Khloe Kardashian


To Host 'X Factor'

9/7/2012 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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."

with the ethics of an honest competition.

Who Knew    

Smells like Ryan Seacrest is trying to keep that fame whoring skank family's name relevant, Just read that the porn star had an appearance at the Charlotte NC, club opening and only 50 people showed up.

I'm actually rooting for Khloe K to be the host. I much rather her than her idiot sister.

What a joke...A woman that has zero talent and her only claim to fame is she is the sister of Kim Kartrashain who became famous because of a porn tape and the daughter of a woman who has no class and cheated on her husband...The whole family is trash...

We're talking about the same Kloe that married the first guy that took her out on a date? And did it in record time before the drugs wore off? Come on......

Hope Simon reads these comments before making his final choice = what a bad move. Radar Online has the story about Kimmy and her hosting an after convention party in Charlotte, NC where less than 50 people showed up. Where's that story TMZ?
