Pageant addicts will gravitate toward this show, but even those who've had their fill of Miss America-like contests will find much to like here. The show's messages about body image are refreshing, and the finalists have hearts of gold -- they're so open about the daily prejudices they face that it's nothing short of illuminating. It's also very inspiring to see their confidence soar on stage.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
