Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants is an eight-episode competition that featured multiple mother-daughter teams working together as pairs to win a beauty pageant competition. The show ran for eight episodes on The CW from December 12, 2007 to January 30 2008.
The competition was judged by Carson Kressley (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy), Shanna Moakler (Miss USA 1995 and a contestant on Dancing with the Stars) and television personality Cynthia Garrett.
Each pair attempted to brand a 'style' for their mother/daughter team via clothing and swimwear, create ways of expressing a point of view about issues in the world, and practice for the big pageant dance number. The prize package included a $100,000 cash award, a custom-designed platinum and diamond crown necklace, and tiaras.
The show was a production of Fox Television Studios, with creator/executive producer Laurie Girion (Cheerleader Nation, Last Comic Standing 2).
On May 13, 2008, The CW officially cancelled the series.
