13, The Sook Jai tribe looked forward to
a very hearty meal. They have decided to
kill one of the chickens that they won for
breakfast. It was Jake and Stephanie that
woke up early to prepare and cook the chicken.
As the rest of the tribe woke up, they eagerly
awaited around the fire where the chicken
was being boiled. As soon as it was done,
they immediately began their feast and everyone
enjoyed it. But while they were at it, Robb
was disturbed by Shii Ann's eating habits.
After she was done with the meat, she continued
eating the internal organs of the chicken.
From the liver, to the neck, to the heart,
nothing was spared. But for Shii Ann it
was nothing disturbing since she lived in
Taiwan for a long time. According to her,
it was totally normal in their culture.
Chuay Gahn, Brian and Ted set out to sea
early in the morning to go fishing. While
the two of them were in the boat, they talked
about their thoughts on the game. Eventually,
the two ended up discussing about having
an alliance with each other. It was Ted
who offered the deal saying that Brian has
his word until the end. Brian, on the other
hand, graciously accepted the offer.
at Sook Jai, the tribe relaxed after having
a hearty meal. Some of them went out to
the shore to enjoy the water. Robb, being
one of them, swam a little bit further.
While he was on his way back to the shore,
he suddenly gave out a scream and fell.
The others did nothing at first, thinking
that it was just Robb's natural hyperactivity.
But as Robb reached the shore, they realized
that Robb's foot was bleeding. Not sure
of what to do, they soaked Robb's foot in
hot water. Jake concluded that Robb may
have been stung by a sting ray. After a
while, everybody calmed down and Robb felt
night on Chuay Gahn, as the tribe was enjoying
Helen's christmas carol, their boat slowly
drifted away from the shore unnoticed. The
next day, Ted woke up realizing that their
boat is missing. The whole tribe was in
shock after discovering what happened. It
was the worst thing that could ever happen.
Their boat is the single most important
thing that they need to survive. They use
it for setting up the net, for fishing,
and more importantly for getting water.
Knowing that they can't go fishing without
the boat, the tribe desperately looked for
food near the shore. While they were busy,
Jan found tree mail and read it out loud
to them. With the tree mail was money worth
$1,000.00 which they will use to bid for
food in a food auction.
the auction, The two tribes were surprised
with the offer that host Jeff Probst gave
to them. They were asked if anyone of them
would like to switch tribes. They were given
60 seconds to think about it after which,
Jeff asked the tribes. He first asked Sook
Jai, but no one answered. Quoting JP, "I'll
take that as a no." He then turned
to Chuay Gahn and he got the same response.
With that aside, they proceeded to the auction.
The two tribes outbid each other to get
the food that they wanted. The Sook Jai
tribe won a burger with fries, a bowl of
seasoned and baked grub, and a plate of
hot fudge ice cream. On the other hand,
the Chuay Gahn tribe won meatball spaghetti
with garlic bread, nachos and margaritas,
and a pitcher of lemonade.
back to camp, the Chuay Gahn tribe felt
better after eating a lot during the auction.
It may have satsified their hunger and quenched
their thirst but certainly not their disappointment
over Ted, who was the one who tied their
boat to the shore. The way he tied it may
have been the factor why their boat easily
drifted away. That's why most of the tribe,
though not expressed openly, are blaming
Ted. They've been giving him the cold shoulder.
following day, tree mail informed them of
the next Immunity Challenge. It was a race
to sort fishes according to their kind.
The first one to sort out all of the fishes
correctly, by putting them into labeled
bins, wins. As the race started, it was
a head to head battle for immunity. At the
homestretch, Chuay Gahn edged out Sook Jai
and was able to put all of the fishes into
the bins. Waiting to be acknowledged, JP
advised them that there was one fish that
was sorted incorrectly. Hearing this, Sook
Jai continued to sort their fishes out.
A few moments later, the Chuay Gahn tribe
was able to locate their mistake and found
the incorrectly sorted fish. They quickly
placed it into its proper bin and they were
declared the winners.
back from the challenge, the Sook Jai tribe
members contemplated on who they would vote
for at Tribal Council. Erin and Robb, while
fetching water, talked about their being
annoyed with Shii Ann. Noticing that she
is being talked about, Shii Ann felt concerned.
Jake comforted her by saying that she just
shouldn't mind their tribemates who are
talking about her. In the end, Shii Ann
only received two votes during Tribal Council.
On the other hand, Stephanie received five
votes against her, making her the fifth
castaway to be voted off Koh Tarutao.
