"X Factor"

Three Finalists for

TWO Hosting Spots

9/19/2012 5:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details


There are 3 candidates still standing for the coveted "X Factor" hosting gig -- Khloe Kardashian, Mario Lopez, and Corbin Bleu -- but only 2 of them will be chosen.

Sources connected to the production tell us the show has decided to go with co-hosts, and Khloe remains Simon Cowell's top pick.

Earlier today, we were told there would only be one host, but it turns out there will be TWO ... and Mario Lopez is indeed the likely choice to share the stage with Khloe. Our bad.

We're told "High School Musical" grad Corbin is waiting in the wings if negotiations fall thru with Mario or Khloe.

As we reported ... E! is worried "X Factor" might take away from Khloe's time on its reality shows.

Stay tuned ...

Sorry if this is a double post, my computer crashed - I agree with everyone saying if a Kartrashian is on it, I'm out....too bad, too, because Simon knows how to spot talent. All I can figure out with him considering a fame whore from a family of fame whores - keep or drop the 'fame' to your liking - is he's drinking the Seacrest koolaid. Step away from the evil "E" channel effect, Simon!

I agree with other posters - as much as I have enjoyed the XF, if a Kartrashian is on it, I'm out. From that mess of glorified w####s to Honey whatever the hell it is, as long as we allow dysfunction to be rewarded, it will continue. My son has asked more than once, when seeing someone on tv, "But WHY are they on tv?" - meaning, what is the talent of said person? That's when I say I have no idea, and we turn the channel.

Why would you pick a talentless pig to host a talent show?

I think it will be funny if Khloe gets the job, it will really piss kimmie kakes off, so good luck Khloe!
I haven't watched X Factor this season bc I'm already watching something else at that time so it really doesn't matter to me.
If you ppl don't like Khloe, don't sweat it, just don't watch the dam show, no need to get all upset over it, geeze..what cry babies!

she has the same experience as ryan seacrest, nick cannon and howard stern. she hosted her own radio show. i vote for khloe:) x-factor is a reality show and they can't factor khloe's reality show into it? how is that? because she works for ryan and he's american idol?

Please, no Kardashian! We get more than enough of that disgusting family. Mario Lopez has experience hosting. I'm not going to tune in to watch another talentless Kardashian.

If Khloe get the job, she will find a way to bring her whole damn family on the show. NO. Just pick Corbin. Sick of Mario.

ABK- Anybody But Khloe. She just doesn't have a pleasant way of speaking and has no stage presence. Those Kardashians can't even play thenselves convincingly on their scripted pseudoreality shows. Mario Lopez and Corbin Bleu would do fine. They have acting experience and won't grate on people the way Khloe will. If she's serious about radio and tv work, she should go to school and get some real training.

Chloe is a bore. She has no energy. Mario is perfect to host all by himself. Secrest out!
