Although producers have yet to make the official confirmation, one source close to the negotations said "the deals are now done." Salaries have not been disclosed, but we know Khloe and Mario will each have a seven-figure salary. And it will be millions, not million, according to Daily Mail. Let's just say Khloe has come a LONG way from getting fired on Celebrity Apprentice!
However, it looks like The X Factor is continuing to copy American Idol in every way, right down to the drama between celebrities! Before an official announcement has even been made, Khloe and Mario are already reportedly butting heads, according to Entertainmentwise. "Mario thinks Khloe is an airhead, and she thinks he’s a musclebound stuffed shirt. They’re already vying for the spotlight, and the real competition is going to be which one will be the bigger pain in the butt for X Factor brass when production starts," said one insider.
At least Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey have sold millions of album and possess musical talent. Two people who are famous solely based off their looks (plus an acting gig from 20 years ago in the case of Mario) starting drama with one another? We might have to pass on watching that trainwreck unfold if it's true.
What do you think of Khloe and Mario as hosts?
