Reality star Khloe Kardashian and actor Mario Lopez have been confirmed as the new hosts of The X Factor USA.
Rumors surrounding the two joining the show have swirled for months and were finally answered today. Kardashian took to her official website to tell her fans the news.Â ”Hi loves. I’m sure you’ve been hearing the rumors and I’m SO excited that I can finally confirm the news – I am joiningÂ The X FactorÂ as co-host with Mario Lopez!!!!
“I’m a huge fan of the show so I literally fell over in my chair when I heard that I was being considered for the role. The show already has such an incredible panel of judges and it is truly an honor to have been given this opportunity to work with them.
“I’m thrilled, overjoyed and of course a little nervous about this new step in my career, and I can’t wait to get started. Wish me luck!”
Saved by the Bell actor Lopez, announced his news on Twitter.Â ”Alright guys, it’s officialâ€¦ I’ll be hosting @TheXFactorUSA ! Looking forward to working with @SimonCowell and the rest of the amazing team.”
The show’s creator Simon Cowell joked about the new hosts, saying,Â ”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.”
Can we just get rid of Mario and go with Khloe? I know she’s a Kardashian and all, but you gotta admit, she’s funny. This will definitely make me want to tune in to the show.
