  • I was more concerned with the mother of the twins who favored the one over the other and then the one she shoved aside happened to win and THEN she started paying attention to her. It was disgusting... people put their best face forward when in front of a camera and it makes me wonder how badly that child is treated when the cameras are not there!

  • I've seen the commercials for that show and won't watch it. Personally, I think that kids that age should not look like corner girls....putting it as nice as possible. It also kind of teaching that looks are the most important thing and winning is everything. What's going to happen in the real world when those kids grow up a little bit and they lose at something? They are not going to be able to deal with it appropriately.

  • Those little girls look like adults with all of that make up on. They go through great lengths to win those pageants. They have fake teeth and/or bleach their teeth, put on fake nails, etc. I think that a beauty pageant should be based off of real "natural" beauty because that is the beauty that they have before they "cake up" their faces with make up. What about those little girls self esteem. Girls these days seem to always have to compete with what "society" is saying is beautiful like being thin, having long hair, etc. Girls should feel comfortable in their own skin and work with the natural beauty they have.
