** Allyson wore a gown made to look like the [[FluffyFashionFeathers feather-trimmed]] stage [[FairytaleWeddingDress wedding dress]] that {{Beyonce}} wore for a performance at the 2009 Creator/{{BET}} awards. The problem is, well...[[http://justjared.buzznet.com/photo-gallery/2019131/beyonce-wedding-dress-07/ you can see the dress here]]. It's practically a swimsuit with a see-through skirt attached (and just barely avoids being a ShowgirlSkirt). The "best" part is that the girl is Caucasian and wanted her skin "brown" to look more like Beyonce.

** In "Me and My Pet", a mother said "I think Alycesaundra has won something bigger than the ''other child''". She also gave one girl a cute little lamb for her routine, and "the other child" got a turkey. She stated that Giovanna, "the other child", is a "mean sourpuss" with "no personality." (If that's the case, then it ''might'' be because you're acting like this, lady.)
** Inverted with Lola, who clearly favored her aunt to her own mother, to the point that she refused to be held by her or sit on her lap.

** Whenever a parent of a child under three insists that the child is the one who wants to do the pageant. Most kids that age are just learning to use the bathroom, much less understand show-business.

** Alana "Honey Boo Boo Child" definitely counts as one. After appearing on one episode, the audience instantly fell in love with her due to her extremely optimistic personality and her mother's odd coupon-saving redneck lifestyle. It's gotten to the point where she now has her own show (''Here Comes Honey Boo Boo''). The ironic thing is, at first, most of the audience saw Honey Boo Boo's mom as a terrible mother (most notably feeding her child "Go Go Juice", a mixture of Mountain Dew & Red Bull, and bringing a wiffle bat to pageant practice). However, as the show continues, it's clear that there are MANY ''much'' worse parents out there.
** Mackenzie Meyers probably counts, a sarcastic sharp-tongued little girl, who had Ashley Tisdale play her in a [[http://idolator.com/6028671/ashley-tisdale-funny-or-die-toddlers-tiaras-spoof Funny or Die parody of the show]].
** Also Cassadee's family prompted a whole new series too: ''Cheer Perfection''; where the moms tend to be worse, because they act like they're on a soap opera.

* HomeschooledKids: A family from New Jersey with two homeschooled kids, Riley and Bob, was profiled on the show. They definitely ranked among the weirdest families shown on the show. Notable for the mom saying she had the little girl dance and sing on the bar at Applebee's followed by an audible [[FlatWhat Flat What]] from a producer off-camera. Watch the clip [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyDbAx9HZCw here]].
* IsntItIronic: In one commercial for the show, they play the Music/LadyGaga song "Born This Way", a song about being fine with the way you are. Meanwhile, in the commercial footage, little girls prance around with UncannyValleyMakeUp, dyed hair/hair extensions, false eyelashes, etc.
* ItsAllAboutMe: The contestant interviews at the beginning of the show introducing the girls usually contain some variation of this, said either by the contest herself or her mother.
* LittleMissSnarker: Every so often, the show profiles a girl who wants no part in the pageants and responds with blazing, full force sarcasm.

* RealityShowGenreBlindness: Comes in two flavors:
** The more common variant is that many of the mothers seem to think that they're doing their daughters a favor by putting them on TV, unaware that the ManipulativeEditing is designed to throw the entire process of pageants into the worst light possible. Carley's mother Melissa is the prime example of this. Her whispered threats to her daughter ("you're going to be a very sorry girl; we are on national television; everyone is going to see this") were helpfully subtitled by the production team so that the entire audience could see just how terrible a mother she was.
** The less common variant is when a child, usually because they are new to the pageant scene, is [[HopelessAuditionees woefully under-prepared]] and both the girl and her mother has no idea what they're doing. Given that its easy to figure out what the pageant basics are (dress, hairstyle, makeup, and routines) just by watching a handful of episodes, its not clear why a mom would apply to be on the show, let alone enter her kid in a pageant, without the right kind of dress or without practicing a routine.
* SeriousBusiness: To the parents, the pageants themselves. Quite often, they take it a bit too far. Multiple parents have claimed to spent upwards of tens of thousands of dollars. They could have put their kids through a year of college with that kind of cash.
* SplitPersonality: Two girls so far have showcased one. "Tootie" was a ten year old's, and she seemed weird, but mostly benign. Carly, on the other hand, developed "Darla" who has a [[TearJerker/ToddlersAndTiaras whole section]] on the TearJerker page because she's clearly a coping mechanism for handling Carly's pushy StageMom.

** Mia, who wore the Madonna cone bra costume.
** Remember Paisley, whose mom got in trouble with viewers for letting her wear the prostitute dress from PrettyWoman? In her latest routine she ''rips off her skirt'' to showcase underwear/bikini bottom and garters. ''and she won''. Yes, the skirt was designed for that.

** One episode profiled a family with two children, an older girl, Alaska, and a younger boy, Braxton. After the mom raved about how beautiful and successful her son was, she had this to say about her daughter "I hope [she] can learn to accept failure."

** The Sterling twins had the most obvious, and heartbreaking, example of this. The mother obviously favored one of the identical girls, flat out stating she was prettier and looked more like her mother. What's even worse is that the family actually had ''five'' daughters, but the mother only paid attention the one twin. Thankfully, the dad had no problem with pulling "the favorite" out of the pageant for acting like a brat.
** In "Me and My Pet", a mother said, "I think Alycesaundra has won something bigger than the ''other child''". She also gave one girl a cute little lamb for her routine, and "the other child" got a turkey. She stated that Giovanna, "the other child", is a "mean sourpuss" with "no personality."
