Mario Lopez has signed on to host another season of Fox’s reality singing competition. But Khloe Kardashian, however, won’t be back.
“Khloe Kardashian will not be returning to co-host The X Factor. We really enjoyed working with her and wish her all the best in her future endeavors,” X Factor producers said.
As a seasoned host, Lopez easily fronted the show. But Kardashian seemed to struggle, earning the mockery of viewers.
In the announcement about Lopez’s return, X Factor’s head honcho made no mention of Kardashian’s departure.
“I’m thrilled Mario is back for season three of The X Factor. Hosting a live show and keeping the judges — especially Demi — in line, is not an easy job, but Mario is a pro and we are glad he’s coming back,” Simon Cowell said in statement.
