The X Factor USA are yet to announce who their host is going to be and it's now been revealed that the front-runner in the 'battle of the presenters' is the one and only Khloe Kardashian.
According to TMZ, sources that are intimately connected to the show have said that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is 'definitely the number 1 front runner' amongst the women who tried out and is 'generally considered the best in the entire pack of host wannabes'.

Simon has revealed to Entertainmentwise that the show have done 'lots of screen tests' and it's now been said that Khloe's did exceptionally well, with the show's suits "believing that Khloe makes the most sense in terms of audience draw", especially since they've already invested heavily in Britney Spears and Demi Lovato to attract younger viewers.
The TMZ source went on to talk odds: "There's at least an 85% chance she'll get the job."
Ooo, would you want to see Khloe take to the X Factor stage? Let us know your thoughts.
And that's not all Simon had to say about the host's position, as Entertainmentwise also found out that there are also 'quite a few actors in the running'.
Simon said: "There are quite a few people who are hosts, people who are actors. My gut feeling is that we'll probably go with a boy and a girl who haven't had any [presenting] experience because i think that might make it more interesting..."
That it would! And there may even be a second host added to the show, Simon also revealed.
"There's so much talking on these shows now, we've worked out its 11-12 minutes over a 2-hour show, it's just too boring as Ryan demonstrated for one person to say everything."
He adds, "I think you have to mix it up a little bit. I kind of know what I'm looking for, that's why we screen-tested a lot of people."
