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."

Simon is a bright guy - I'm surprised he'd even consider a Kardashian which will turn off more than half the viewers. There are a lot of people Simon who boycott everything Kardashian, wise up.

i thought the show was about discovering new talent. is xfactor just a show that is about the judges. simon is showing that the show is not really about discovering new talent, just antics from judges. no i will not watch, sick of the kardashian people.

I would not watch and if I had kids, I would definitely not let my kids watch the show if one of the Kardashian whores are on it. I have the Kardashian reality shows blacked out on my cable box because they are overpaid trash that became famous because Kim decided to drop her panties and spread her legs on videotape. Just recently, mom/manager Kris Jenner was accused of being caught in bed with another man by Bruce. Most kids have smartphones and/or tablet PCs nowdays. What is to stop them from taking out their smartphone or tablet PC and doing a Google search for Kardashian and the Kim Kardashian sextape comes up on the screen after they click on a link? The Kardashians are not family friendly material and this is just a marketing ploy for the Kardashians to push their slumping line of clothes with free advertising courtesy of Fox and Simon Cowell. Khloe will wear one Kardashian outfit/dress/etc. a week on the X Factor USA to promote the line. I won't be watching or taping the X Factor to watch later if this whore is hosting. Vanna White would be a better host than her.

NOooooo! Enough already. On to Honey Boo Boo and her mother who is driving Kris Jenner crazy for stealing her thunder. Too funny.

Actually on second thought TMZ is so far up Kris Jenner's ass I am wondering if this story is even true.
