Must've been nippy on set for 'X Factor's' Khloe K.

Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez made their big entry as hosts of "The X Factor" Wednesday night with the first live show.

While their hosting abilities were fine and dandy, it was Kardashian who really grabbed attention, especially from judge Simon Cowell.

Dressed in a fitted black pencil skirt and a fairly sheer purple blouse with a plunging neckline, Kardashian looked great - and chilly.

"May I say, you're looking very sexy tonight," Cowell told the new host. "I think the air-conditioning's on high tonight. ... That's very distracting."

For the viewers at home who didn't quite catch what Cowell meant, Kardashian explained on Twitter, "I think I had a little nip action earlier LOL."

The night went well overall, as "X Factor's" ratings show the reality competition was a hit with Wednesday's primetime audience. According to The Wrap, preliminary numbers found that 7.4 million viewers tuned in to "X Factor," with a 2.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic.

For Kardashian, her first night was a little nerve-wracking, but fun. "Already half way into the show – and I must say I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new job!!!" she tweeted Wednesday, adding the following day, "I was sooo nervous LOL!" Mario Lopez, meanwhile, posted that he "#HadaBlast!"

The newly coined "Nipples and Dimples" - as a parody Twitter account is named, giving nod to both Kardashian's headlights and Lopez's famous smile - will be back on "X Factor" tonight at 8 p.m. ET on Fox. How do you think they performed?

    I'm not sure which is more annoying...the loud, dramatic-sounding announcer, how awkward and terrible Khloe is as a host, or how no one ever seems to know what to say and when. That's entertainment! And that's sad.

      Mario does a great job but ditch Khloe. She is awkward and fake...tries to joke her way out of constant errors & mistakes & obviously reading from teleprompter but stilted & just plain awful!!! Lose her!!!

    I've neer watched the X-Factor & never will watch it. Just the mere fact that KK & Mario are hosts is a total turn-off. What kind of credentials do these two have that would qualify them? I just don't get.

      Credential for what? They aren't exactly hosting a presidential debate. They have been in show business for 2 decades and you are questioning their credentials? Let me guess, you think you should be hosting the show?

    Totally agree with Bev and Karen... I too am thinking of not tuning in...
    That girl is awful; a total distraction and needs to be replaced; it's not like she needs the cash.

      The K women is a pig and quite frankly will cause many people to look for alternative entertainment. There's nothing about her that is appealing she's rude, stupid, over weight and no bra – give me a break! Total trash but is that a huge surprise?

    • Disappointed XFactor Fan

      Khloe really stinks. I can't believe she made it past the first night. I keep thinking it can't get any worse but it does. She's so horrible that it could make me quit watching the show. You would think with all Simon's money he would have better business sense and more class than to hire someone like her. Mario may be easier on the eyes but he's not pulling off the host gig very well either. I'm totally disappointed all the way around.

    She just towers over the contestants. It's very awkward. Other hosts might be tall, but the combination of her height and size is overwhelming the contestants, not attractive, and makes the contestants look bad. And what's with the camera angles, looking up at her from below. Very odd, and unpleasant.

    men are attracted to khoe..she is not beautiful but attractive...she's almost 6ft, big gal, big hair and she is party girl!

    i have minor experience with an have to speak to an audience whether they are an audience of 40 or 400
    as if they are old friends sitting in your living room. the audience will respond to you and actually listen to your performance,
    or annoucements whatever you've been hired to do.

    Khloe will be ok..Khloe is a bit nervous and will get the hang of it.

      @Felt Like Saying This Again

      You meant to say:

      "Men with low standards are attracted to Khloe Kardashian."

      I only know one guy who is attracted to her, but he's attracted to any and every female. Those of us with standards don't give any of the Kardashians a second look.

    I agree. She is a millionaire and is married to an NBA star but can't wear a bra. She was terrible. I did like Mario Lopez. You can see his experience hosting. He did quite well. What was Simon thinking. Replace her with someone in the music business or someone with hosting experience.

    I watched a couple of minutes of one of the earlier episodes this season and decided that this show is now a total joke. Brittney Spears, Demi Lavato, Mario Lopez, and Khloe Kardashian? What a bunch of has-beens and never-weres. So thankful for The Voice.

    Kardashian was simply AWFUL as she tried to host the X Factor!!! Wish they would find an immediate replacement. She is not up to par with the quality of the X Factor show. Mario Lopez, on the other hand, was a natural, performing excellently as host!!! Here's a suggestion. . . . get rid of Kardashian, and let Mario host it alone; he'd do a fine job and bring respect and true entertainment to the stage. Just sharing my honest thoughts. . . .
