Khloé Kardashian is in the running to become the host of the Fox talent show, according to TMZ.com, which reports that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 28, is a frontrunner to take the former over for ousted host (and Welsh TV star) Steve Jones. Unidentified sources say her chances of being hired are high, according to the report. “I’m a big fan of The X Factor,” Kardashian told E! Online last month, after reports surfaced that she was among the finalists who auditioned for the gig. “I’ve always wanted to do hosting or talk show hosting, so it’s definitely something that I would love to do and would be honored to do,” she added. “I love Simon [Cowell].” The X Factor returns for its second season on Sept. 12 (8 p.m. ET), with new faces Britney Spears and Demi Lovato on the judges’ panel.
