Honey Boo Boo Wows the Crowd

“Honey Boo Boo” is the new toddlers and tiaras show that has its own series. It is about a Southern family that has a younger daughter in pageants. There are many controversies on if this show is bad or good. Honey Boo Boo’s realname is Alana Thompson. She is a six-year-old from McIntyre Georgia . She lives with her mom, June Shannon (Mama Bear); her Dad, David Michael Thompson (Sugar Bear);her sister, Anna Shannon (Chikadee); another sister, Jessica Shannon (Chubs) and her last sister, Lauryn Shannon (Pumpkin). Senior Megan Romo feels, “It puts a negative impact on the Southern perspective.” When asked if she’d like to be a part of their family she responded, “I would not want to be a part of the family, because I would be 800 pounds.” Lem Wheeles is very experienced with pageants because of his wife, who was Mrs. Alaska. He does not believe Honey Boo Boo is a very good pageant contestant. “No, she is terrible at pageants. I do not like glitz pageants, because it is all about appearance. I like pageants that are meaningful.” Senior Taylor Allen had only one word to describe it: “Gross.” Some people enjoy watching the show. Senior Cole Hamilton said, “It reminds me of my family, because I am from the South.” Senior Byron Lowe said, “It is my fourth-favorite show, and I am a huge fan. My favorite character is Mama Bear. My favorite quote is ‘A dollar makes me holla,’ said byHoney Boo Boo.” Lowe even knows the routine of her go-go dance, which is the dance Honey Boo Boo does to get pumped up before her pageants. He thinks the show is a good representation of the South, because he spends his summers there and knows what Southern people are like. Junior Mackenzie French said, “It is openly gross, but I think it is funny.” Senior Lili Melendez likes it “because the family is crazy, but entertaining. I would not want to be a part of the family though.” Senior Kimberly Germaine said, “It is my favorite show of all time and I love watching it. My favorite character is Pumpkin, because she has her own unique personality.” She has seen every episode and is a serious fan. She even would like to be in the show, because she is pursuing being famous, after being nominated for the “most likely to become famous” category in the Senior Superlatives. Germaine said when she has her own kids she is going to put them in pageants and hopes they willbe as good as Honey Boo Boo.
