Honey Boo Boo also known as Alana Thompson, first rose to fame appearing on the reality series, “Toddlers and Tiaras” on TLC. The show debuted in 2009, and follows various child pageant participants and their families, as they get ready for competition.
The show has garnered very mixed reviews, and has earned the ire of multiple children’s advocacy groups. It is currently in its 5th season. One of the most popular pageant children to appear on the show, Honey Boo Boo was offered her own show on TLC. The “spin-off” series, entitled “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”, follows Alana, age 6, and her mother as they navigate the pageant circuit. It also focuses on her older siblings, who are not involved in pageant life, and have issues of their own, including teen pregnancy.
