Khloé Kardashian and Mario Lopez are coming to a small screen near you!
After weeks of speculation, Fox has confirmed that Khloé and Mario have joined the X Factor family as co-hosts.
“The worst kept secret in Hollywood is out,” said creator and judge Simon Cowell. “Mario and Khloé are our hosts. They will debut on our first live show in November and I couldn’t be happier.”
And the new team feel exactly the same way.
“I’m so thrilled to become a part of The X Factor family,” says Khloé. “I’ve been a big fan of the show and look forward to working with Simon and all of the judges. It’s going to be so much fun!”
“I’m very excited to be joining The X Factor team,” says Mario. “I love the show, and I’ve been a big fan of Simon Cowell and the judges for a long time. Khloé and I have been friends for years and I know we’ll be a great team and have a blast.”
Judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato have already welcomed the new duo with open arms.
“Welcome to @TheXFactorUSA team, @KhloeKardashian and @MarioLopezExtra - so excited to have you as co-hosts! #WelcomeKhloeAndMario,” Britney tweeted, while Demi retweeted the exciting news from @TheXFactorUSA twitter account.
This will be the first major hosting gig for the Kardashian sister, who hosted one season of E!’s Fashion Police. Mario is one of the current hosts on Extra and also has his own show on the nationwide Clear Channel radio show called “On with Mario Lopez.”
