What is Honey Boo Boo Child's Net Worth?

Honey Boo Boo Child is an American reality television star and child beauty contestant who has a net worth of $400,000. Also known as Alana Thompson, "Honey Boo Boo" rose to fame as a cast member on the TLC show "Toddlers and Tiaras," which followed various child pageant participants and their families as they get ready for competition. Thanks to her family's quirkiness, they were given several spinoffs, including "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," which aired 48 episodes over four seasons between 2012 and 2017, and "Mama June: From Not to Hot," which aired on TLC from 2017 to 2020.

TLC Salary

For their work on the TLC reality show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" (2012–2014), the Thompson family was paid a salary of $50,000 per episode. The family earned a total of $2.75 million during the show's run.

TV Fame

Alana Frances Thompson was born on August 28, 2005, in McIntyre, Georgia. She is the fourth daughter born to mother June "Mama June" Thompson and father Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson. Alana began to compete in pageants at a very young age, hence her appearance on the TLC series "Toddlers and Tiaras." The show garnered very mixed reviews and earned the ire of multiple children's advocacy groups.

Thompson, who was called "Honey Boo Boo Child" by her mother became famous for very quirky catch phrases. As a result, Thompson was offered her own show on TLC. The spin-off series, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," followed Alana and her mother, June "Mama June" Shannon, as they navigated the pageant circuit. It also focused on her father, Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, and her older sisters, Lauryn, Jessica, and Anna, who were not involved in pageant life, and have issues of their own, including teen pregnancy.

The show received considerable criticism from people who believe that it took advantage of the family and glorified an unhealthy lifestyle. "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" aired 55 episodes and was cancelled after season four when Mama June was spotted with a man who had allegedly molested one of her daughters. In 2017, TLC aired a few episodes that had been filmed for season five as a special called "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo: The Lost Episodes."
