invite a local to lead them or join them in the car, and the couple may not help them. Upon arrival at the correct address, the couple would hand them their next clue. However, the drivers would also have to drive back to their teammate at JR Kanjosen Noda Station before they may open the clue.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Teams must take a taxi to the Kita-Mido Temple, where they would find their next clue.
Choice A: Sense of Touch
Teams must make their way on foot to the Shimojima Building and use miniature robots controlled by cellphones to play a game of soccer against two robotic defenders. Once each team member has scored a goal, the referee would hand them their next clue.
Only Nicolas & Donald chose this task.
Nathan & Jennifer, Ron & Christina, and TK & Rachel chose this task.
Choice B: Sense of Smell
Teams must make their way to the Saera Flower Shop, where only artificial flowers were sold. Once there, they must use only their noses to identify one real flower hidden among thousands of artificial ones in the two-story flower shop. When they have found a real flower, they may exchange it with the shop owner for their next clue.
