The X Factor Signs Khloe Kardashian, Mario Lopez to Host

Well, if the reason you haven't tuned into Simon Cowell's not-quite-American-Idol show "The X Factor" is that it didn't have an unattractive giantess as its host, do I have news for you!

It's been rumored for a while, but it now appears to be official: Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez are in the final stages of agreeing to host Fox's singing competition "The X Factor."

Khloe Kardashian

Lopez actually has personality and chops that make him a good fit for the show, having hosted numerous programs before including Miss Teen USA, "Extra," and "Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew." He was even able to keep his game face on during the infamous Miss South Carolina "don't have maps" debacle, which should serve him well when some of the less talented contestants take center stage.

Kardashian is a puzzler. Not that she doesn't have some measure of notoriety due to her reality series, one with husband/NBA star Lamar Odom and the other with the rest of the Kardashian clan (klan?), but she's never exhibited much more personality than her more attractive sisters, who have so little personality themselves.

Currently, the show is in its 'bootcamp' stage of episodes where potential contenders are narrowed down to an elite crew by judges Cowell, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid. So far ratings have been down from last year, despite the judging shake-up that brought a little more star power to the table with the addition of Spears.

Both hosts are set to debut on the show in November when the live shows kick off.

Well, this news will get Simon all excited, won't it? This means the ratings for his show will rise dramatically. This should put the touch of death on X Factor, huh?

"Unattractive giantess," lol. I REALLY don't get the fascination with that family. At all. Not a one of the girls is attractive, Bruce Jenner wrecked his face, etc. And these people, much like the rest of the planet, can't even stand each other!
