(LOS ANGELES) — Khloe Kardashian is one of the finalists to become the new host of The X Factor, reports TMZ.com. She is reportedly one of the six remaining hopefuls, but needs to take a screen test before receiving further consideration.
Producers will be holding those screen tests within the next two weeks, and they think that Kardashian has a built-in audience from her considerable reality show experience on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and the spin-off series Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami and Khloe & Lamar.
The X Factor, which has hired two new judges in Britney Spears and Demi Lovato, was hosted last season by Welshman Steve Jones.
