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."

These talent shows are getting ridiculous.... all they are concerned about is the hosts and judges........ and not the contestants that we tune in to see!

I won't watch if she is on it. The Kardashian's are white trash. Period. How desperate are you?

I will not watch this show if she is on it. Kardashian's are white trash period. How desperate is Simon anyway? I liked that show before but absolutely will not watch it if this happens.

Throwback kid    

If they do give Chewbacca I mean Khloe the job will she speak with an adult voice or will she talk in her Kardashian baby voice?

Well we know X factor will be cancelled soon.... They are more desperate and THIRSTY than Oprah. Hiring someone with NO NO NO talent in anything to host a music talent show. WOW! I feel so sorry and sad by the entertainment business.

Seriously? So, being a fame whore w/no talent is all you need to become a judge? Wow. What in the hell is wrong w/this world?

Someone please tell me why anyone insists on hiring these losers, whose only talent is porn for anything? I don't watch this show anyway, and I wouldn't now for sure! Stop with these Kardashians already they are sickening!

This has to be a joke or a stunt. Do they actually think that putting one of the most hated family on TV members would actually help them? Especially this she-beast

She's definitely the most tolerable one out of them all. I'll still be tuning in.

Seems all these shows want is controversial judges and hosts. I guess they know people are getting tired of them.

NO!!!! HELL NO! I wish people would stop encouraging the Kardashians. They are no-talent, attention hungry skanks that talk like they have brain damage. I love X Factor but I will not be watching if they hire her. Ridiculous.

OH brother now Simon is getting desperate I was gonna give him a chance but not if this takes place.. ROCK ON IDOL. NOt even sure how this would take place as the K's are part of Ryan Seacrest & E etc.. & this is the opposite sounds more like a K ploy to keep there name out there that everyone is interested in them.. ugh

Another reason not to watch this show. What gives her the authority on talent?
