Little did we all know, but Nick Lachey’s wife Vanessa tried out for the hosting gig on season one of The X Factor USA!
The job went to Welsh presenter Steve Jones, but after learning that he might be fired, we’ve found that she actually wanted the job in the first place.
She said, “They went with a British guy. You can’t get more polar opposite, so I am okay with that. Now if the host was a brunette girl in her early thirties, I would be like ‘Wait a minute!'”
Rumors were floating around before the show started that they actually had Nicole Scherzinger hosting, with Cheryl Cole judging. But, the show opted to send Cheryl packing, keep Nicole and make her a judge and get Steve to host.
