Simon Cowell Reveals Who He Wants as Host for 'X Factor' -- but Will the Network Go Along? TMZ

The man behind Fox’s “The X Factor” has revealed his choice as the show’s new host, but it’s unclear whether Fox is prepared to grant him his wish, TMZ.com reports.

Simon Cowell wants reality star Khloe Kardashian, sources tell the website. “Our sources say Simon made the case that Khloe is a big draw who will complete the circle of making the show decidedly younger than last season,” the story reports. “Khloe has a connection to Britney Spears and Demi Lovato and Simon believes the three of them create an authentic vibe that none of the other potential hosts bring to the table.”

The decision is in the network’s hands, and is expected within a week. One source described the decision as “highly likely” to go in Kardashian’s favor, the story notes.
