16, at Sook Jai, Robb talked to Penny about
the game and the truthfulness of the people
in the tribe. He asked Penny if she had
any intention of voting against him during
the previous Tribal Council. In reply, Penny
said that it didn't even cross her mind
to vote Robb off. Robb then said that Ken
told him that Penny was going to vote against
her. Penny thought that Robb may be thinking
that Ken is playing both sides. After his
conversation with Penny, Robb went straight
to Ken and confronted him about the issue.
He told Ken what he thought. And as Ken
realized the accusations being thrown at
him, he defended himself resulting to a
heated argument. The rest of the tribe just
looked on as the two continued fighhting.
It finally ended with Robb walking away.
the other side of the island, Helen and
Jan swam together to get water. Jan expressed
her frustrations about the loss of their
boat. She said that it would have been much
easier to do such tasks if they had it.
Helen felt the same. After the two women
came back to camp, the men decided to look
for their missing boat. They figured that
the boat could have been caught in the small
island opposite their beach. As the men
began their swim towards the island, Helen
expressed her concern. According to her,
land may look near when you're in the water.
She was concerned that the guys might encounter
some huge problems. Luckily, Brian, Clay
and Ted reached the small island without
experiencing any major problem. Although,
they weren't as thrilled when they reached
the island. There was no sign of their boat
at all. They went back to camp unsuccessful.
at Sook Jai, the Ken-Robb conflict is becoming
worse. Robb took some bananas from their
basket and ate them. Ken, of course, wasn't
so happy about it. According to him, the
whole tribe have agreed to wait for the
bananas to become ripe before they eat them.
He added that it is unfair to the rest of
the tribe. On the other hand, Robb said
he was hungry and he felt that he didn't
have to ask permission. He added that he
also worked hard to win the food so he deserves
to have some. While the two were in the
middle of their discussion, Shii Ann tried
to butt in with her thoughts. However, Penny
advised her to stay out of it and let the
two men work things out between each other.
that day, the two tribes competed at the
Reward Challenge. It was a game wherein
the tribes have to catch the Takraw balls
shot to them by their teammate, while trying
to prevent the other tribe from catching
theirs. The first tribe to catch five balls
win. As the game started, Sook Jai easily
led Chuay Gahn 4-1. Robb caught all the
four balls for Sook Jai, facing weak opposition
from Brian. Realizing their position, Chuay
Gahn called for a time out. When they returned,
Brian and Ted switched guards. Ted was now
guarding Robb. As the game progressed, it
turned out to be a very good move for Chuay
Gahn as they jumped back to tie the game
4-4. Robb, guarded by Ted, had a very tough
time catching the balls. But thanks to Ken,
Robb's efforts didn't go to waste as he
caught Sook Jai's fifth ball that won them
the reward. Their reward was a Thai feast
complete with some music and Thai dancers.
The tribe enjoyed their reward very much.
According to Shii Ann, for the first time
it felt like they were real friends just
hanging out with each other.
at Chuay Gahn, the tribe contemplated their
loss. Ted expressed his disappointment saying
that it is especially hard knowing that
you gave it your best shot. The tribe mainly
attributed their loss to being tired because
of all the swimming they did to fetch water
and to find the boat. The next day, the
tribe woke up to a beautiful sunrise. Ted
expressed his anticipation of the merge.
The rest figured that they have to win the
next immunity to be in a good position once
they merge with the other tribe. Later,
Ted talked to Brian about their alliance.
Ted advised Brian to be cautious since he
suspects that Clay is on to them.
Sook Jai, Ken and Robb went for a walk through
the jungle. They came across a cave where
they had a little talk. Robb talked about
how amazing it is to be there and that he
should cherish his time there because he
may never come back again. As they continued,
Ken talked to Robb about learning to listen.
Ken said that all his efforts to help Robb
would just go to waste if he kept doing
what he's been doing. In the end, Robb was
"enlightened" and confessed to
have changed his entire perspective of the
whole experience and of his life. The two
came back at peace with one another.
the rest of the Chuay Gahn tribe was looking
for clams by the shore, Jan caught their
attention saying that they need to have
a funeral. When Helen asked her why, she
said that she found a dead baby bat. Helen
took a look at it and according to her it
wasn't even a baby bat yet, she said that
it's still in its embryonic stage. Nevertheless,
Jan felt very emotional about the death
of the baby bat. She dug a hole on the ground,
buried the little bat, and even placed a
small cross on top. Brian commented that
he's not sure whether Jan was just being
too emotional, or she's really losing it
out there. Later that day, they received
tree mail informing them of their next challenge.
Immunity Challenge was a mental test. The
game was called "Thai 21." There
are 21 flags inside a circle. The two tribes
will take turns in removing flags from the
circle. They can either remove 1, 2, or
3 flags in each turn. At the end of the
game, the tribe that gets to remove the
last flag wins. It was a difficult challenge
for the tribes, as both struggled in making
decisions throughout the game. But in the
end, Chuay Gahn outsmarted Sook Jai and
won Immunity for the second time in a row.
was a heartbreaking loss for Sook Jai. According
to Ken, this is the first challenge they
lost that he felt very bad about. That night,
the tribe opened the wines that they won
before and gathered to have a talk. Robb
talked about the changes that occurred to
him during his time in Thailand. According
to him, it changed his entire perspective
on life. He added that he realized how important
one's family really is, and that he misses
his family more than ever. He said that
whatever happens, he'll be going home a
winner. After hearing Robb, Ken and Shii
Ann expressed their thoughts about him.
They agreed to the fact that no matter what
their differences are with Robb, they think
that he is a really good man.
next morning, Sook Jai cooked another of
their chickens. According to Jake, it may
not be the best time to cook it but he felt
that they had to do it. The day was unusually
quiet for Sook Jai. That night, they went
to Tribal Council. There, they expressed
how grateful they are to Robb for inspiring
their growth. Everyone agreed that it's
probably the worst Tribal Council they ever
had. According to Shii Ann, it was especially
hard to vote someone off because the tribe
had become very close during the couple
of days that passed. But still they had
to make a decision. In the end, Robb was
voted out of the island, 5-1.
