I believe what it comes down to is proving exactly who has the skills and courage to lead the others. Jack is all about bravery and calling Ralph a coward. Thus, when jack leaves to hunt down the beast, Ralph understands that he has lost respect in the eyes of most of the boys. If he's the chief, he has to act like the chief.
