Simon Cowell X Factor Host

Simon has made up his mind! He wants Khloe as the host of season two of ‘The X Factor,’ according to a new report. Read on for all the details.

As we’ve told you before, Khloe Kardashian has been a consistent front-runner for the new hosting job on season two of The X Factor. Well, it appears that Simon Cowell has finally made a decision. He’s approved Khloe for the job!

TMZ reports that Simon has made his choice and that it is now up to FOX to approve Khloe, according to network sources. The report says that Simon has argued that Khloe is a big draw who will complement the hiring of Britney Spears and Demi Lovato as judges to make the show “decidedly younger” than last season. Simon believes that the three women create an “authentic vibe” that none of the other potential hosts were able to accomplish.

According to the report, FOX must now sign off on Simon’s choice, a decision that is expected within a week. One source told the website that it was “highly likely” that the network will approve Khloe!

As we’ve told you before, Simon wants one woman and one man to co-host and a source has told exclusively that she is the first choice for the guy/girl hosting panel, but they need her 100 percent to move forward with their selection for the guy. “They want them both to mesh and have good chemistry…Its Khloe’s job if she wants it,” our source says.

FOX officially says, “No comment.” Our source adds, though, “Simon wants it, Khloe wants it and FOX will make it happen and they should be finalizing the guy choice in the next 7 days, if not tomorrow!”
