Meanwhile at Sook Jai, Robb spazzed out after being bitten by a sea creature. He threw a temper tantrum on the beach, and Shii Devil -- after doing a bang-on imitation -- urged him to be a mature person.
In the next immunity challenge, Clay hit Brian in the head with a raw fish, but the tribe still managed to "sort their way to victory." So Sook Jai headed off to Tribal Council, and Stompanie, looking very Sarah Jessica Parker-ish in a post-boot confessional, is still stuck on the whole difference-in-priorities thing. She's obviously not over the boot, and claims to have "busted [her] ass" getting water for the tribe. Stompanie insists that she wasn't in the game for the money, but to challenge herself and have an adventure. She says she did exactly that. Her hair looks much better wavy and down then in the Laura Ingalls braids.
On Day 16, Robb suspected Ken of manipulating the votes. Robb's not fucking stupid! Except he totally is. The Sook Jai tribe managed to get along after winning a reward challenge feast, and Shii Devil learned that having friends feels nice. Then Robb burped.
Chuay Gahn won the logic puzzle immunity challenge, which many people think Shii Devil threw. Back at camp, Robb said, "Amen, bro," when Ken called him a good man. Then off to Tribal Council they went, where Robb got voted out and encouraged the others to at least spell his name with the proper "two Bs." In his post-boot commentary, Robb tells us he's surprised to have lasted so long because of his young age and outspokenness. He wishes he didn't get into the stupid argument with Ken because he felt like he was trying to "have a petty squabble" with a cop over a speeding ticket. He congratulates himself for lasting eighteen days "without tryin' to screw with anyone's head." Screwing with their throats is an entirely different matter.
On Day 19, the tribes didn't merge.
They did, however, think they merged, when Peachy announced they would now live together on one beach. Ambassadors from each tribe selected Chuay Gahn, and then the group cheered and declared themselves a family. Later, blue Jan didn't want to be the statue anymore, and Shii Devil enjoyed making friends without being judged. In the post non-merge celebration, a drunken Jan bit it, and Brian showed the others he was human and "one of them" by puking. Chuay Gahn made a play for Shii Devil's vote, and she was "working a deal" to vote Penny off.
Prior to the immunity challenge, the tribes learned that the merge we now know didn't happen didn't, well, happen. Peachy certainly didn't say anything to give them that impression, did he? So they still competed as individual tribes, and were finally put where they belong: in jail. Seriously, Survivor could in most cases borrow it's ending from Seinfeld. Ted managed to squeeze through a very small space, and Chuay Gahn won the challenge. Sook Jai headed directly to Tribal Council, where potential traitor Shii Devil called Penny "manipoolative" and then met her untimely fate. In her post-boot confessional, Shii Devil says she stirred things up and let it "all come out." She proudly announces, "I'm liberated!" And then she also rambles about herself in the third person -- what's with that? -- by saying, "The Shii Devil is here. I'm here to stir up a leeeettle trouble for all the rest of you. So now you know what the real game is, and now you can all go fight amongst yourselves. I'll just be over hear munching on this chicken neck." Except without that last part.
