Episode Summary

EDIT
The tribes trek through a Thai village divided in men amd women thinking that they will be divided along gender lines, but when they meet Jeff, they are informed that in Thai traditions the eldest are given more respect and advantages. This means that the oldest man and woman, Jake and Jan, are to pick the tribes. At Sook Jai, Robb and Shii Ann have an argument on building the shelter, and Stephanie goes skinny dipping, while at Chuay Gahn, Tanya is feeling sick, and Helen and John argue while finding the water pit. At the first challenge Chuay Gahn takes a lead but a mistake proves fatal and costs the tribe Immunity. John's friction with his tribemates earlier appears to be enough to get him ousted, as he becomes the first to leave Thailand.moreless
