If Simon Cowell has any say in it Khloe Kardashian could be the new host for the US version of the “X Factor”. It has been widely disputed who will be the next host to replace ex “X Factor” host Steve Jones. Now it looks like we may have found our answer — a Kardashian!
The younger sister of Kim, is said to have been signed off by Cowell, telling talk show host Ellen DeGeneres that she was one of many that he had discussed to take over the responsibility of hosting “X Factor”. However, he said it was Khloe that surprised him in the audition room, saying, “It could be a Kardashian. I think that would work. We have to find people who have a great chemistry, but Khloe is definitely up there in running.”
After the first season of “X Factor” dipped in the ratings and advertisers lost millions of dollars, Simon decided to start fresh and fired host Steve Jones along with judges Paula Abdul, and Nicole Scherzinger. Since then Disney star Demi Lovato signed on and of course, Britney Spears — a personality that everyone is looking forward to see.
A source told TMZ today, “There’s at least an 85% chance she’ll get the job.” Whoever the men in suits pick won’t appear until the live episodes are ready to air, which gives executives at the X Factor a full month to decide whether or not they want to subject the world to more Kardashian screen time.
Do you think Khloe Kardashian is a good choice to host “X Factor”?
