Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

Pageant Place offers a unique behind-the-scenes look at what life is like for pageant winners once they've been crowned. But most of the show's drama comes from the jealous arguments and catty behavior that occasionally erupts among the women once their crowns come off. (Not surprising, Conner's past behavior is sometimes central to these arguments.)

The series is an obvious attempt to remake the image of the Miss Universe Organization by exploiting past scandals and making entertainment out of personal conflict. But, while these pageant winners aren't perfect, they do try to carry themselves according to the values that the Miss Universe Organization is trying to reclaim. As a result, while the show does deal with some mature topics, it's pretty mild viewing compared to its reality-TV contemporaries.
