He's a Snake, but He's My Snake is the fifth episode of Survivor: Gabon.
Challenge: Snake In The Grass
The tribes would be tethered to a 20-foot (6.1 m) long, 200-pound (91 kg) cloth snake. The tribes would start at opposite ends of an oval course. Both tribes would run counter-clockwise around the course and try to catch up to the other tribe. If a tribe member could not continue, they may unhook themselves from the snake and the remaining tribe members would continue the challenge. The first tribe to catch the other tribe and touch one of the opposing tribe members would win.
Reward: Croissants, fruit tarts, chocolate éclairs, coffee, and tea.
Winner: Kota (exiled Sugar Kiper)
Challenge: Jungle Relay
The tribes would divide into three pairs. Each pair would be tethered together by a rope. The first pair would crawl under a cargo net, race through the jungle, go through an obstacle, retrieve two sections of a flag pole, and return to the starting line. The next pair would run the same course with an additional obstacle to retrieve the next two pieces of the flag pole. The final pair would run the course with two additional obstacles and retrieve the final two pieces of the flag pole. The first tribe to collect all of the flag pole pieces and assemble their flag would win.

|“||(votes for Kelly) My dear, this has been a long time into coming. Hopefully, it happens tonight.||”|
|“||(votes for Crystal) To the actress: A. you need a bigger personality B. you definitely aren't as tough as you look. C. we used to be girls, but I don't know what happened. Peace out.||”|
|“||(votes for Kelly) Kelly, you made a pretty good run, for it, but it is, uh, time for you to go.||”|
|“||(votes for Kelly) I think you are a moron and I really hope you are dunzo before me.||”|
|“||(votes for Kelly) F***ing forget you, go home.||”|
|“||(votes for Kelly) Like OMG, it's like time for you to go, I'm sorry.||”|
|“||I voted for Crystal because, you know what? She doesn't really have the power to push a team when she's the one quitting half the challanges. I think the Fang tribe is still cursed. I think they're still going to go down. They need to work together. Maybe tonight's Tribal Council, they'll communicate better, but I definitely wanted to stay in the game, you know, if it's my time to go, it's my time to go.||”|
