Those X Factor USA producers better hurry up and announce their host, as time is running out! However, Khloe Kardashian is a 'definite front runner' for the gig and her hubby Lamar Odom is said to be 'very excited' about his wife's upcoming TV appearance. Nothing like giving things away, eh Lamar?
Although no announcement has been officially made by FOX, sources have told Hollywoodlife that Lamar has said that 'Khloe will be great' at the job.
“He loves it and is very excited because they watched the show last year together and he knows that she will be great at it because she loves the show", sources say.
They then added, “Plus it will also allow him to really focus on the start of the NBA season knowing that she is at a job that she is loving for the first few months of the NBA season. Lamar is very happy with how everything is turning out being back in LA.”

For months, speculation has been rife as to who will host the show. Having insisted that the show will feature two hosts, names of various celebrities came out in abundance, including Khloe's.
Appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Simon Cowell revealed to the host where about in the process the show was to find the presenters to front the show, which kicked off last night.
He said: "We have screentested a load of people. I know who I would like, but no, I've got to get it approved by the network, so I think it would be wrong to say at this point just in case the network say no."
With no names revealed, Ellen pushed Simon for more information. Hinting that it could be Khloe who he wants to front the show with a male co-host, Simon added: "It could be a Kardashian. It could be a Kardashian. I think that would work."
"I mean, I'm quite a fan of not putting hosts on this show because I think it's going to give it a different dynamic, so we've got to find people who've got a great chemistry. But Khloe's definitely up there in the running."
Do you think Khloe fits the bill perfectly?
