Let's Name Our Chicken Phil is the fourth episode of The Amazing Race 12.
The order of departure from the outskirts of Bingo are as follows:
Teams must make their way on foot along a marked path to a nearby village and find the village chief. There, they would be given a gift of a chicken from the chief, which they must retrieve from a pen and take with them throughout the leg to the Pit Stop.
Teams must take a taxi to the town of Bouda-Pelegtanga, where they would find their next clue.
Choice A: Shake Your Pan
Teams must use traditional methods to pan for one ounce of gold. Once done, they can trade their gold for their next clue.
Azaria & Hendekea, Kynt & Vyxsin, Lorena & Jason, Nathan & Jennifer, Ron & Christina, and Shana & Jennifer chose this task.
Choice B: Shake Your Booty
Teams must learn a traditional local dance and perform it with Winiama masked dancers and perform it in front of three local celebrity judges and a crowd of locals while infusing some of their own creativity. Teams only had one attempt, and if the judges felt that a team lacked creativity or had a bad performance, they would incur a 10-minute penalty. After successfully performing the dance or waiting out the penalty, teams would receive their next clue.
Teams must make their way on foot to Pelegtanga Market, where they would find their next clue.
At Pelegtanga Market, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team. Shana & Jennifer used the U-Turn on Lorena & Jason. Since Lorena & Jason completed the Shake Your Booty Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Shake Your Pan Detour before continuing.
Teams must take a taxi to Tampouy Goat Market in Ouagadougou, where they would find their next clue.
"Who's ready for a juggling act?"
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must ride a bicycle and deliver a large amount of cumbersome goods, including a small goat to a specific person stated in their clue at a nearby market. Once delivered, that person would hand them their next clue.
