Just how much money is Simon Cowell making right now? Let’s just say that thanks to all of the international licensing deals he is making with “The X Factor,” he likely sleeping on a bed made of gold bars.
The show is already a smash hit in Britain, fares well in Australia and America, and of course has a few more installments all around the world that pull in a decent chunk of change as well. With that in mind, the newest version of the show seems to be heading to Israel, where there is already a version of the rival singing show in “The Voice.” The show is getting set to be produced, and they now reportedly have a host in Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli.
Bar has been getting more into the television industry as of late, having been featured in a particularly notable Super Bowl commercial for GoDaddy alongside Jesse Heiman. There is a panel of judges also being assembled, but not with personalities that most Americans audiences would recognize.
While Rafaeli does prepare for her gig overseas, the American version of the show is also slowly and surely getting its own panel together for the new year. Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio have joined the American version of the show, whereas Sharon Osbourne has also signed up for the series in the United Kingdom to replace the recently departed judge Tulisa Contostavlos.
What do you think about Bar getting booked as a host for the Israeli version of the show, and do you almost wish that she could have an opportunity to host a show on a larger scale?
