If Simon Cowell is going for looks over talent, he's on the right track.
With Britney Spears negotiations reportedly still ongoing, sources now say The X Factor is considering Stacy Keibler for a role on its upcoming second season. In what capacity? It's unclear, although co-host seems most likely.
An insider cites Keibler's "lack of experience in the music business" as a drawback for making this former WWE Diva a judge, but adds that the beauty "looks fantastic and has bags of charisma." Would this be enough to cast her as emcee?
She would seemingly fit Cowell's criteria, as Simon told reporters a couple weeks ago: “I always wanted a boy and a girl to host the show. And I like hosts who don’t kind of have a hosting background... it’s a different kind of dynamic.”
Darren Criss of Glee was supposedly offered the hosting gig earlier this month but could not fit it into his schedule.
