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."

i was going to check this show out, until I heard a Kardashian might be on it. If that happens, then no f'n way am I watching. Let this disgusting family whore themselves out on another network. I guess I'll be watching The Voice.

Down arrow me all you like but I think Khloe will be a great addition to the show. I just hope she uses all of her personality and doesn't hold back. Give her a chance. She's going to make us LOL.

Hilarious that a supposed show about determining 'talent' would be hosted by someone completely lacking any whatsoever herself.
