I don't know how this show could even use the word beauty. It should use the word "artificial". The children do not even look like themselves after being subjected to false finger nails, wigs, eyelashes, tans, hair extensions, and over the top makeup. Have I left anything out? Painting 20 year old faces on children is almost obscene. I saw one mother even put false toe nails on her daughter. I can't help remembering one mother who prayed with her two little girls, both contestants, before their pageant that they would bring home a crown. She mentioned bringing home a crown twice during her so-called prayer. I, too, believe that the parents love crowing to family and friends when their children win something. Most of the children get so tired. The show got truly stupid after some parents did all the expressions, movements and prancing around for their children to copy. They did everything except get up on the stage themselves. Apparently the pageant people don't care what goes on as long as they get their entrance fees.
