Khloe Kardashian is set to co-host the upcoming season of The X Factor alongside Mario LopezThe Extra host and star of E!’s Keeping Up with The Kardashians will join judges Britney Spears, L.A. Reid, Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell and will start in time for the show’s switch from taped to live episodes next month.

Khloe sat down with longtime friend Ryan Seacrest to speak about her upcoming role on the show on Friday about her nerves:

"I'm so nervous — I've never hosted before! What if I get kicked off the show because I say something so bad? That's what I'm nervous about, but I can't be anybody else but myself. I just have to control the language a little bit."

Of course, in true Khloe fashion, she also talks about hating loving her new co-host, as well.

"[Mario and I] really hate each other. I'm so sick to my stomach that I have to be by his side. You know, when [someone is] that unattractive, it's just hard to be with [them]. "[Mario] is the nicest guy ever. He's great at what he does, so it takes some of the pressure off of me…I think we're going to have fun. We've known each other for a while, so I feel comfortable around him. He'll make it easy for me."

The two will begin appearing on the reality competition midway through its current second season run.
