Admit it: you've always wanted to get an insider's look at the competitive world of high-stakes beauty pageants. And now Bravo is pulling back the curtain on the lives of six of these ultra-competitive women.
Our new series, Game of Crowns, follows beauty queens on the path to glory—and all the pain and suffering associated with botox, sky-high-heels, hip-hugging gowns, coaching, teeth whitening, tanning...and camel toe? Watch a sneak peek at the series (set to premiere in July) below.
So...who are these beauty queens? Meet the cast below.
