SAN FRANCISCO — Chalk up another gig for Belle Knox. The Duke University porn phenom will be hosting an X-rated online reality show come this fall.
Knox has reportedly signed on to be the honcho for “The Sex Factor” — an “American idol”-type competition that will award a $1 million prize and a scene with Knox to those voted as best sexual performers.
Eigth men and eight women will "duke” it out in the hardcore sexual competition that will also be judged and coached by adult stars Keiran Lee, Tori Black, Lexi Belle and Remy LaCroix.
"They're going to have fans. They're going to interact with their fans. It's going to be very different," the show’s creator John, told the New York Daily News.
Male star Lee said he’s looking forward to the show helping aspiring porn stars break into the industry.
“Unfortunately most men just don't have the libido to perform at a moment's notice,” Lee said. "Something like this would be great to give guys experience before a lot of time and money is wasted.”
Wannabe porn stars need to tweet a video of themselves to the show's Twitter handle, @thesxfactor.
"They don't necessarily have to be sex tapes. You could just submit a really cool video," John said. "A lot of it is pure marketability — just showing the world that you're down to do it and you're a super marketable, well-spoken reality star."
Others can even nominate people they'd like to see be the next porn star by tweeting #IWantToSeeYouInPorn.
One male and one female winner wiil be announced in Jan. 2015.
