NBC Preys On More Game Show Contestant Fears With 'Who's Still Standing?' Exclusive (VIDEO)

Fresh off the successful return of "Fear Factor," NBC is launching another new show that's causing anxiety. "Who's Still Standing?" may not have spiders or flaming cars speeding toward contestants, but it's hardly just a trivia game show.

Based on a hit Israeli show called "Still Standing," the U.S. version is hosted by Ben Bailey, the hilarious Emmy-winning "Cash Cab" trivia master. "Who's Still Standing?" takes trivia to a whole new level, with a $1 million prize up for grabs for those who get the questions right ... and a trick floor that opens for contestants who get them wrong to fall through. Yes, it's a little scary.

No, they're not dropped into a pit of snakes, but as this exclusive sneak peek shows, we don't really know where they go. That's a lot harsher than hearing, "You are the weakest link," or getting whammied -- welcome to extreme trivia, people.

The show premieres next week (Mon., Dec. 19, 8 p.m. ET on NBC), and will have new holiday-themed episodes each night through Thurs., Dec. 22. It'll then finish off its first season run in the Monday night timeslot, from Dec. 26 through Jan. 30.
