8. Lori Matthews (Toddlers & Tiaras, TLC, 2011)

The various stage moms on Toddlers & Tiaras tend to share one constant: Despite how much they push their children, the women truly believe that their kids are good enough to win whatever silly pageant they enter them in.

Lori Matthews, however, does not share that sentiment with both of her children. She rants and raves that her son, Braxton, is a shoe-in to win any pageant imaginable ("The only way I could see him not winning this pageant is if he fell over dead"), but when it comes to her daughter, Alaska, she's significantly less rant-y and rave-y. "We'll see how [Alaska] does," she says, "and, hopefully, she accepts defeat or, you know, failure, with a smile on her face." It's always great to know your parent thinks you have the potential to be a gracious loser.
