There have been wild guesses and assumptions regarding the status of Khloe Kardashian as the host of Fox’s The X Factor. Fox has crystallized the assumptions making it official that Mario Lopez, who had been the co host in The X Factor, would be the one to stay back while Kardashian would leave!
The producers of the show has made the official statement that Khloe Kardashian would not host hereafter while wishing her all the luck for her future endeavours.
However, Mario Lopez, who had been the Extra host, would continue being the sole host to the third season of The X Factor. Third season for the show would have Lopez as its host, taking two judges from the last season, Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell, while the third name has not yet been announced. The producers have also held up the notice that L.A. Reid and Britney Spears, the former judges, would not make a comeback for third season.
Cowell has been quoted as expressing himself as being thrilled at the stay-back of Mario for hosting the third season. The former and continuing judge has also commented on the stay back of judges especially Demi for another season is quite difficult.
