Here Comes Honey Boo returns for a second season on Wednesday, June 17 -- and by the looks of it, the Georgia-based family is still crazy as ever! In the premiere episode, matriarch June "Mama" Shannon decides to take her four daughters -- Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, Anna "Chickadee" Shannon, Jessica "Chubbs" Shannon and Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson -- to meet some of their favorite professional wrestlers.
June explains that her husband, Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, has been working security for the local wrestling events "for many years."
"Being backstage is awesome 'cause I can show off all my butt-kicking moves," says 7-year-old pageant queen Alana. She then demonstrates her skills for the professional wrestlers. "Y'all can use it in the match to knock out people," she tells them.
