TLC’s series “TODDLERS AND TIARAS” is back with even more glitter, glamour and drama than ever before. This new supersized season revisits the cutthroat world of child beauty pageants – all the pretty and the not so pretty – revealing how the circuit has evolved over the last few years. From luxurious beauty treatments and private jets to relaxation exercises and acting classes, the stakes are higher for these young competitors and their fierce mothers who will do whatever it takes to win.
The spray tans and “flippers” that won a contestant the Ultimate Grand Supreme in the past are just the baseline today. The new top prize, the Mega Ultimate Grand Supreme, has pageant parents sparing no expense to hire professional coaches that are now a must-have to win. Some parents pay in the thousands of dollars to secure the most sought after pageant professionals. The coaches price tags come with even more demands and expectations to win.
Leading the pack are coaches, frenemies and rivals Cambrie of “Cambrie’s Court,” and Jaimie of the “Sassy Supremes.” They go head-to-head, and hair-to-hair competing for the top prizes in the pageant circuit. A proud “glitz-baby,” Cambrie won her first pageant at age 2. She lives and breathes pageants and expects her girls to do the same. Cambrie’s intense training methods command a premium price. Jaimie has competed in pageants since she was born and it’s her life. She does whatever it takes to make her girls shine on stage even using a portable spray tan machine to get her girls to “get brown and get a crown.” The competition is fierce and no one wants to lose.
