Chuay Jai

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

The tribe holds the record for having the fewest members among merged tribes 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, having entered the merge with a 5-3 deficit.
