The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star and the 'Extra' host have reportedly inked the deals to serve as the co-hosts for the singing competition.
Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez are named the co-hosts of "The X Factor (US)", latest reports say. Various sources have confirmed that both the reality TV personality and the TV host have inked their deals to host the FOX singing competition starting in November.
At the second season premiere party in September, Simon Cowell said that the show would have two hosts. "I think I know the two people it's going to be now. It's going to be a boy and a girl," so the British producer stated.
Khloe had been persistently mentioned as the replacement of Steve Jones, who was fired at the end of the first season. Corbin Bleu was also reportedly eying the gig along with Mario, but it's the "Extra" host who was the frontrunner to be Khloe's partner.
The second installment of American "The X Factor" is currently in the judges' houses phase. At the end of this round, 16 acts will be chosen to move to the live shows which will begin early next month.
