Man, They Should Have Used Their Fake Names is the tenth episode of The Amazing Race 9.

Synopsis

Knowing that the Million Dollar Prize is within their reach, the final four teams turn up the intensity.

Teams fly to Darwin, Australia and must wade through a crocodile-infested pool to receive their next clue. The Racers also perform an intense Roadblock which requires one teammate to perform a tandem skydive with a trained professional. This entire leg is full of foot races which culminate with a three-way sprint to the Pit Stop. Meanwhile, Teams continue to play head games with each other and one duo takes the scheming a step further when they cancel all the cabs waiting for the remaining teams.[1]
