Since when does a Kardashian know anything about talent. Then again, this should be natural for her. Getting known for standing next to talent without having any.

Khloe is annoying. Mario is witty, handsome, and has an overall likable demeanor. He could do this gig on his own. Now we'll all be subjected to more Kardashion torture!

Although I believe you're on point about Khloe, I have to disagree with you on Mario. He has a very likable demeanor and he's very witty. I always thought he should be hosting a major TV network gig. Good for him.

i think I'm going to stop watching the x factor now. she has no hosting experience that qualifies her and Mario is so fake and annoying. i prefer the first over these two .
