Keeping Up With The Kardashians starlet Khloe Kardashian-Odom has officially bowed out of her position as host on The X Factor after just one season, while co-host Mario Lopez will be staying on as host.
A spokesman for Fox tells E! News, “Khloé 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.”
The spokesman notes that Khloe’s exit will be sad as "everyone on the show had a great relationship with her and thought she was fun to work with."
Khloe will not be replaced. Instead, Lopez will host the reality competition alone.
Lopez released a statement following the news of his return, saying, "I'm looking forward to returning to The X Factor team. We're coming back stronger and better than ever and I'm excited to check out all the new talent."
