There have been a number of names floating around the internet when it comes to hosting possibilities for “The X Factor,” but there is one that has garnered more attention than just about any other strictly from a curiosity standpoint — Khloe Kardashian. What makes her dangerous is that she is a polarizing figure, and there will probably be a few people out there who refuse to watch based solely on who she is, and the people that she is related to. However, what makes her interesting is that she is bold, candid, and could bring a ton of energy to a show that would not focus on her family in any shape or form. Plus, wouldn’t it be interesting to see Khloe suddenly surpass Kim as the Kardashian with the most overall viewers?
In speaking to E! — who of course broadcasts pretty much anything with the Kardashains’ name on it — Khloe did not entirely discount the rumors, and said that this is a gig that she really would want if it was offered to her:
“I’m a big fan of ‘The X Factor’ … I’ve always wanted to do hosting or talk-show hosting, so it’s definitely something that I would love to do and would be honored to do. To be on such a huge show like that with those judges, I would have so much fun doing that.”
There are some interesting connections here between the Kardashians and this show — namely in that Kim is close friends with judge Demi Lovato, and was even a support system for her at times while she was in treatment in the fall of 2010 for some physical and emotional issues. L.A. Reid also executive produced “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” the latest solo album from Kim’s boyfriend Kanye West. While she may be a risky fit given that she has no real hosting experience at all, we’re admittedly intrigued by the idea — plus, what would some of the haters say, given that one of their primary attacks on the family is that they have ‘no talent’? It takes a ton of this very thing to make a show like this work smoothly.
Do you think Khloe would make a good judge, or are you hoping more that this show just avoids anything and everything related to the Kardashians? To check out some other current hosting rumors, be sure to follow the link here.
