So says TMZ, which reported Friday that Kardashian — known as the funny one among her reality-famous siblings — is the frontrunner to get the gig following a successful screen test. If Cowell, who apparently considers her a magnet for young viewers along with Spears and Lovato, hires the E! star for his Fox talent competition, then she would basicaly have to start right away. The second-season reboot of X Factor premieres Sept. 12 and 13.
A Kardashian rep did not immediately respond to THR‘s requests for comment. Fox had no comment.
Cowell, meanwhile, says he’s “pissed off” at popular NBC rival The Voice for a decision to air three episodes against X Factor when both shows return next week.
“It’s very simple: They don’t want people to see this first episode,” he told reporters Thursday. “I think it’s mean-spirited and I hope and I pray that it backfires on them because this is one of the best shows we’ve ever made.”
