The X Factor Season 2 premieres Wednesday, September 12, 2012 with newly-minted judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato in the hot seat(s). One crucial role has yet to be filled, however: that of the host! Casting rumors have pegged everyone from Leann Rimes to Stacy Keibler for the spot ever since January, when Season 1 host Steve Jones announced that he wouldn’t be coming back for Season 2.

Now, TMZ is reporting show execs have narrowed the host potentials down to a shortlist of 6. One of the names on that list? Khloe Kardashian, the sassiest of the Kardashian sisters. Khloe and hubby Lamar Odom have reportedly pulled the plug on their spinoff reality show, Khloe & Lamar. TMZ’s sources say Khloe really wants to land the hosting gig, but producers are requiring screen tests from all hopefuls.

Somehow, we think this girl’s gonna pass the test.
