Exclusive: Cash Cab Host Ben Bailey Lands New NBC Game Show Gig
Ben Bailey, the Emmy-winning host behind Discovery Channel's hit Cash Cab, is driving over to primetime. NBC has tapped Bailey to host Who's Still Standing? — the network's new trivia game show.
Based on the Israeli series Still Standing, the new game show centers on contestants who battle each other in a series of comedic challenges. If a contestant answers incorrectly, they're dropped through trapped doors. The final player standing has a chance at winning $1 million.
"I am really psyched to be hosting this new show Who's Still Standing? because it's totally unlike any other show," Bailey says. "It's got great trivia, it's got big money prizes, and it's got real action and on top of all that, I don't have to deal with driving in any traffic."
NBC alternative programming executive vice president Paul Telegdy calls Bailey "clever, entertaining and a huge authority in the trivia world."
Bailey won a Daytime Emmy for outstanding game show host, and recently received another nomination. He also recently starred in the Comedy Central special Road Rage. His guest TV appearances include Law & Order: SVU and Mad TV.
