Simon Cowell has revealed to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres that reality star Khloe Kardashian, was one of many people who had auditioned to host the popular TV show, and she had impressed him.
“It could be a Kardashian. I think that would work,” he said, he also added that “we have to find people who have a great chemistry, but Khloe is definitely up there in running.” Cowell speaking on Tuesday at “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” said.
Khloe Kardashian rose to fame in the reality show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ and its spin offs, ‘Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami’ , ‘Kourtney and Khloe take New York and ‘Khloe and Lamar’ but she is often overshadowed by her more outgoing sister, Kim who has always been in the news, and recently more because of her relationship with rapper Kanye West. Khloe is married to basketball player Lamar Odom and was recently in the news over the couple’s efforts to have a baby.
Cowell had fired the original host of The X Factor, British TV personality Steve Jones in January, along with judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, after a disappointing first season on U.S. television. The judges were replaced with pop star, Britney Spears and former Disney Channel singer Demi Loavto for the second season starting soon.
Simon has said he would like two hosts, preferably with little experience to take the helm when the singing contest starts its live broadcasts in October.
