Premise: Does Honey Boo Boo act any differently when she's not trying to live up to the expectations of others at freaky child beauty pageants? Viewers get the answers they're craving in this ``Toddlers & Tiaras'' spinoff, which profiles spunky 6-year-old Alana -- aka Honey Boo Boo -- away from her life as, in TLC's words, ``a Go-Go Juice-drinking beauty queen.'' Alana lives with her family in rural Georgia, a clan that includes stay-at-home mom June, chalk-mining dad Sugar Bear, and Alana's older sisters -- Lauryn Pumpkin, Jessica Chubbs and Anna Chickadee. They enjoy loud and crazy family get-togethers, four-wheeling through mud pits and -- again, in TLC's words -- ``picking up road kill for the family cookout.'' Pass the barbecue sauce!
