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."

That is sad to know - she has no talent other than being a fame whore, so how can she judge other talent?

Im no kartrashian fan but she cant be worse than the Aussie robot that did it last year. I dont want to hear Brittany hick trash stammer for words after her helpers scrubbed her camel toe clean for one night.

Honestly, I like Khloe K! She's made a fine life being the fugliest Kardashian. She has a husband. She seems like the healthiest one. Al the Kards are workers, which I like.
This may be a good move for X F, because the Kards have a lot of fans. That's the demo they are going for.
I'll tune in and watch and see how KK does.

OH BARF!!!!!!!!!!! That would guarantee I'm not watching X-Factor. You can't tell me she's the best of the pack of wannabes? Anybody with a 3rd grade education would be better than her.

X-Factor execs must really want this to be the last season.

I won't watch, I will not watch, no how, no way if a Kartrashian is on that show.
