What's So Risky About Khloé Kardashian Odom's 'X Factor' Gig?

Live hosting is one first Khloé Kardashian Odom has tackled on X Factorbut as it turns out, working on the show has given her many a fashion first, too.

“It’s fun to try [different styles] on X Factor,” the star tells PEOPLE. “It gives me a different platform to try looks compared to a reality show because we film [Keeping Up With the Kardashians] 12 to 18 hours a day, so you have to stay in the same outfit.”

Understandably, she often grows tired of what she’s wearing while working those long hours on her family’s E! show. “You might get over [your look] or be like, ‘My head hurts from this ponytail!'” she jokes. “But you can’t take it out [until we wrap filming for the day].”

Like most people, Odom has mornings where she just doesn’t feel like getting glam, either. “We film our show seven days a week, and during production season you don’t have a day off,” she shares. “You’re tired, so sometimes I’m like, ‘I don’t care about doing my hair today.'”

X Factor is another story, though: Since the show airs live twice per week, Odom has been able to try trends — like oversized buns, dramatic shoulders, bejeweled headpieces and colored leather (above) — that she may not have worn before.

“By doing [X Factor] we have more time, and you get to think more about the thought [behind] your outfit,” she says. “And I love taking risks and trying new things. Sometimes they’re a hit — or a miss — but that’s what [risks] are for.”

We can’t wait to see what risks she takes on tonight’s X Factor, airing at 8 p.m. ET on FOX. Tell us: Do you like Odom’s X Factor style?

Khloe has been looking pretty fab on X Factor. Loved the LBD with the cut outs last night.

Khloe K. is absolutely the worst host ever of a show like the X Fsctor. Surely Simon C. will not use her again!!!

I am a fan of Kloe Kardashian but she is a horrible host! She answers the question in her question! “I heard you have a stomach ache, how are you feeling?” She constantly gets tongue tied and asks the most ridiculous questions. I love her, just NOT as a tv host!

Nice legs but horrible host. I cringe every time she opens her mouth. She’s awkward, robotic. She asks the same dumb questions (what is your head right now?). Maybe it’s nerves but she seems to have limited vocabulary.

By the way, Mario Lopez is better
looking than her -:). X factor doesn’t need 2 hosts.

Kassie on

I love Khloe as well_but at this point she’s horrible at hosting, maybe she could take classes on public speaking, presenting skills and improvisation classes, if she really wants to actually make a career out of this. It would be refreshing to see at least one of the sisters have an actual real job
