The Tour Group settled into Thailand for the episode entitled, the Elephant in the Room, that aired at 12:30 a.m. on June 15, 2016. In this episode, Part of the group, Michelle and Heather, relaxed at the hotel by the pool.  Sandhurst got a Thai massage. Brandon, Misty, and Jared and Amy were also doing their own thing. Misty had a suit made.

The group planned to go on an Old Thai Rice Barge, but Michelle decided not to go, because she had a bad hangover. The rice barge was to be a luxury dinner cruise for the Tour Group. During their dinner, they went around and said a couple of things about Michael and Steven. Steven, who was definitely tipsy, suggested that they say one good thing and one bad thing about him.

When they were all talking, telling how they felt about the two guys, Jay couldn’t help but discuss the elephant in the room. There was a rumor going around that Jared had a happy ending after a massage he’d had in Bangkok.

Jared exploded, not in anger, but in frustration, as he addressed his situation with Misty. He said that it was difficult to meet a girl and two weeks later have gone around the world with her, and spend almost every waking moment with her. He ended his rampage by saying that he didn’t want to hurt her feelings, but he was getting those Thai massages! Everyone at the table on the barge was shocked that he’d said such a thing.

If it were me, now I know who you are. Any chance you had of ever going out with me..Done!

Brandon told the group that they would be going to Pattaya to see a Lady Boy show, one of the most elaborate in the area. Of course, a few of the guys in the Tour Group had to get made up as lady boys. Then, they headed to their hotel the Dusit Thani Hotel.

The next morning, one group went to the Pattaya Elephant Village, an elephant, and the other group went ziplining. It worked out that the guys went ziplining and the women went to the elephant sanctuary. Jeff started to have second thoughts. I see this chasm of death, Jeff said.

Back at the elephant reserve, Heather and Michelle refused to ride the elephants, but Jetta and the rest of the women did.

The guides announced the final destination, as a super-modern location, a full contrast with some of the other places that they visited. The travelers were happy to hear that they were headed to Tokyo.
