Seems like there’s a lot of hosting gigs up for grabs this fall and “The X Factor” still has yet to make a commitment, even to Khloe Kardashian. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star is pitching hard for the job, but do the producers think she has it?
Khloe Kardashian has been looking for something to do to get out of the curvaceous shadow of her more famous sister, Kim Kardashian. She’s always been second fiddle on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” so hosting “The X Factor” would give her the career boost she wants to become a talent-show star. But does she have the right non-confrontational, let’s say bland, personality to host a reality show competition?
“I’m a big fan of ‘The X Factor,’” Khloe Kardashian told E! News when she was first considered for the hosting gig. ”I’ve always wanted to do hosting or talk-show hosting, so it’s definitely something that I would love to do and would be honored to do,” she added. “To be on such a huge show like that with those judges, I would have so much fun doing that.” So far so good, Khloe. Your sound bites are complimentary without really saying anything.
But would Khloe be a match for Simon Cowell’s confrontational style? “I love Simon,” she said. “I think he’s amazing. I love personalities like that, because I’m someone who is very straightforward, and I tell it like it is. That’s what he’s doing. He just doesn’t want to blow smoke up people’s asses.” Whoa there Khloe, you won’t get to tell it like it is to the contestants. You’just have to pat them on the shoulder when they cry.
Khloe would still have to beat out quite a few contenders for “The X Factor” host crown. Stacy Keibler, Kelly Osbourne, Mario Lopez, BET host Terrence J, sportscaster Erin Andrews and radio personality Mike Catherwood are all rumored to be in pursuit of the job. What do you think? Does Khloe have the personality to hold her own with Simon, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato? Do you think she’s just the right kind of Ryan Seacret bland to pull it off?
