Born Alana Thompson on August 28, 2005, in McIntyre, Georgia, Honey Boo Boo made her presence known when she was featured on an episode of TLC's Toddlers & Tiaras in early 2012. Her unrestrained persona and uncontrollable word vomit grabbed the attention of audiences across the country, escalating Honey Boo Boo's newfound stardom over night.
Following her cameo, Honey Boo Boo's popularity continued to flourish and she soon became a pop culture icon. She was such a sensation that TLC offered her and her family their own reality series, called Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. The show debuted in August 2012 and averages 2.3 million viewers per episode.
Honey Boo Boo is best known for being a beauty queen, guzzling down 'go-go-juice' (a mixture of Red Bull and Mountain Dew), going extreme coupon shopping at The Piggly Wiggly with the family, collecting road-kill the family can later thrown on the barbeque, and washing her muddy pet pig, Glitzy, in the mud.
Her most famous lines to spill out of her mouth include:
"I'll stop passing gas when I'm dead."
"You better redneckognize!"
"I'm Alana, I'm 6, and I'm a beauty queen."
"A dollar makes me holler, Honey Boo Boo."
"I'm gonna win the whole pageant! [Honey Boo Boo came in 4th place]"
"Those other girls must be crazy, if they think they're gonna beat me, honey boo-boo child!"
"I rocked my Daisy Duke. . . I showed my belly to the judges . . . Look at this big thing... They don't know a good thing when they see it."
"Granted, I ain't the most beautimous out the box, but a little paint on this barn, shine it back to its original condition. Cause it shines up like it's brand new."
"It's called a biscuit because it looks like a biscuit, ya know, when it opens up, and ummmm… You know, it does. It looks like a biscuit. If you look at a biscuit, and if it's cooked right, you know, like in, like a, like Hardee's or something, you can..."
"When my belly hurts, it's usually gas. Or too many chicken nuggets."
"I hope I don't see a bunch of wedgies at the waterpark. Vagiggle jaggles gonna be hanging out, though."
"Here comes the kwaaaaaaahhhhhhnnnnn!"
