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."

I like X-Factor, but I like The Voice better, so if they're on at the same time, sorry xfactor! As for Khloe, give the girl a break, just because she's Kim's sister doesn't mean she's Kim! Khloe seems to have her shyt together and she comes across real & doesn't seem to lie about shyt.

She will fit in just fine because everyone is either crazy and/or has no talent. What TV execs will do for ratings these days. They know by having khloe there that her family will come too. Then they can have multiple on the show for the price of one. Well it's khloe, for the price of 1 and a half. I'm just sayin

I think it's a great idea. Maybe these reality shows have finally run out of ideas and soon they will all fade away. American Idol is probably on it's last season and now they seem to be doing everything possible to chase viewers away from Xfactor. DWTS is having an 'all star' season because they can't find anyone who wants to be on the show anymore, and Jersey Shore is ending.

Maybe there's hope for television yet.

She is clearly the smartest and most appealing out of the whole clan of these hairy monsters but Simon is reaching on this move. The show is more Pop culture than actual talent..... the decline of Western Civilization as we know it.
