It has been rumoured for some time now that reality television star Khloe Kardashian and former Saved By the Bell actor Mario Lopez would be the new co hosts of this year’s X Factor USA. Now it has been confirmed that the two will be replacing Steve Jones and it appears that Simon Cowell is delighted by it.
Simon admitted that it was probably not the best kept secret ever but admitted that he was very happy to have Khloe and Mario on board. He stated, “The worst kept secret in Hollywood is out. Mario and Khloe are our hosts. They will debut on our first live show in November and I couldn’t be happier.”
Meanwhile, Khloe Kardashian revealed that she is very excited to be a part of the show, as she is a big fan. She said, “I’ve been a big fan of the show and look forward to working with Simon and all of the judges. It’s going to be so much fun!”
Mario Lopez also got involved, admitting that he and Khloe had been friends for a long time and look forward to working together, “I’m very excited to be joining The X Factor team, I love the show, and I’ve been a big fan of Simon Cowell and the judges for a long time. Khloe and I have been friends for years and I know we’ll be a great team and have a blast,” said Lopez.
Khloe Kardashian’s decision to be on The X Factor USA has reportedly upset her sister Kim Kardashian, who is supposedly worried that Khloe will steal her limelight. You can see Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez hosting on The X Factor USA when the live shows start next month.
