Fans of the child beauty pageant show Toddlers & Tiaras will have met Honey Boo Boo before. Six-year-old chubby blonde Alana Thompson from rural Georgia and her boisterous family made such an impression on that show that they earned a spin-off of their own. In a lot of ways, it is a nicer show than Toddlers & Tiaras, which always seems a bit creepy. The Thompsons may not be too bright but they love each other and do their best. Father Mike (Sugar Bear), 40, works "seven days a week" mining chalk, 140kg Mama June is the queen of couponing, saving money by hoarding rolls of toilet paper and other goods, and Honey Boo Boo has three older sisters, nicknamed Pumpkin, Chickadee and Chubbs.
