Survivor: Samoa episode 14 detailed F5 immunity challenge spoilers/ speculation
  All the shots in the ads (so far) are restricted to the points leading up to the final five IC, but don't show anyone actually competing. Which is fine, we guess, since the one shot of the pre-IC lineup shows a bit of the course. Note that the hiking shots all appear to be pre-challenge because Russell and Brett's buffs match exactly the pre-challenge lineup shot (as do everyone's clothes), which is pretty unlikely to be true after a physical challenge such as this one.
   This challenge appears to be a basic obstacle course, although we're probably only seeing part of it. Behind the lined-up contestants, we see a net run, a couple of balance beams, and a post with a bag (possibly bags) tied to it. We're going to go out on a limb here, and predict that the bag has puzzle pieces in it. You heard it here first (actually, probably heard it in your head first, the second we said "bag"). So yeah, obstacle course followed by a puzzle.
    Update: We originally had the shot of Brett in the red headband as the F4 IC, but upon further review, the buff he's wearing underneath is identically positioned to the other shots from this challenge. So it's merely a shot of Brett at the starting line, as Probst prepares to say his usual "Survivors ready? Go!" bit at the start of the F5 IC.

The final five hike in
Led, of course, by Natalie
The millionaire, and his ego
The guy who'll temporarily take off the necklace
The guy who sometimes thinks about doing something, then decides against it
And the other guy who sometimes thinks about doing something, then decides against it
All lined up and ready to go...
Still ready...
Even readier...

   So who wins? Since Brett doesn't get booted, we'd guess he wins a third straight immunity challenge here. As for more airtight logic, Brett appears to be in the yellow lane for this one, and yellow appears to be the color the Survivor gods smile upon now in challenges. Can't poke a hole in that theory! (Update: apparently you can, since he's actually in the red lane. Shock! Awe!)
