Tribe History

The Weaker Tribe

The tribe was formed after a Schoolyard Pick. Jan picked what seemed to be a weaker tribe compared to the rival Sook Jai. This was evident early on, as Chuay Gahn lost the first two Immunity Challenges, as well as the first Reward Challenge. They voted out John - for his inability to gel - as well as Tanya, who was appearing to be very sick and unable to adapt to the environment.

Grindgate

Dysfunction was beginning to fracture the tribe, especially after the infamous Grindgate incident involving Ghandia and Ted. Though it seemed to be patched, a misunderstanding caused the feud to stay.

Shift in Momentum

After Sook Jai threw a challenge to get rid of Jed Hildebrand, Chuay Gahn saw a momentum shift that saw them lose only 2 of the upcoming challenges (and thereby voting out Ghandia). Sook Jai was forced to lose two of their own before the Fake Merge.

Fake Merge

At the Fake Merge, the five remaining members of Chuay Gahn saw Shii Ann, a member of the rival tribe, to be a useful asset. She made her intentions clear that she was open to flipping to the other tribe, and was voted out at Sook Jai's next Tribal Council. When the merge finally came, the tight-knit Chuay Gahn entered with a 5-3 advantage over Sook Jai.
