Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez will join the payroll of "X Factor" -- TMZ has learned, Khloe and Mario will be the new co-hosts of the show.

We're told the final, tiny finishing touches are being put on their deals, but the announcement will be made some time this week.

We're told the duo's salaries will add millions on top of an already enormous talent budget ... with Britney Spears in the lead at $15 mil.

Khloe and Mario will debut in November.

A great "Laurel & Hardy" type pick : A big fat ass female Linebacker type and a skinny short guy.

Wow , it's going to be funny if they spend a ton on "talent" & the show totally flops. Why would you tune in to see either of these "celebs"?

I would watch Mario, but never Mario. Hope they do it on different nights, so I can at least watch teh program when she is not on. Gross. The TV Company must be desparate.

The only thing that will save X Factor is if Simon Cowell has another mental breakdown, but this time live on stage.

X Factor is turning into a bad sitcom about judges trying to put on a talent show. The contestants are like extras they you don't see or notice much. The extras don't really perform, they're just there to provide drama "my life has been so tough but X Factor is going to change that"

Picking Khloe Kardashian as a judge proves Simon has indeed had another mental breakdown. Thats like casting 5'9" Michael "Mr Mom" Keaton as Batman.

I fail to see what talent experience Khloe and Mario have. Mario acted as a teen but aside from that don't see the reasoning behind these two choices. They both haven't been in the talent or music industry.

Awesome     

I don't watch the show so this effects me none. Glad to see her actually doing something tho and not just screwing every Tom, Dick and Harry like her sister. Some people actually want to do something besides be a slut.

Seems like the cameras are already on the judges more than the stage. When Khloe is on and other Trashians in the audience you'll only hear the performances, like background music.

I enjoyed watching X Factor, now i'll stop JUST because of Khloe Kardashian. Enough is enough!

why not have two people with no talent and the charisma/likability of AIDS host X-Factor? I'm not sure I see the problem..
