Another banner day in the pageant world!
The International Fresh Faces heads back to Georgia for its Circus theme pageant. “Beauties Under the Big Top” has NO rules for Circus Wear and no rules is what they follow. What rule they should have followed is to steam out the wrinkles in that horrible backdrop.
First up we meet 22-month old Oliviana who is a “pageant ninja” – when people sign up for pageants, they want to know if she’s going to be in it because she normally sweeps the awards. Oli’s dad is her pageant coach, dress designer and baby-talk expert…he is seriously channeling Ava’s pageant dad David. Pageant dad says he thinks about pageants “all day long” and would like to open his own studio. Then you probably should get your shit together and make sure your kid’s shoes fit BEFORE you go to the pageant. Who knew kids grew?
Next up is the four billionth girl in the U.S. named Katlyn, 6, who says she’s sassy but really she’s more temperamental. She threw a few fits here and there and sometimes it seemed that for a 6 year old, she didn’t really have a solid grasp on things – like the littlest thing threw her off – but that could just be our old friend and foe, editing. Mom calls her spoiled and rotten and a child who “likes to get her way.” Wonder if there is something that could curb those meltdowns and outbursts? Like discipline and not putting up with that shit.
And finally, we me Alivia, 4, whose mother says she was SUCH a happy kid until she turned 2 and it was all downhill from there. Alivia likes to boss her mom, doesn’t like to practice and basically thinks she has things in the bag because like most American kids, has had her entire life handed to her on a silver platter. Alivia’s “Britney Spears/lion tamer” routine leaves a lot to be desired and not just because she beats her stuffed tigers like red-headed stepchildren.
Judges are too nice, kids are not prepared, Alivia’s hair in beauty looks like a beehive from a 60s musical, and there are a lot of kids who just need naps and not caffeine and Pixie Stix.
