Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez to Host X Factor

(PCM) Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez will be the new X Factor co-hosts! While the official announcement has yet to be made, TMZ is reporting that Kardashian, 28, and Lopez, 38, are in the middle of tying up the final details for their deals.

“We have screen tested a load of people. . .It could be a Kardashian,” Simon Cowell said just last month. “I think that would work. I’m quite a fan of not putting [experienced] hosts on this show. Because I think it’s going to give it a different dynamic. So we have to find people who have a great chemistry, but Khloe is definitely up there in running.”

Khloe and Mario will debut as co-hosts this November, along with the other pricey new additions: Britney Spears (who scored herself a $15 million-per-year contract) and Demi Lovato took over at the judges’ table this season, replacing Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. No word yet on how much Khloe and Mario will cost X Factor.
