The remaining nine teams took off from their Pit Stop in a lakeside village in Amsterdam and were instructed to fly Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso in Africa. Upon arrival, the teams took taxis to the area train station, where a long wait for a morning train allowed them to mingle and have fun. The teams then took a train to Bingo in the middle of the African Savannah, where they were faced with a Roadblock. This challenging Roadblock forced one member of each team to deal with camels, a task that proved extremely frustrating for one racer in particular. Upon completing the task, they then led a group of four camels along a marked path. Several teams were forced to backtrack after going in the wrong direction, leading one racer to admit that their partner is better at navigation. Once the teams reached the cluebox at the end of the correct path, they were presented with a Detour. Ultimately, one team that had struggled was able to just make it ahead of another to the Pit Stop on the outskirts of Bingo, causing another team to be eliminated.
Season 12 Episode 3 of The Amazing Race resulted in a 0.00 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
The Amazing Race is an adventure reality show hosted by Phil Keoghan that pits 10, 11, or 12 teams of 2 or 4 people against each other in a race around the world for approximately 40 days. In a leg, they go to destinations where they will complete a roadblock, a task where 1 person completes (Season 1-7) or 2 people (Season 8), a detour, where you have to decide between two tasks that are usually opposite of each other, and a miscellaneous task.
After they complete all these tasks, they will be directed to go to a Pit stop where they will have a 24 hour rest period where they will be able to eat, drink, sleep, and mingle with other teams. The last team to check into the Pit Stop usually is eliminated, but sometimes there is a non-elimination leg in which no one is eliminated. After all teams are eliminated except for 3, these three race to the finish line where the winning team wins 1 million dollars.
