Chuay Jai (ช่วยใจ) is the merged tribe of Chuay Gahn and Sook Jai from Survivor: Thailand.

Chuay Jai is the smallest merged tribe in Survivor history, only having eight members following a Fake Merge six days prior to the tribe's official formation. The advent of the merge also marked the extinction of the former Sook Jai tribe, which entered the merge with a 5-3 deficit. Their tribe color is gold.

Trivia

  • With only eight members, Chuay Jai is the smallest merged tribe in Survivor history.

  • Chuay Jai is the first merged tribe to combine the starting tribes' names to produce their tribe name.
    • In Thai, the combination of Chuay (ช่วย - to help/to support) and Jai (ใจ - heart/mind) can be roughly translated to "to help someone's heart".
