Immunity Challenge: Breathing Space
Using eight individual bamboo snorkels, four for each tribe, the castaways had to submerge themselves underwater and breathe through the snorkel. Once a tribe member came up for air, their time was stopped. The tribe with the longest cumulative running time under water would win.

|“||(voting for Erin) This is probably one of the most difficult votes that I've ever had to do. You've been a great tribemate. You've been a great companion.||”|
|“||(voting for Ken) I think you've roughed it enough. It seems like it's beginning to wear on you.||”|
|“||I'm very happy the way that I played the game. My number one goal was to make it to the jury and I made it. I wasn't predicting to get voted off tonight, but that's how the game is. I came to Thailand with a small bag and myself and I'm leaving with more than I ever could have expected. I'm ready to sit back now and watch and see how the rest of the game is played because it's extremely unpredictable.||”|
Still in the Running
- This is the first time that the jury phase has begun before the merge.
- This is the only episode to feature a tribal Immunity Challenge at the final nine.
- This is the first and only time Chuay Gahn sat out a member in a challenge.

- The episode title was said by Brian Heidik after describing his trust with the Sook Jai tribe living at the Chuay Gahn tribe's camp.
