Technically, these two are “very close” to signing off on the dotted line, but nothing has been confirmed by FOX or reps for “The X Factor,” so basically, these two could potentially host the show, or maybe everything will fall through and suddenly Heidi Klum and the guy from “The Bachelor” are the hosts. We have no idea!
Hollyscoop chatted with Mario last night at the Emmys and got to the bottom of it.
We straight asked him…Are you hosting “The X Factor?”
“You gotta wait and see,” he tells us, but then drops this hint, “But, X is my favorite letter!”
We think that’s a pretty clear YES. But for now, we’ll call this rumor, up in the air?
Then Mario jokes, “But you can see Xtra right now, that you can see.”
Of course he’s referring to his daily hosting gig on “Extra.” If Mario joins “The X Factor” he’s truly becoming the next Ryan Seacrest, and by that we mean, appearing on every possible entertainment news show, talent show, and awards show!
