Vanessa Lachey (formerly Vanessa Minnillo) reveals that she has tried out to host The X Factor but was passed over for Steve Jones!

The new co-host of ABC’s “Wipeout” says she auditioned — and was turned down — for the hosting job on Simon Cowell’s Fox singing show.

“They went with a British guy [Steve Jones],” she sighed. “You can’t be more polar opposite, so I am okay with that.
“Now if the host was a brunette girl in her early 30s, I would be like ‘wait a minute!’ ”

Though it appears the “X Factor” gig may soon be open again, the former Miss Teen USA says she has no plans to try a second time. “I’m happy where I am at,” she tells The Post.
