Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although this series about beauty pageant winners doesn't have the kind of over-the-top behavior typical of many other reality shows, some of the subject matter is probably still too mature for tweens and younger kids. There are discussions about the widely reported substance abuse problems of 2006 Miss USA Tara Conner, women appear in bikinis during photo shoots, and there's some cattiness -- but it's decidedly tame for MTV.
Is It Any Good?
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.
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.
