‘The X Factor’ USA: Khloe Kardashian finalist for hosting position

While it would be easy for us to be cynical about Khloe Kardashian possibly being one of the co-hosts on the second season of “The X Factor” — mostly because we’ve been pretty vocal about our cynicism for most things related to the Kardashians — we are rather fond of this idea in theory. Khloe has always been he most outspoken and fun-loving of the three sisters, and her experience both getting along and challenging other people around her could make her a perfect choice to spar alongside Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid when the show hits the live rounds later this year.

According to TMZ, it is now at least official that Khloe is one of the finalists to potentially get the gig. She is set to sit down with producers over the next two weeks to do a screen test along with a limited list of other candidates — and then, producers and Fox will work to select their favorites. After Steve Jones only lasted one season and was promptly fired for struggling to adapt his chat-show experience to a variety format, they obviously want to make sure that they get things right this time around. No candidate is going to be considered for this season without a screen test.

Cowell’s past statements suggest that in a perfect world, he will have both a man and a woman overseeing the show as he likes the chemistry that could be there. Plus, he feels that trying to keep a broadcast entertaining and also on time is really too tough of a job for a single host to do on their own — even if Dermot O’Leary is great at it on the UK series.

Are you on the same page as us when it comes to Khloe as an interesting prospect for this show, or do you want someone who is simply more experienced in the live TV field? To check out some news pertaining to a show’s judge in Demi Lovato, head on over to this link.
