It's official ... Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez will be the new co-hosts of "X Factor" ... TMZ has confirmed with sources connected to the show.

We broke the story ... Khloe and Mario had been thiiiiiiis close to a deal for months ... but now we've confirmed they've both signed on the dotted line ... it's a done deal.

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

K&M are expected to debut on the show in November.

I would bet money,that Kim has paid informers, who alert her to Reggies constant whereabouts . How else could she create her "little dramas" and "coincidences"??

How can Khlohe feel good about the fact she was handed this job to boost ratings based on the fact she's the spawn of the most hated woman in America? Simon sure as hell didn't hire her based on talent or likeability. Simon Cowell is an obnoxious, limey, d00sh.

Really??? Don't we have enough with their "no talent" reality show? Khloe seriously? I prefer The Voice and watch that anytime over the XFactor. A bunch of NO talents judging like the Brittany Bitch... so why not add another idiot to the show! Downhill from here...

Interesting! I wonder why E let her sign on? Perhaps they know after this bout of filming, it's time to call it a wrap on those pathetic shows? If this puts Kim in the unemployment line, then I'm all for it!

IMO -- there is absolutely NOTHING likable about Khloe. I've watched every single episode of KUWTK more than once and my lasting impression of her is -- she's a nasty, mean-spirited, disrespectful, foul-mouthed bullying bitch. She instigates others (mostly her impressionable younger sisters and their friends) to join in her plots to make other family members miserable -- mostly her own mother. She accuses other family members of trying to manipulate situations to be all about them in her own attempt to make it all about herself. She's a time bomb waiting to explode and to put her on LIVE television is just plain irresponsible and stupid. Don't even get me started on the way she constantly plays with her hair -- just fill her air-time with fingernails on a chalk board and be done with it. Other than that ...

I am OUT...when KK came in...I have been a faithful fan of Simon's talent shows..followed to Xfactor.
But, please. give the contestants increased reward...rather than the likes of KK...she has nothing at all to offer.
I am done...until Simon takes the spotlight off
the host and judges. Seeing Khloe turned me OFF
