Jump To Alana Thompson's Stats
Alana Thompson, also known as Honey Boo Boo, is an American television personality. She is best known from the hit shows ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ and ‘Toddlers & Tiaras’. Even though the shows delivered worldwide success, there was also a lot of controversy around them. Since Alana Thompson was only six years old when the first show started taping, many perceive the show as child exploitation.
Honey Boo Boo was born as the daughter of June Shannon and Mike Thompson. She also has three older siblings, Anna Shannon, Jessica Shannon and Lauryn Shannon. Her siblings and parents also played a considerable part in one of the series.
The first season of ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ was aired on August 8, 2012 and ran to October 26 of that same year. The series had a much success as controversy, so more seasons followed. The second season debuted on July 17, 2013 and ended on September 11 of that same year. The first episode obtained a whopping 1.6 rating for 18-49 demographics and resulted in approximately 2.2 million viewers.
However, the show was cancelled a few months ago when news surfaced that June Shannon was dating a man who was convicted of child molestation. Shannon’s eldest daughter later stated that she was the child who was molested by this man ten years earlier, causing a media uproar in the United States.
Next to various series, Alana Thompson also appeared in The Wendy Williams Show, The Tonight Show, Live with Kelly and Micheal, Good Morning America and many more.
