ET's got a first look at this week's 'Toddlers and Tiaras," which showcases the young divas decked out in glitzy cowboy-themed pageant wear.
The Rodeo Princess Pageant in West Virginia is for country girls and organizers call it "semi-glitz" because they don't want contestants going over the top -- as they do in most other pageants -- with heavy makeup, fake eyelashes, hair extensions and dark tanning. But this doesn't stop Heather -- mother of seven-year-old contestant Karmen -- from pushing those limits.
She says Karmen brings glitz to every pageant but confesses that her daughter's personality "has many layers." "I am an angel," Karmen says, but then adds: "Sometimes I am the devil." The young beauty queen adds that she's not intimidated by her competition: "I'm not nervous, cause the babies can't beat me."
One of those competitors is Lynsie, who proudly declares: "I'm seven years old and I'm a redneck beauty queen." When asked what that means, she says: "A redneck is a hillbilly girl." Her mother Jamie agrees: "She's a redneck. You don't have to be missing your teeth to be a redneck or live in the backwoods, it's just a state of mind."
Also in the competition is eight-year-old Kelci, who usually doesn't do glitz pageants but says she's "going to lasso myself a big crown this weekend." Her mother Kim says she teaches her daughter most of her pageant moves and admits the contests can be stressful for both of them. Kelci admits the competition will be fierce. "The biggest competition here today, that I know, is probably going to be Karmen," she says.
