Khloe Kardashian is reportedly on the short list of candidates to host Fox’s “The X Factor” Season 2.
According to TMZ, producers have gotten the list of names down to six. However, Kardashian, and everybody else on the list, must do a screen test audition.
Kardashian’s name is just the latest to be thrown around for “The X Factor” hosting gig. Season 1 was hosted by Steve Jones,but he got the axe along with judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger after the season wrapped. Abdul and Scherzinger were replaced by Britney Spears and Demi Lovato. Producer and judge Simon Cowell said he wanted to replace Jones with two people, a male and female.
In July 2012, E! Online reported Cowell was looking at Mario Lopez, Erin Andrews and other entertainers to possibly serve as host. Former WWE wrestler Stacy Keibler has also been rumored for the hosting gig.
“The X Factor” returns to Fox on Wed., Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. ET.
