Khloe is Simon Cowell’s number one choice to host the new season of ‘The X Factor’ and momager Kris couldn’t be happier. She knows this would elevate Khloe’s visibility worldwide and make her an even bigger star than she already is.
Kris Jenner has been pushing for Khloe Kardashian to be the host of the new season of The X Factor since day one. A friend of the Kardashian family tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Kris is over the moon that Khloe is the front-runner to host The X Factor. She knows that Khloe has what it takes and is just thrilled.” HollywoodLife.com has all the EXCLUSIVE details about how Kris feels about Khloe’s potential new job.
“It was Kris’ idea in the first place to have Khloe audition to be a host on The X Factor, ” the friend said. “Khloe has always wanted to be a talk-show host and Kris thinks that hosting The X Factor would be the perfect platform.”
As we’ve previously reported, Khloe and Kris were even thinking about co-hosting a talk-show together. Kris thinks Khloe has amazing interviewing skills and she can get plenty of experience as a host on The X Factor.
“Kris knows that if Khloe gets the job, her popularity will burst and she will become a bigger name than she already is,” the friend said.” “Kris is also ecstatic because this would mean that Khloe and the rest of the Kardashians would get to hob nob with all the big stars like Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell and all the other famous people who come on the show. And most importantly, Kris wants to include all the behind-the-scenes footage on a spin-off reality show about Khloe’s glamorous life!”
Sources connected to the show tell TMZ that “Khloe is definitely #1 among the women who tried out and is generally considered the best in the entire pack of host wannabes. Khloe did a screen test that went over well.”
According to the report, Simon believes Khloe makes the most sense in terms of audience draw, since they’ve already invested heavily in Britney and Demi to attract young viewers.
The host won’t appear on the show until next month when it goes live and as we’ve previously reported, Simon wants one male and one female host to share hosting duties. We wonder who’s on the list with Khloe!
