She's landed her dream job!

As expected, Khloé Kardashian is joining The X Factor as host, and will joined in that role by Mario Lopez.

"The worst-kept secret in Hollywood is out," said show creator and judge Simon Cowell. "Mario and Khloé are our hosts. They will debut on our first live show in November, and I couldn't be happier."

Kardashian, 28, was long rumored to be in the running for the job, and said last month that she "always wanted to do hosting" and would be "honored" to join the Fox show.

"I'm so thrilled to become a part of The X Factor family," she said in a statement Tuesday. "I've been a big fan of the show and look forward to working with Simon and all of the judges. It's going to be so much fun!"

"Khloé and I have been friends for years, and I know we'll be a great team and have a blast," added Lopez, 39.
