KHLOE Kardashian and Mario Lopez have finally be confirmed as the co-hosts of X Factor USA.
Khloe took to her website Monday to announce the news, and admitted she’s nervous about making her debut on the show.
“I’m sure you’ve been hearing the rumors and I’m SO excited that I can finally confirm the news — I am joining The X Factor as co-host with Mario Lopez,” she wrote.
“I’m a huge fan of the show so I literally fell over in my chair when I heard that I was being considered for the role. The show already has such an incredible panel of judges and it is truly an honour to have been given this opportunity to work with them.
“I’m thrilled, overjoyed and of course a little nervous about this new step in my career, and I can’t wait to get started. Wish me luck.”
Mario took to his Twitter, saying, “Alright guys, it’s official… I’ll be hosting @TheXFactorUSA! Looking forward to working with @SimonCowell and the rest of the amazing team.”
Pre-taped auditions for the current series of the reality TV show have been airing for several weeks on FOX putting Simon Cowell under pressure to find presenters ahead of the first live show next month.
Recent reports claimed Khloe and Lamar have already come to blows.
“The show hasn’t even started taping yet and the knives are out!” a source said.
“Mario thinks Khloe is an airhead, and she thinks he’s a musclebound stuffed shirt.
“They’re already vying for the spotlight, and the real competition is going to be which one will be the bigger pain in the butt for X Factor brass when production starts.
“They both demanded exactly the same amount of air time, a completely even distribution of promotional commitments, the same dressing room trailers and the same down-to-the-penny wardrobe, hair and makeup budgets.
“Mario even tried to get approval of Khloe’s wardrobe because he’s terrified her cleavage is going to detract from his muscles!”
“Khloe is hoping this gig could lead to a job on a show like The View or even her own series.
“Meanwhile, Mario is all about business. Plus, he always has to be the bigger star, so it infuriates him to have an equal role with someone as popular as Khloe.
“Mario and Khloe each feel they’ll be the new name draw for ‘X Factor’ fans – and for the producers, the headaches have just begun.”
