TV reality star Khloe Kardashian is in the running to become a host of The X Factor, the singing contest's creator Simon Cowell said Tuesday.
Cowell told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres that Kardashian, 28, one of the three adult sisters of the wealthy California socialite family, was one of many people who had auditioned for the role, and had impressed him.
"It could be a Kardashian. I think that would work," he said, adding that "we have to find people who have a great chemistry, but Khloe is definitely up there in the running." Cowell said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday.
Khloe Kardashian rose to fame in reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians and its spin-offs, but is often overshadowed by her more outgoing sister, Kim. She is married to basketball player Lamar Odom and was recently in the news over the couple's efforts to have a baby.
