If you are wondering to yourself, Who is Steve Jones? This is exactly why he isn’t hosting the show anymore.
After speculation and rumors that the host of the The X Factor was getting axed, it’s finally true.
On his twitter page he writes, “I wont be hosting next seasons XFactor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time. Good luck to everyone on the show.”
There was just something about Steve Jones that wasn’t Ryan Seacrest-y enough. It was like everyone was expecting someone like Ryan Seacrest and then Steve Jones comes out with his tall legs and British accent and it was just too much to handle. Also, he didn’t “do” that much and his interviews were awkward.
When Melanie Amaro won she was crying so hysterically she could barely open her eyes, but Jones kept shoving a mike in her face and was like “so what does it feel like to win?”
Now many are wondering who will fill his spot. Rumor is that lots of people want Nicole Scherzinger off the judging panel and that she will now become host. I like that better. Nicole cries at the drop of a hat and would be better suited up on the stage crying every week when a new contestant gets voted off. Also, you know Nicole Scherzinger will find any excuse to be on a stage again. How else can we see her entire outfit?
When the rumors about Steve Jones began to circulate last month, reps for the host called the reports “a fabrication” but when Simon Cowell was asked about it, he didn’t deny the rumors, only saying, “I don’t think he did a bad job…but there is a Brit limit on the show,” Simon joked.
