Want a recipe for disaster? Combine a bunch of crazed stage moms, their eager-for-approval children, Danny Bonaduce, and the promise of a $50,000 cash prize and an entertainment contract and put it on camera.

The kids did everything from singing and dancing and acting to having themselves "branded" for Hollywood—that is, their parents were asked to come up with a "brand" for their child's image, like a product or something. That's right. Like, actually comparing their child to selling a product. But hey, they know their kid's a star, so it's totally OK, right?
