Alana and her mother, June, have been become two of the more familiar Toddlers & Tiaras faces after a 2012 episode showed Alana drinking go-go juice before a competition. The drink, which worked her into a frenzy in front of the cameras, is a combination of Red Bull and Mountain Dew and had the pair working the talk show circuit earlier in the year to defend their caffeine consumption. Nicknamed Honey Boo Boo, Alana and her family, mother June, dad Sugar Bear and sisters Lauryn, Jessica and Anna, will be the focus of the series when the youngest daughter isn't competing in pageants.

I named my little pig Glitzy because I'm going to bring her to the glitz pageants and we're going to win it all! That's a girl name: Glitzy. We're gonna make it a girl pig, so he's gonna be a little gay.
It's not gonna be gay.
Yes it is, because we're making it a girl pig! And it's actually a boy pig!
Okay, but it's not gonna be gay.
Yes it is! You can't tell that pig what to do!
