Honey Boo Boo smudges make-up at 101°F heat
Honey Boo Boo and her family posed for a photoshoot in the hilarious season finale of reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo to air on Wednesday night.
Things don’t quite go to plan as the gang take part in a family portrait, with the 101°F heat causing tempers to flair as Honey Boo Boo smudges her make-up off and ends up resembling “a football player”.
The action kicks off with the Thompson crew dressing up for what is meant to be some fun in the sun, including the pageant hopeful sporting a pink floral frock and gold clips in her blonde hair.
Mother June Shannon even turns a little philosophical as she is seen telling the camera: “Beauty comes from within. If you’ve got a great personality and everything, then it shines through to the outside.
“It doesn’t matter. Big, small, little… beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Skinny, fat, it don’t matter.”
Father Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson then muses over his choice of outfit, oblivious to the comedic deadpan delivery, saying: “I just went casual, I’m not the dress-up type – unless it’s a funeral.”
However, things soon take a turn for the worse as the soaring heat fails to impress anyone.
Precocious Honey Boo Boo, real name Alana Thompson, is seen pinching a water bottle from her mother while June Shannon is still drinking, with the cheeky child claiming she thought the family matriarch had finished sipping.
The seven-year-old then grows irritable and very tetchy, bemoaning “the heat drains me”, before rubbing her eyes and being told she resembles “a football player” after her eye make-up smudges.
June Shannon also rather unattractively says: “Man, I’m taking a bath in my own sweat.”
Another drama to unfold in the episode sees Honey Boo Boo gearing up for a big pageant, before plans change as sister Anna Chickadee goes into labor, and the arrival of baby Kaitlyn is captured on camera.
The season finale of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo airs on Wednesday at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on TLC.
