'House' Episode Preview and Spoilers
The real thing or a big con artist?

That's the question viewers will face tonight when they tune in to FOX's House.  According to the network, House (Hugh Laurie) and the remaining five candidates try to diagnose a magician whose heart failed during an underwater escape act.  As the five doctors are busy figuring out the magician's illness, House attempts to disprove the magician, suspecting the man is faking his ailments in order to cover up the fact that it was his act, and not his heart, that failed.

Aside from the case, House subjects the five doctors to an interesting challenge involving Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), with the winner sure to gain a great advantage over the others.  Want to know more about the challenge and the episode?  Read on for spoilers.

Spoiler TV reports that tonight's episode, called “You Don't Want to Know,” of House will also have the good doctor suspecting one of his candidates of having an undisclosed illness.  The candidate is none other than “Thirteen (Olivia Wilde).”  Upon seeing her hands shaking, House confronts her, but she denies being sick.  Attempting to prove his suspicions correct, House snoops through Thirteen's wallet.  She eventually admits that her mother died of a genetic disease and that she has a 50% percent chance of developing it.  However, she has not taken the test to see if she has the disease or not because she simply doesn't want to know.

As for the challenge, Spoiler TV says that House pits the team against each other and tells them that whoever gets the thong that Cuddy is wearing will be immune from elimination and will be able to nominate two other candidates to be placed on the chopping block.  Who wins the challenge? Cole (Edi Gathegi) does, although viewers will have to tune in tonight to find out how he manages to pull of the task.

Guest stars on tonight's House include Steve Valentine (Crossing Jordan) as Flynn and Noelle Drake (The Playbook) as Ilana.

Catch House at 9/8c on FOX.
