She has had her chance on Dancing With The Stars, but could Stacy Keibler be headed to The X Factor on FOX? The series is reportedly still on the hunt for new judges and hosts, after the firing of Nicole Scherzinger, Paula Abdul, and Steve Jones. Rumors now claim that the blonde beauty is in talks with Simon Cowell and the show. Read on for the scoop!
Recent reports claim that while Britney Spears is in talks with The X Factor, Stacy Keibler is as well. However, we think that Stacy is most likely chatting about a possible hosting gig, instead of a judging gig. Why? An insider who claims Keibler is chatting with Simon Cowell and the show, says that Stacy’s “lack of experience in the music business” may deter her from getting offered a spot on the judging panel, but since she “looks fantastic and has bags of charisma,” she may be considered for a hosting position.
Simon Cowell himself admitted that he wanted two hosts for the show’s second season, telling reporters recently: “I always wanted a boy and a girl to host the show. And I like hosts who don’t kind of have a hosting background… it’s a different kind of dynamic.” That would make Stacy Keibler the perfect candidate for the hosting gig, but who would make a good co-host for her?
Meanwhile, rumor has it that Britney Spears was offered $10 million for a judging spot in season two, but the troubled star reportedly wants more money than that to do it. No official announcements have been made yet about the judging panel or hosting positions for The X Factor, and Simon Cowell wants to keep it a surprise as long as possible.
Do you think Britney Spears would make a good fit as a judge on The X Factor? Something tells us that she may deter people from watching more than encourage it. What about Stacy Keibler? Would she make a good host? Sound off below and tell us what you think!
