While there were several candidates, one of the patients that arguably stood out amongst the rest was Omar Thomas, who reached the finish line of his indoor rock-climbing exercise, ringing the bell like a champ, only to fall moments later, resulting in a nasty injury. He could not remember what happened at the hospital and didn't even recall ever having rung the bell. It turns out Thomas had experienced a neurological issue that caused the fall, and luckily he was able to receive treatment. While his time on the show may have been considered brief, Thomas's time at the Gaffney Chicago Medical Center has piqued the fans' curiosity, so much so they may be wondering who played the character.
