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. Nicolas & Donald and TK & Rachel 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. Azaria & Hendekea, Kynt & Vyxsin, Lorena & Jason, Nathan & Jennifer, Ron & Christina, and Shana & Jennifer chose this task.
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. The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
