X Factor 2013: Executive Producers on Khloe Kardashian As Host

Don’t cry for Khloe Kardashian Odom just yet! Last week, reports circulated that the reality star would definitely not be asked to return as co-host for The X Factor 2013. However, on a conference call February 26, executive producers Rob Wade and Andrew Llinares revealed that they haven’t made any hard decisions about hosts or judges yet. Right now, their focus is on finding the right contestants.

“We’ve got these auditions that start Wednesday [March 6] and we want to make sure that that’s where our focus stays right now,” the execs explained. The nationwide auditions kick off in Los Angeles, followed by Charleston, S.C., New Orleans, Long Island, NY, and Denver.

While the EPs are focused on finding great contestants, don’t be surprised if they aren’t the only new faces you see on X Factor 2013 — a change in hosting could still be in the cards.

We’re sort of at the beginning of the whole process at the moment. We’re looking at everything in the show, whether it’s the hosts, the judges, the contestants, the whole show really. It’s a little bit early for us to say [whether Khloe will return], really. We’re still kind of open to all options on that, we’re working through it. “

The show producers did take time to praise Khloe’s work on the previous season, “She obviously hadn’t hosted before, but we all felt she did a great job.”

Rob and Andrew also acknowledged that the job is much harder than it looks. “Everyone thinks it’s an easy kind of gig and it’s not, it’s really really difficult. and the great hosts have spent years and years making it look really easy…. We would never presume that someone in a hosting role in their first year of having done it, expect them to be perfect, I mean how could you? You know, we thought Khloe did a good job.”

Finally, they were quick to remind everyone what The X Factor is really about: unearthing unknown talent. “At the end of the day the stars of the show are the contestants, they really really are. That’s what we need to focus on is making sure we do a great great set of auditions around the country and hope we find some true stars there.”

Kim and Khloe Kardashian, along with momager Kris Jenner, spoke Thursday on a panel moderated by E!’s Suzanne Kolb on marketing in a world of social and new media.

Who better to discuss branding through social and new media than the first family of pop culture: the Kardashians.

Kim and Khloe Kardashian joined momager Kris Jenner for a panel discussion moderated by E!’s Suzanne Kolb at Women at NBCU’s Power of the Purse event hosted by NBCUniversal Integrated Media, in which the trio addressed their group and individual branding and how to harness the power of social media.

“I really do believe that our success is wildly due to social media,” said Kim. “It has a huge role. I think we are also a little bit lucky in the fact that our show organically launched at the time that social media was really beginning, but we took advantage of it and we embraced it.”

Of her 14.7 million followers (Kris and Khloe have 2.8 million and 8 million followers, respectively), Kim said that she frequently asks them to chime in on her decisions when creating and marketing products. Among earliest marketing pushes was for the launch of a fragrance, the bottle for which was selected with help from her fans.

“We think of our brand as a brand for our fans,” says Kim of developing products, including clothing and makeup lines, that cater directly to fan requests. As for creating an engaged following, she believes in the importance of “diving into what we’re most passionate about” rather than sending out constant “meaningless” posts.

As an extension of their own products, the reality stars addressed their branding as a whole and how they choose to endorse certain products over others. Kim, with a laugh, reminded the audience of a 2011 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians in which mom Kris discussed shilling adult diapers while Khloe criticized her mother for pitching her an endorsement of adult toys.

Everything we do and take on has to make sense for that person,” said Kris, noting that she hopes to get younger daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner actively involved in an anti-bullying campaign. “People are not just nasty to celebrities or people that are popular, they’re nasty to each other,” she added.

Among the other topics addressed during their panel was the ability to stretch their own 15 minutes into something much more. Said Khloe: “Everyone has their day in the sun. We know it’s not going to last forever, so I think that’s why we’re so in the present and we take everything in.”
