Khloe Kardashian

FRONT-RUNNER

To Host 'X Factor'

EXCLUSIVE

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."

Oh and where's the story about Kanye refusing to attend the MTV Awards because Kimmy coudln't go = that was a Daily Mail exclusive. No one cared, or missed Kimye. TMZ needs to get with it.

Yay, go Khole. She would beat out Stacy K and the other girl. She did great on the radio shows...but what about her following her man on the road for basketball. Oh well, she is strong woman and knows how to live her life.

Read between the lines. Kardashian ratings are going down big time so Mr. Ryan Seacrest (E! Producers) asks his buddy Simon to help him out to promote the Kardashians by putting Klhoe on X-Factor. Sorry Simon, but your arrogance will once again ruin your image and show the same way you ruined Idol.

Oh good lord, can't we EVER get away from these people. I don't watch these "talent" shows but just the mere thought of yet ANOTHER Kardashian on any kind of tv show makes me physically ill.

X Factor is toast. I've said I'll never watch a Kardashion, and I'm a man of my word. Should have Kept Paula, and brought in Britney. Damn Simon!

The K's are on their way to burning out. TMZ only reports good things about them or shows the good pics. Every other site shows the trash they are.
Example is last night less than 50 people showed up for her VMA "after-party". and they show pics of her sitting there in a DUMPY club with a couple people.
TMZ refuses to say or show anything bad about her but they jump on everyone else.
Did TMZ report that? nooooo
Did TMZ show the cut-out dress that looked awful? noooo

People still watch these awful karaoke shows?
I have no idea why anybody would want to see Khloe Kardashian on anything. The daughter of Kris Jenner and OJ Simpson shouldn't be allowed on TV.

If she gets the job as a host I will not be watching am fed up of this parasite, disgusting family being pushed down our throats. If she gets the job all of them will be on there every week and make the show about them. What has she done to even have a chance to audition? She and her family are NOT CELEBRITIES she and her family are only in the public eye because of one of them making and leaking a disgusting sex-tape of themselves and putting selling it to a porn company. She doesnt even have a personally all she does is swear and act like a dumbass and her voice is so annoying she and has retarded sisters talk in this baby, nostril voice. Perhaps Simon should give the job to someone who actually has experience and is likeable.

This family better figure out something to do outside of the entertainment industry pretty soon. There is so much contempt for the gypsies, and if Simon, little Ryan or other producer of any show chooses to force one of the klan upon America, expect sh*tty ratings.
