X-Factor Cleans House: Steve Jones, Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger Not Returning...

E! mops up the bloodbath:

JonesSources tell E! News that Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones aren't the only ones not coming back to X Factor next season. Believe it or not, Fox has informed Simon Cowell's longtime friend Paula Abdul she won't be needed for the series' next installment.

"She found out today," says a show source. "At this point, the only ones staying are Simon and L.A. Reid."

Another source confirms to E! News that both Paula and Nicole were not renewed, "Simon wants to take the show in a different direction," says the insider.

Steve Jones Axed from 'X Factor'?

Welsh stunner Steve Jones is getting axed as host of X Factor, UK's Mirror tabloid is reporting:

EllenMy source says: “Steve keeps saying that living in LA is a dream come true. He loves the weather and the women, and he loves working on X Factor – it’s just a shame that the US public has not warmed to him. He got terrible reviews from critics when he started and things haven’t got better. There have been mistakes and he just doesn’t seem to have the knack for dealing with contestants. The executives at Fox have already decided not to renew his contract and so, short of a miracle happening, it is pretty much a done deal that he will not take part next season.”

His worst moment came earlier this month, when Rachel Crow, 13, sank to the floor in tears live on air as Steve told her she’d been eliminated.

The host first crouched down, then stood around looking awkward after Simon Cowell and Rachel’s mother rushed on stage to console the distraught teenager.

Well maybe this will free him up to show off more of the talents that he does have.

Like the one he displayed on Ellen, which bears repeating, AFTER THE JUMP...

UPDATE: A rep for Jones denies the report: "There have been absolutely no conversations about Steve Jones leaving The X Factor. No discussions have been had and no decisions will be made about any contracts until the New Year."

'X Factor' Host Steve Jones Strips Down for Ellen: VIDEO


Ellen gave her audience an early furry Christmas gift by unwrapping X Factor host Steve Jones on her show. Jones, a former model, was happy to oblige.


Jones also talked about why he comes across as pushy on the show:

"I’m wearing an earpiece and there’s about five people screaming, ‘Shut Paula up. Shut her up now. Move on.’ I’m going to have hearing damage in this ear by the end of the series...I feel terrible because I feel on occasions I’m coming across as rude and abrupt and that’s really not me. I cherish every word that comes out of Paula...She just talks and talks and talks. Doesn’t she? Where is the off button on this woman? Off, next please. You know?”

Former Versace Model Steve Jones Wishes He Had the Gay in Him


Former Welsh Versace model turned TV presenter/actor Steve Jones, who fronts Attitude magazine's new "Sex" issue, says he's jealous of gay men who get to sleep around: "I’ll be sitting in BKB on (London’s) Old Compton Street opposite G-A-Y and see those guys coming out with a different man every night, and I’m just like ‘You lucky b******s,’ I would give anything to have that kind of lifestyle – but the girls just won’t have it."

He won't jump into that scene however: "I wish I had it in me to give it a go, but I’m just a girl man through and through."

And though his experience kissing a man during a game of spin the bottle was like "kissing a corpse" he says he's game for love scenes on camera: "I would have done them (gay sex scenes.) I would have acted them out. Jake and Heath did it and look at those results – yummy!"

If you'll remember, earlier this year Jones also seemed keen to step into the naked part recently popularized by Daniel Radcliffe. Check that out, AFTER THE JUMP...

Former Versace Model Steve Jones Takes on Equus


Former Welsh Versace model turned TV presenter Steve Jones, who is probably not too well known on these shores (he works for Channel 4 in the UK), was asked to do his best Daniel Radcliffe for Heat magazine. He comes off kind of like Radcliffe's hairier daddy.

Said Jones: "I was really chuffed with the picture. But frankly, I was a little nervous as I know Daniel Radcliffe is hung like a donkey (pardon the pun). Thankfully, the camera stopped just above my Hogwarts!"

Actually, I'm glad we didn't have to see warts of any kind.
