Chan Loh (ចន្លុះ) is a tribe from Survivor: Kaôh Rōng. They are the "Brains" tribe.

A complete opposite from their predecessors, the original Chan Loh only lost one member before the Tribe Switch. Despite their winning streak, tribal dynamics caused a divide, resulting in three separate factions and an early blindside. After the switch, Chan Loh lost only one Reward Challenge and was staved off from attending Tribal Council. Their tribe color is blue.

Tribe History

The "Brains" tribe of the season, Chan Loh was composed of personalities that frequently clashed with each other. The tribe was, however, coherent enough to avoid the first two Tribal Councils. Though it seemed that the four younger players had seized control of the game, Peter had other plans. Seeing Debbie and Joe to be pawns and goats in an eventual merge, he and Liz formed a pact and saw an opportunity to pull the two older players into an alliance to blindside either Aubry or Neal. Meanwhile, Debbie had been rubbed the wrong way by Peter and Liz's blatant scheming, and especially by his open arrogance about his position in the tribe. Joe had recently conflicted with Liz, thus opening another rift between the two factions.

A chance to see the plan materialize presented itself when the Brains lost their first and only Immunity Challenge on Day 8. Liz and Peter congregated with each of the two factions at a time in an attempt to orchestrate Neal's blindside. They attempted to get the older faction to vote against Neal, and Aubry and Neal to vote against Joe. Though it seemed that the conspirators had locked themselves in the optimal spot for the rest of the game, Debbie and Joe saw an opportunity to break Peter's hold of the game. The pair successfully got Aubry and Neal to vote against Peter in order to split the vote, hence turning the original schemers' plan against them.

At Chan Loh's first Tribal Council, Peter and Liz were open about their high spot on the food chain. Peter went so far as to brag about his dominance over the tribe. This only sought to turn the rest of Chan Loh against them even more. Their confidence was shattered when the majority forced a three-way tie. In the revote, Liz became the tribe's first casualty as she was seen to be the weaker of the two schemers.

Chan Loh resumed their winning streak in the next few challenges. After an exhausting attempt at the Reward Challenge, in which they almost lost Debbie to a medical evacuation, Chan Loh emerged victorious and won coffee and spices. Their streak extended to the Immunity Challenge, where they made up from an early disadvantage and won.

On Day 12, Neal found a Hidden Immunity Idol, which he kept from his tribe. That same day, Chan Loh walked into a Tribe Switch, and gained new members. The new Chan Loh tribe was apparently split down tribal lines, with the Brains and Beauty duo scrambling for the Brawn duo's votes. However, the tribe won the following Immunity Challenge and was safe from the vote.

As Debbie continued to forge relationships and alliances with her new tribemates, former Beauty members Michele and Nick debated on whether or not to trust Debbie.

At the Reward Challenge, Chan Loh lost by a narrow margin to Gondol, losing out on a picnic reward. However, they recouped and secured yet another victory at the Immunity Challenge and kept themselves away from another Tribal Council. Thus, all six of the members of post-switch Chan Loh made it to the merge.



  • The Chan Loh beach eventually became Ta Keo's in Cambodia. This beach is known as Lonely Beach.
  • Post-switch Chan Loh started with exactly one representative of each gender from every original tribe.
  • Chan Loh's tribe emblem, the green crocodile, could be an homage to the former "Brains" tribe, Luzon, a green tribe.
