Honey Boo Boo Child Net Worth:
Reality TV celebrity and child beauty competition Honey Boo Boo Child has a net worth of $400,000. On TLC’s reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, her family earned $2.75 million in pay for their services on the show (2012–2014). “Toddlers and Tiaras” (2012–2013), a TLC reality series that followed several child pageant hopefuls and their families as they prepare for competition, brought Alana Thompson to national attention. In 2017, Alana starred in her mother’s TLC series, “Mama June: From Not to Hot,” which aired from 2017 to 2020 after “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” finished.
Thompson was granted her own program on TLC, despite the fact that “Toddlers and Tiaras” had a lukewarm response from critics and various children’s welfare groups. “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” was the spin-off series that followed Alana and her mother, June “Mama June” Shannon, as they competed in pageants.
On the other side of the pageant world was Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson (her father), as well as her three older sisters (Lauryn, Jessica, and Anna), who had their own challenges to deal with, including teenage pregnancies. Criticism of the show from some who believe it exploited the family and celebrated an unhealthy lifestyle has been substantial. When Mama June was shown with a man who had reportedly assaulted one of her daughters, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” was discontinued after season four. Several episodes shot for season five of Honey Boo Boo were shown as a TLC special titled “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo: The Lost Episodes” in 2017.
Thompson was paid $50,000 for his appearance on “Dancing with the Star: Jr.,” which premiered on ABC in 2018. While competing, she was matched up with Tristan Ianiero, who was voted out in week 4. Additionally, Alana has appeared on the show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “The Doctors,” “The Wendy Williams Show,” “The Screen Junkies Show,” “Steve Harvey,” and “Good Morning America.” Among the “10 Most Fascinating People of 2012” by Barbara Walters, her family competed against the “Cake Boss” cast on “Family Feud” in 2013.
Thompson’s parents divorced in 2014, and Alana attended her father to his wedding to Jennifer Lamb in 2017. It was in 2015 that Alana and Lauryn worked with singer/songwriter Adam Barta to record the song “Movin’ Up,” which resulted in a phenomenon known as the “honey boo-boo bop.” In March 2019, Alana’s sister Lauryn, then 20, was granted legal guardianship of their mother, Mama June, after she and her boyfriend were found in possession of crack cocaine. Lauryn, Josh, and Alana were reportedly evicted from their house in April 2020 after falling $1,242 behind on their rent payments.
