Is Khloe Kardashian the New ‘X Factor’ Host?

Apparently ‘American Idol‘ was getting all the fun and the ‘X Factor‘ wanted a piece of the action. While FOX is scrambling to fill the empty judges’ spots left by Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, the folks behind ‘X Factor’ are trying to find a new host to compliment the additions of Britney Spears and Demi Lovato. Guess who’s reportedly the No. 1 pick? Here’s a hint — we don’t think you’ll want to be ‘Keeping Up’ with this candidate?

TMZ reports that Khloe Kardashian is by far the standout in the “entire pack of host wannabes,” and sources close to the decision process claim “there’s at least an 85% chance she’ll get the job.” Hey, as long as Simon Cowell is behind it, which according to the report he is, we’re semi fine with the decision.

In true FOX style, no official decision has yet been made, but this new host won’t even appear until the live showings anyway, which start next month. While it does make sense to have another big name attached to ‘X Factor’ to draw in more of the Kardashian fan base, what will happen to Khloe and ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians‘?

The other ladies, especially Kim and Kris Jenner, all have intensely busy careers and still have time to have their entire lives broadcasted to the entire E! audience. What do you think? Will Khloe accept the job and, if so, will she be able to handle both her ‘X Factor’ and ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ responsibilities? Let us know in the comments below!
