Although X Factor producers have remained quiet on the issue, its unclear whether or not Khloe Kardashian will be returning as a host for the next season.

According to a source who spoke to the New York Post, Khloe is out for good.

They are asking Mario [Lopez] to come back, but not Khloe, a source told the publication.

Entertainment Weekly reported that they received the same sentiment when interviewing Fox reality chief Mike Darnell last month.

I think the hosts were okay, Darnell had said. I think Mario knows how to be a host. I think Khloe was new. And I thought for someone new she did okay. She never hosted before.

X Factor ratings were down and disappointing for the second season.

With Britney Spears and L.A. Reids exit, the show may be desperate to find a fix if facing budget cuts.

Kardashians awkward hosting and controversial nip slip received a lot of flak from fans while Lopez held the duo together.

Simon Cowell is in for a third season but its unsure if Demi Lovato will be joining the show as a judge again.
