From TMZ:

Khloe Kardashian may be doing her part to jump start the economy … because TMZ has learned she’s the front-runner to become the “X Factor” host and we’re told the suits want it to happen.

Sources intimately connected to the show tell TMZ … Khloe is definitely #1 among the women who tried out and is generally considered the best in the entire pack of host wannabes.

Khloe did a screen test that went over well. The suits — including Simon Cowell (who has probably never worn a suit) — believe Khloe makes the most sense in terms of audience draw, since they’ve already invested heavily in Britney Spears and Demi Lovato to attract young viewers.

Producers will make a decision soon. The host won’t appear until the live shows air, and that begins next month.

Can I see this happening? Absolutely. However, guys, just because we’re all pretty much unanimously in agreement over the fact that Khloe Kardashian is the best Kardashian, she’s still a Kardashian. And I think the last thing any Kardashian needs is more exposure on television. Or rather, the last thing anyone who’s not a Kardashian needs is more Kardashian exposure on television. And I’m serious—I’m kind of torn over this. I like Khloe, and I think she might actually be an OK kind of girl, but rooting for her to take the slot as host on X-Factor (which is, granted, a show I don’t even watch) is kind of like asking for punishment.

Are you a glutton for punishment, too?

  • Barf, is my first reaction, I would rather see someone who has paid their dues in show biz get the job but this show is aimed at the 12 year old crowd so what does it matter?

  • I don’t think Simon has lost his mind yet. Exactly what talent does Khloe have? A last name of Kardashian counts for zero. Once people watched once to see the train wreck, they’ll realize the shoe has jumped the shark.
