(booming sound)
Male voiceover: (whispers) Exclusive.
(lively music)
Makenzie's mom: We'll grab it.
Makenzie: (cries loudly)
No, I know how [they're putting it]!
Juana: When Makenzie was 8,
uh, we had to pull her out of home school
so she can focus on the pageants.
Beauty pageants is what
Makenzie lives for.
It's her passion.
Yes, Makenzie still does compete
in the 5 to 7-year-old group
but we feel that she really does
shine in this particular group.
Makenzie: Woman, you are driving me nuts.
My name is Makenzie.
I'm 25 and 3/4 and I'm
still competing today.
Angel: 25, huh?
That's a little old.
Isn't at that point there's
like a special Olympics
for pageants?
Judith: A real freak of nature that one,
uh, gallivanting around with
her weird body and face.
Makenzie: (blows raspberries)
Juana: Okay, come on just
a few sprays on your chest
and then we could put on your [child gear]
Makenzie: Oh, oh, I'm not
putting that thing on.
I'm sorry.
I can't.
Juana: She's been in 5,000
pageants and won 3,213 crowns.
It makes it all worth it.
Makenzie: Gross!
Ni-ni tastes like [unintelligible]
Juana: [unintelligible]
Ahhhh! (cries loudly)
Pageant host: Please welcome
our little darling dream angels,
our Little Miss USA pageant contestants.
(lively music)
Makenzie: Mama!
Where's my Ni-ni?
Juana: I got it here baby.
It's for later.
It's okay come here, come on, come on.
No, no, come on, [let's
not faint] come on.
No, no, no, no.
Makenzie: Get, get!
Get out of my practice space.
(Hound Dog by Elvis Presley song)
Amberlee: I am not worried
about this competition at all.
Look at that face, she
cannot not be happy.
Are you happy?
(Yodelayheehoo music)
Juana: These parents who complain
about paying for higher education,
try paying 200 grand on pageants.
Female: I've spent $300,000
over the last 7 years,
uh, priming my daughterm,
classes, costumes, make-up,
false teeth, false eyes.
(American Girl by Tom Petty
& the Heartbreakers song)
(lively music)
Makenzie: She needs to
lose some serious weight.
Aubrey's mom: Aubrey Ana
loves doing pageants.
Don't you sweetheart?
How much?
(Roxanne by The Police song)
(Ready to Go by Little Cowboy song)
Juana: As Makenzie grew, some
of the judges were concerned
that Makenzie's outfits
were too promiscuous.
But when she was younger, they were cute?
Host pageant: And without further ado,
our next little Miss USA pageant winner is
(drum roll)
Makenzie: (screams)
Juana: Whoo!
That's right.
Suck it, ladies!
Juana and Makenzie: (screams with joy)
Juana: Oh yeah!
This is why we do what we do.
Makenzie: Ni-ni.
(screams loudly)
