* One contestant, [[FailOSuckyname SamiJo]], is only [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior a year old]]. Her mother said that the only reason she wanted a daughter is so that she could compete in pageants.

Added DiffLines:

* This show clearly demonstrates how some parents (Thank sweet mother of God so many parents aren't like this at all) try and attempt to live vicariously through their children in order to make up for some failure in the past, lack of being in a good place in the present, or to create a "legacy" where their prior victories are continued on through their children. For parents to attempt to have their 6 or 7 year old child (and if I understand the show correctly those're the OLDEST competitors) decked out in makeup, dresses that are about 10 years too old for them, and practice these ridiculous routines even though they should be doing what kids their age should be doing: BEING KIDS!!!!! Its a sobering thought to think that parents are not only willing to do this but get super competitive over these kinds of competitions.

** In one episode that featured them, Breanne threw a hissy-fit and won a lower prize than Ashlynn, who won two prizes but Breanne still bragged that she [[BlatantLies "beat"]] her sister. Uh, no, you lost. Big-time.

* "Me and My Pet": Alycesaundra's and Giovanna's mum constantly comments on how Alycesaundra is the "better one", admitted to pay $8,000 for a dress for her, gives her a cute little baby lamb for her pet routine, is furious when the judge pronounces her name wrong, is furious at her husband who "ruined Alycesaundra's performance" and states "I think Alycesaundra will do better than the OTHER ONE". Other one meaning Giovanna who is said to have "no personality", gets a turkey for her pet routine (although the family lives on a farm and have a plenty of other animals), and is completely ignored when she earns a "Queen" title. She throws a fit later on, which is again completely ignored by her mum since Alycesaundra got a "Supreme" title.
** Also a lot of Giovanna's "bad behavior" that the mom was constantly scolding her for was the fact that Giovanna clearly wasn't interested in even ''doing'' the pageant and was flat-out telling her mom so.

* Poor, poor Carley, whose mom Melissa dragged her aside several times an whispered threats ("the [=iPod=] will be gone", "you're going to be a sorry girl", "We're on television!") when Carley didn't want to keep practicing. Made worse by her mom's constant posturing for the camera with bright, wide smiles that made it all worse.

* Most viewers are annoyed whenever a child under the age of 1 1/2 wins, because they've seen girls perform talents and prance and at least ''do something'' but nope, baby in a pimped-out dress wins.
