Faced with new competition from The Voice and in need of a ratings splash, The X Factor is reportedly close to giving control of its stage over to a Kardashian.
Indeed, not only is Khloe a candidate, TMZ confirms from a previous rumor, she's the competition's front-runner for female hosting duties!
The X Factor is expected to name one female and one male host, and sources say Khloe's recent screen test impressed Simon Cowell and other producers.
Along with new judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato, show insiders believe Kardashian would help lure in fresh, young viewers. One person in the know tells TMZ "there's at least an 85% chance" Khloe is named co-host.
A decision is needed in the near future, as The X Factor will need hosts in place when it goes live next month. (Season 2 premieres over two nights, September 12 and 13, next week.)
