Khloe Kardashian is reportedly on the verge of landing a job that involves something other than being a Kardashian.
According to TMZ, she’s the leading candidate to take over hosting duties on “The X Factor” this season. The FOX talent competition has been operating without a host through its audition rounds but needs one for the live shows that will begin in October. A source tells the site there’s “at least an 85 percent chance” Kardashian will get the job.
Since dumping Steve Jones after its first season, “The X Factor” and creator/judge Simon Cowell have embarked on a drawn-out search for a new host — or hosts, as Cowell has at times expressed a preference for co-hosts.
In addition to Kardashian, Stacy Keibler, Mario Lopez and Mike Catherwood have been among the people reportedly in the mix as possible hosts. The new season kicks off Wednesday (Sept. 12) on FOX, with new judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato joining Cowell and L.A. Reid.
What do you think — would Khloe make a good host, and would you like to see more than one person get the job?
