Leslie Ackerman is the mother of Payton Ackerman, and is often a part of the competition team as a guest. She has frequently complained that Abby has never made them permanent members of the competition team.
She is very upfront and vocal about her beliefs.
Leslie is not well liked by the other mothers. She especially fights with Christi. She also had frequently argued with Kelly, on whether Payton or Brooke were more deserving of a spot on the team.
Abby has said that for most of their history, Leslie has been respectful and a good customer; and unlike the other moms, she has been grateful for the opportunities given to her children.
