Khloe Kardashian in talks for 'The X Factor' hosting gig, report says
Khloe Kardashian is reportedly in the running to host the upcoming season of "The X Factor," which will also feature new judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.
According to E! Online, Kardashian is the frontrunner for the hosting gig. Others in talks for the job were reportedly Mario Lopez, Stacy Keibler and Kelly Osbourne.
An "X Factor" source told the entertainment site that Kevin Jonas, Erin Andrews, Ashley Roberts and "Glee" star Kevin McHale all did screen tests this week.
During a conference call on September 6, executive producer and head judge Simon Cowell said that they should have their host picked within the next week.
"We've screen tested a lot of people... I think we're going to make a decision in about the next seven days," Cowell told Us Weekly. "My gut feeling is we'll probably go with a boy and a girl who haven't had any hosting experience, because I think that might make it more interesting."
Britney Spears and Demi Lovato signed on to be judges on "The X Factor" in May, joining returning judges Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid.
In April, the Kardashian family reportedly signed a $40 million deal with the E! Network to continue their main reality series, "Keeping up with the Kardashians" and its various spin-off shows.
Khloe has been married to NBA player Lamar Odom since September 2009. The pair were married in a private ceremony, but shared the special day with fans with an E! special. The couple recently starred in their own reality show, "Khloe & Lamar," which showcased some of the pair's rough patches.
