Here Comes Honey Boo Boo: Our Five Favorite Scenes in Celebration (and Yes, Anticipation) of the Season Finale
Here comes the finale of the show everyone loves to hate (and hates to love).
Tonight, Honey Boo Boo Child Alana Thompson, along with her Mama June, Sugar Bear, and sisters will likely shock, confuse, and disgust an audience of millions that love/hates the reality show, which follows the Thompson family and their pageant shenanigans in rural McIntyre, Georgia.
A second season is definitely in the works, according to TLC, and with any luck, the Thompson family will actually make a little money while extreme couponing, playing bingo, and supporting Honey Boo Boo's pageant dreams. There have been countless moments that made us cringe, sigh, and yeah, sure, even smile -- but only a little. Here are our five favorite moments to look back on before checking out the finale tonight.

June Shannon, aka "Mama June" is an extreme couponer/organized hoarder who can't leave the grocery store without buying toilet paper. She says she's addicted to shopping and ultimately getting stuff for free to save money for Honey Boo Boo's pageant dresses, coaches, wigs, and make-up artists. And she also says saving money is better than (dump) mattress mambo. Can't say we blame her.
We enjoyed Mama June's sketti recipe (and Honey Boo Boo's performance) so much that we tried making it ourselves. Check out thesketti results on our sister blog, Chow Bella
3. Shopping at the Dump
By eGame View Because we're all cheap and thrifty at heart, the Thompson's trip to the dump was undeniably charming -- until they started looking for mattresses.
Add Red Bull to that lemonade and Honey Boo Boo might have another variety of her signature Go-Go Juice. (Oh boy.)
Mike Thompson, aka "Sugar Bear" loves to take the family out to dinner and makes a big occasion of taking the clan out to a BBQ joint down the road. Honey Boo Boo of course orders three main dishes ("Why can't my sides be meat?") and we were left nauseous and, once again, falling in love with the family we're glad isn't our own.
Catch the finale tonight on TLC at 10/9 Central.
