As a co-host on FOX’s The X Factor, Khloe Kardashian Odom interviews and hangs out with the contenders backstage. And, that has apparently led to strong bonds for her.

After Thursday’s elimination show, Celebuzz asked Kardashian, who was rocking 70s chic, if she felt like a big sister to the younger contestants.

“I mean I’m always there to console them when we do talk backstage,” Kardashian, 28, tells us.

On Wednesday’s performance show, judge L.A. Reid kept hammering girl group Fifth Harmony about their lack of harmonizing. And Kardashian was there to help lift their spirits.

“I was like, ‘You guys, he’s trying to throw you off your game. Don’t let that happen.’ Because, he’s another judge, he’s not for them,” she recalled.

“So, I do. I feel like I have to be their big sister or whatever. I mean, I really get emotionally invested. That’s just my personality.”

On Thursday’s elimination show, Fifth Harmony found itself in the bottom two with Diamond White. The judges ultimately gave the girl group another week. CeCe Frey was instantly eliminated for having the lowest amount of America’s votes.

X Factor airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 PM on FOX. Also, here’s your chance to ask the star your questions directly: Khloe will be joining Celebuzz’s Twitter Chat on Dec. 20!
