Ted struggles with beaching the boat, while Jake peeks at him from the cave without offering to help. He voice-overs that he's looking for a Chuay Gahn member to bring to the Sook Jai side, but he doesn't know whom to trust. We see Clay tell Jake that although they love Ted, they're tired of listening to him, and his attitude is getting old. Jake pushes Clay to say that if he had to cast a vote today, he'd vote off Ted. Jake tells us in an interview that he just "got a sense" that the Chuay Gahn tribe was tired of Ted. That Jake is really good at sniffing out the obvious. Clay tells Jake that they were originally going to vote out Ken, but have since realized what a "good guy" he is. Which is exactly why they'd want to vote him out, so I have no idea why Jake is buying Clay's crap except out of sheer desperation. Ken struts down the beach, while Ted does yoga. Jake tells Clay that if they can get some kind of an alliance "cookin' right now," they will be able to handle things "systematically." I think Chuay Gahn is already quite capable of handling things "systematically"; it's just not the system of choice for Jake.
Jake scurries back to both Penny and Ken with the news that Ted will be Chuay Gahn's choice to go at the next Tribal Council. He then tells us in an interview that he's trying to salvage his own predicament as well as the predicament of the Sook Jai tribe. He's trying to "ooch" his way into the final four. "Ooch" sounds like a word CC would use to describe a female body part.
We arrive at the immunity challenge, once again having been spared the clue. The camera pans over a giant grid in the sand, marked by lots of little flags, and a board with nine numbered symbols. Peachy welcomes the S8 to the challenge and shows them the tortuous-looking, giant, gold immunity necklace. Whichever members of the S8 wears it they guarantees him- or herself immunity in the next Tribal Council. Not to mention entry to P. Diddy's next party on the Vineyard. Peachy explains that this challenge is also a two-parter, the first part of which is a memory-testing elimination game, followed by the "final showdown race" on the grid course we saw earlier. Peachy points out the board, which he explains has the numbers one through nine written in "English" and in corresponding Thai symbols. The S8 will have thirty seconds to memorize the symbols before Peachy quizzes them; when they miss one answer, they're out of the game. The S8 study the squiggles and curves, and then Peachy asks them to show him the number nine. It looks like a little sperm, and Ken, Clay, and Penny get it right. Everyone else is eliminated, so we're already down to the final three. Peachy next quizzes them on the spirally number one, which Ken and Clay both get right. Penny, however, is wrong. Hee. Penny is wrong. I like saying that.
