Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana Thompson, is an American actress, beauty pageant, and reality television star. She rose to prominence for her appearances in the television series “Toddlers and Tiaras” and “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”. Since her appearance in the latter, she gained international popularity. Alana eventually became a social media superstar and internet celebrity. She is responsible for the creation of several viral videos, most of which were turned into memes and gifs.
How did Honey Boo Boo earn her net worth?
Primarily because of her appearances in “Toddlers and Tiaras” and “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”, Alana received opportunities to star in other shows that helped her earn thousands of dollars. She spent most of 2012 filming season five of “Toddlers and Tiaras”. The season began in January and ended in February 2013. Prior to that season, Alana made sporadic appearances in other seasons. Overall, she racked up more than $50,000 from starring in nearly 40 episodes.
In 2013, TLC was so intrigued by Thompson that they offered her and her mother a deal and this is how the show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” was created. The reality television project focuses entirely on Alana and includes appearances of her family members, mostly her mother. The show aired from August 2012 to August 2014 and was met with predominantly negative reviews. Among one of the things that received backlash was the “Go-Go Juice” (a mix of Red Bull and Mountain Dew) that June gives to Alana before her beauty pageants. Three years after it was canceled, a fifth unaired season was released in April 2017. In addition to national recognition, Alana and her mother earned well over $200,000.
