‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ preview: Bingo?

Everyone loves a good game of bingo, but there are not too may situations where you see someone playing it professionally in an attempt to try ad earn some extra cash for beauty pageants. However, that is what we are seeing Wednesday night on “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” in an episode that highlights a person that has become the series’ biggest star outside of Alana Thompson: “Mama” June Shannon.

In the video below, you can check out exactly what we are talking about here as June announces that she likes to play bingo in order to relax. As a matter of fact, she also has won as much as a thousand bucks taking part of this game which really goes even further when you are a family that uses extreme couponing to pay may of the grocery bills. Based on the video, it also looks like some of the other members of the family are starting to get in on June’s version of fun.

Is “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” in many ways completely and utterly ridiculous? The obvious answer here is “yes,” though we at the same time would be remiss if we did not say that we were oblivious as to why the show was popular. It’s comical in the same way that a sitcom is, and the one thing that it really has over these sort of shows is that you know that the people you are seeing here are in fact real, and not just people forced into reading lines on the page.
