There�s More Than A Crown At Stake Mother & Daughter Duos Compete For Fame & Fortune

Fame-hungry mothers and daughters form fashion teams in �Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants� (2008). Carson Kressley of �Queer Eye for the Straight Guy� (2003-2007) notoriety, alongside Miss USA winner Shanna Moakler serve as judges, with the former providing Simon Cowell-like criticism to contestants, while Kressley takes on the Paula Abdul persona.

Fame-hungry mothers and daughters form fashion teams in �Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants� (2008). Carson Kressley of �Queer Eye for the Straight Guy� (2003-2007) notoriety, alongside Miss USA winner Shanna Moakler serve as judges, with the former providing Simon Cowell-like criticism to contestants, while Kressley takes on the Paula Abdul persona.

Together, mothers and daughters of varying ages must give birth to a unique and profound fashion style, mixing and matching different clothing to do so. With a $100,00 cash award and matching lush necklace and crown at stake, participants resort to cutthroat tactics to secure their place in reality TV history. Their ultimate goal, however, is to gain national recognition and launch their own successful careers in modeling and fashion.

Team members will spend a total of eight weeks in a large mansion, where they will prepare for challenges including photo shoots, talent competitions, smiling skills, and much more. Each week one unfortunate pair will be eliminated, and their sashes confiscated. In one case a mother and daughter flee from judges before their sashes can be taken; in their minds at least, they will always be the winners.

Fans of �Showbiz Moms and Dads� (2004) will likely feel at home with the program, whose executive producer is none other than �Cheerleader Nation�s� (2006) Laurie Girion. In the first episode the duos must select their team names and trademark styles, in hopes of leaving a positive first impression on the judges. Aspiring young modeling queens should not resist tuning in.
