Geez, after what felt like an annoyingly high number of stories entitled “Khloe and Mario Very Close To Signing X Factor Hosting Contract” the two new hosts have officially signed on the dotted line.
It’s official, the Kardashians have started their infiltration. Very soon you wont be able to turn on a TV without seeing long black hair and perfectly applied smokey-eye makeup.
A source told Hollywood Reporter that Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez have signed their contracts and are getting insane million dollar deals like the judges. Of course they won’t be taking home as much as Britney Spears’ $15 million deal, because saying “holy cow yes” when a contestant is good is ALWAYS worth $15 mil.
“X Factor” has yet to begin taping the live shows, so Khloe and Mario are expected to make their debut in November.
Khloe had been rumored to host as soon as Demi Lovato was announced as a judge and probably got the gig thanks to her friendship with Demi.
Mario’s name was thrown into the mix a couple months ago, alongside other male choices like Corbin Bleu, Kevin Jonas, and Kevin McHale. Corbin Bleu? Yeah, they made the right choice with Mario.
According to the source, it’s unclear is Mario and Khloe have screen-tested together and this will be Khloe’s first ever hosting gig, so we’ll see how this turns out.
