No, these moms don’t ingest inedible substances, modify their bodies or stockpile rations for the apocalypse or the hell of it like their category brethren. But their propensity for putting false teeth, hair and eyelashes, tons of makeup and awfully grown-up costumes worth several mortgage payments on their little bitty kids helped Toddlers & Tiaras take our “Most Extreme” crown. The series made a minor star of pageant stand-out Eden Wood, and a pop culture phenomenon of Alana Thompson — AKA “Honey Boo Boo Child” — who scored herself her own TLC series even if she never took home the Grand Supreme crown.
An all-new season of Toddlers & Tiaras begins in December.
