The Results Are IN... 'Taub,' 'Kutner,' and 'Thirteen' Join House's Diagnostic Team
Fellowship candidate Amber Volakis, otherwise known as "Cutthroat Bitch" (Anne Dudek), was fired at the end of the episode.

[via press release from FOX]



'Amber Volakis' ("Cutthroat Bitch") Fired

After conducting an uncoventional competition that started with 40 fellowship candidates, Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) has officially closed the case on who will join his diagnostic team. His final decision was revealed in Tuesday night's HOUSE episode "Games." HOUSE airs Tuesdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Fellowship candidates Chris Taub (Peter Jacobson), Lawrence Kutner (Kal Penn) and Thirteen (Olivia Wilde) weathered a competition that included an intense litany of unorthodox exercises, random eliminations and medical mysteries that tested their abilities and training, while House intruded into their personal lives to uncover more information than they were prepared to reveal. They will join Dr. Eric Foreman (Omar Epps) as part of House's Diagnostic Medicine team at Princeton- Plainsboro Hospital. Fellowship candidate Amber Volakis, otherwise known as "Cutthroat Bitch" (Anne Dudek), was fired at the end of the episode.

House's Diagnostic Medicine team:

Dr. Lawrence Kutner (Kal Penn) � His specialty is rehabilitative and sports medicine. He is the most enthusiastic of all the potential fellows, but his enthusiasm could be dangerous. A radical thinker, he is the only one who doesn't think House's crazy moves aren't crazy enough.

Dr. Chris Taub (Peter Jacobson) � His specialty is plastic surgery. He is both shallow and inciteful. Taub left a successful practice for unknown reasons, which only made House more determined to figure out why.

Thirteen (Olivia Wilde) � Her specialty is internal medicine. She's a competent young doctor who plays her cards extremely close to the vest. She is an enigma wrapped in a riddle � and House loves a good mystery.

Dr. Eric Foreman (Omar Epps) � Neurologist who quit at the end of last season because he didn't want to end up like Dr. House. But after he's fired from his next job and no other hospital will hire him because of his "House-like" reputation, Hospital Administrator Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) placed him back on the diagnostic team to watch over the brilliant but unpredictable House.

HOUSE ranks as FOX's No. 1 program across the majority of key demos, including Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34 and Total Viewers; ranks as the No. 2 regular primetime program among Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34 and Teens; ranks No. 1 in its Tuesday 9:00 PM time period among all key demos; is the season's only Top 5 returning drama to post year-to-year gains among Adults 18-49 (up 18% versus last year's comparable telecasts); and is the only program to rank among the season's Top 5 primetime programs across Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34 and Teens.

Emmy Award-winning HOUSE is from Heel and Toe Films, Shore Z Productions and Bad Hat Harry Productions in association with Universal Media Studios. Katie Jacobs, David Shore, Paul Attanasio, Bryan Singer, Russel Friend, Garrett Lerner and Thomas L. Moran are executive producers.
