TMZ announced on Tuesday that Khloè Kardashian and Mario Lopez will be the new hosts of the current “X Factor” season. Simon Cowell selected the Kardashian sister and the Latin sex symbol because they have the spunky personality the British producer needed for his show.
Simon Cowell was impressed by Khloè Kardashian’s powerful personality ever since the two met during selections for the new “X Factor” season. After several discussions, the British producer and the sexy brunette agreed to sign a new deal for the current season of the talent show. Cowell chose Mario Lopez as a co-host for Khloè because he thinks the two have a great sense of humor and they can enliven the spirit of the show.
Based on the declaration of an unnamed source, an official statement will be published later this week to provide more pieces of information in relation to the changes that will be enacted. This is not the first modification that was performed on the show’s format. Britney Spears and Demi Lovato have also been selected to replace the former judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul.
The media was expecting Simon Cowell to choose Khloè Kardashian due to information provided by an anonymous source. The insider told the press that the British producer got along very well with the 28-year-old reality TV star and he decided to bring her on the show. The rumor was confirmed by Simon, himself, during a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres. He told the comedienne that he was looking for two co-hosts with a powerful chemistry and Khloè might just be one of them.
Cowell declared back then that many celebrities have been screen tested for the position. He was looking for a less experienced person to host the show and Khloè with her genuine personality seemed to be the right choice. In his opinion, less experienced hosts can make the show look more dynamic through the natural jokes they make and their lively spirit. Fox made no comment in relation to the news so far.
