Khloe Kardashian Amber RoseIn yet another glowing reminder of how fame trounces everything else now, Khloe Kardashian is reportedly in the running to become the next host of The X-Factor. Let me repeat that for you: Khloe Kardashian is in the running to host The X-Factor.

TMZ has more:

Sources connected with the show tell us … they have whittled down the list of finalists to 6, and Khloe is on it.

We’re told Khloe would like the gig, but she’s not going to get it without a screen test. Production sources tell us … producers will be doing screen tests in the next 2 weeks. Our sources say they will NOT buy a pig in a poke, and anyone who wants the hosting job must audition.

Not a bad move for the show, because the Kardashians are a proven audience draw.

In other words, Simon Cowell is going to do pull every trick he can to get as many of us to watch this show as possible.
