Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez to join X Factor
Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez will join X Factor.
TMZ reported Tuesday that both Kardashian, 28, and Lopez, 38, will be co-hosts on the reality competition this season, with the official announcement expected later this week; a source confirms the deal to Us Weekly.
An X Factor source told Us Lamar Odom's love had impressed Cowell and other FOX network executives. "Simon liked her spunky personality!" the show source revealed.
"We have screen tested a load of people. . .It could be a Kardashian," Cowell said. "I think that would work. I'm quite a fan of not putting [experienced] hosts on this show. Because I think it's going to give it a different dynamic. So we have to find people who have a great chemistry, but Khloe is definitely up there in running."
