As Clay and Brian amble through the countryside, the requisite peaceful music plays. They agree that it's "some pretty country," and then Clay voice-overs about the gorgeousness of the limestone cliffs, mountains, hills, and caves. He says there's no way to describe the beauty of the place, which he claims is "off the beaten track and the world really doesn't know it's here." And maybe Clay didn't know Thailand existed before being selected for Survivor, but the rest of us had a pretty good idea. Clay admires the land -- "Gosh, almighty" -- which is immediately followed by rumbling from the elephant, causing him to exclaim, "Oh, hell." They determine that the elephant is indeed farting, and the camera closes in on the elephant's ass. That's elephant's ass is quite the camera hog. In any case, Clay points out that the elephant is feeling better post-fart, and then says, "That's what you're gonna blow your nose." Whatever that means. Clay and Brian agree that Jake is most likely trying to control the action at Chuay Jai right about now, which brings us back to camp.
Helen and Jake paddle along in the canoe and agree that it's okay that they didn't win the challenge. Jake -- master of the obvious -- says, "We're not in the helicopter, but we're in the canoe." He asks if he can talk to Helen without their conversation leaving the canoe, and Helen is willing. Jake tells her that Clay and Brian are going to win the game. Then Helen tells us in an interview, that before leaving camp, Clay and Brian warned her to keep an eye on Jake. At the water hole, Jake claims that the only way to win the game at this point is to get rid of one or both of them, to which Helen replies, "You got a good point." Jake offers to share the "pecking order" with Helen, who acts amazed, but then tells us in an interview that Jake must be getting his information from a decent source, because he confirmed what she'd already heard from the others. Since this information is not shared with us, we might reasonably deduce that it's the exact way in which the game will eventually play out. Helen again feigns surprise when Jake reveals that he told Ted why he cast his vote against him. In a forlorn interview, Jake tells us he has to keep trying. He whines, "I mean, what can I do? I can sit here and get voted off, or I can stir up a little somethin' that might get me a little bit further." He's got nothing to lose. Except his dignity, that is, but after five seasons, it's clear that dignity is no prerequisite for the game. Jake flatters Helen by suggesting that she has a good chance of winning. He thinks she could probably take Clay in the final two, but he's not sure about Brian. Helen agrees, causing Jake to point out that as much as she might love Brian, Helen will have to take him out now in order to prevail. In an interview, Jake tells us that he "gave her some things to think about," because a million dollars is a good reason to turn on someone no matter how much you like them. Helen asks how Jake proposes to get rid of Clay, so either she refused to turn on Brian just yet, or we missed some of the conversation. Jake responds that they'll have to vote out whichever of the two doesn't win immunity. Helen tells us she'll be "deep in thought" for the rest of the day wondering whether Jake is being honest, or if he's just playing the game. In his position, she'd do what was necessary to last longer, too. Jake continues to work Helen by insisting that she's the only one who can beat Brian or Clay at this point in the game. In an interview, he tells us that he does think Helen can win without Brian and Clay in the picture. He sneakily adds, "Of course, if she got rid of Brian and Clay, I think I'd be back in the hunt."
