Khloe Kardashian

FRONT-RUNNER

To Host 'X Factor'

Khloe Kardashian may be doing her part to jump start the economy ... because TMZ has learned she's the front-runner to become the "X Factor" host and we're told the suits want it to happen.

Sources intimately connected to the show tell TMZ ... Khloe is definitely #1 among the women who tried out and is generally considered the best in the entire pack of host wannabes.

Khloe did a screen test that went over well. The suits -- including Simon Cowell (who has probably never worn a suit) -- believe Khloe makes the most sense in terms of audience draw, since they've already invested heavily in Britney Spears and Demi Lovato to attract young viewers.

Producers will make a decision soon. The host won't appear until the live shows air, and that begins next month. 

As for the odds ... as one well-connected source tells us, "There's at least an 85% chance she'll get the job."

Heads up Simon. Anything Kardashian appears means I will not watch. Period. If she or any siblings appear, I won't watch an episode. They are garbage.

Why on earth would they want her? They must not want people to watch the show. She's not host material and has one of the absolute WORST speaking voices!

Whome?    

This show is over if they pick her. Britney and Lavato are not enough? "Jump the shark" in season 2. Damn, Simon. You was the man, homie.

I think that she should Host TMZ since Harvey has his head up her Mamas A$$ and pimps them every chance that he can

Khloe will do a great job. All you haters are just mad cause you guys are broke and probably not good looking. Work on your self-esteem people.
