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 ABCâ€™s â€œWipeoutâ€ says she auditioned â€” and was turned down â€” for the hosting job on Simon Cowellâ€™s Fox singing show.
â€œThey went with a British guy [Steve Jones],â€ she sighed. â€œYou canâ€™t be more polar opposite, so I am okay with that.
â€œNow if the host was a brunette girl in her early 30s, I would be like â€˜wait a minute!â€™ â€
Though it appears the â€œX Factorâ€ gig may soon be open again, the former Miss Teen USA says she has no plans to try a second time. â€œIâ€™m happy where I am at,â€ she tells The Post.
