Christopher Maloney's journey on the X Factor came to an end this weekend when he missed out on the winner's title. Since then, the talented singer has earned himself quite a few headlines from missing the X Factor final group performance to calling Carolynne Poole a very rude word.
But what will Chris do once the headlines about him stop and the X Factor 2012 is just a distant memory? He may have said on the Xtra Factor: "There’s been a few offers made. I’ve only been out of the competition for 20 minutes and there’s been quite a few offers. Watch this space", but we've come up with a few ideas...
- Release music: Well, that would be the obvious plan for Chris but could the talented crooner go on to produce a second or even third successful album? Hmmm..
And if that doesn't work, Chris could always take what he learnt from watching Nicole Scherzinger, Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa and become...
- A judge on a cruise ship talent show: Before he stepped in front of the judges and audition for the X Factor, Chris had experience of singing infront of a crowd and he could use this to become the Simon Cowell of the cruise ship talent shows.

If that doesn't work...
- Chris could have his own reality TV show: Many reality TV stars have gone on to have their own TV shows, so why not Christopher? His show could be set in Liverpool and also feature his nan. Alternatively he could appear in a range of TV shows including Celebrity Big Brother, I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, or Dancing On Ice.
- Chris could launch his own range of fake tan: Is it just us, or did Christopher look a tad orange during his time on the show? yes? Well Chris could launch his own cosmetic range starting with the fake tan. If it's worked for TOWIE's Amy Childs...
-Chris could do a pantomime tour playing a villain: During his time on the show, there didn't appear to be a shortage of stories that painted Chris out as a villain whether he was one or not. But we think Chris could have fun with the title in panto!
So there you have it, we've given Christopher a few career options, what do you think the X Factor star will do next?'Ladies' Man' Harry Styles 'Determined To Win Back Taylor Swift Following Conor Kennedy Split'
