While it isn't a done deal yet, word has it that Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez are X Factor bound. The duo would supposedly share hosting duties back stage. That includes keeping the contestants calm, interviewing them as needed and, of course, cheering them on.
Just last week Simon Cowell let it drop that his preference for the show's female host was none other than Kardashian sister, Khloe. However, he made no specific mention of his choice for male host. In fact, the only thing he'd noted of late was that he preferred it be someone without hosting experience.
Clearly Lopez doesn't fit that guideline, though. He's been hosting Extra regularly for some time now. But perhaps the handsome Latino was the exception to Cowell's rule. He is excellent at what he does and he looks pretty good next to Khloe.
Of course until the announcement gets an official nod, the news remains nothing more than rumor. It wouldn't the first time, the media got it wrong, with a little manipulation taking place behind the scenes.
What do you think? Are Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian good choices? Sound off below.
