Apparently, the two hosts with the mostess have pretty negative perceptions of one another.
“Mario thinks Khloe is an airhead, and she thinks he’s a musclebound stuffed shirt,” said the insider. “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.”
Khloe and Mario are set to rake in $1 million each, but both reportedly want equal air time, the same number of promotional commitments, identical dressing room trailers, and the exact same budget for hair and makeup.
“Mario and Khloe each feel they’ll be the new name draw for X Factor fans. And for the producers, the headaches have just begun,” the source said.
