Honey Boo Boo and Co. Are the Nicest People in Reality TV

Say what you will about the controversial show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo: the Thompson clan at the center of TLC’s madcap backwoods reality show still remains perhaps the most genuine and nicest group of people on television, especially reality television. Whether it’s the titular Honey Boo Boo’s push for gay rights or the general positive attitude that flows through her veins like go-go juice, the show manages to portray those crazy folks down South as a sweet bunch of people. Take last night’s episode, for example, in which the family donated toys to a local organization that distributes gifts on Christmas; while plenty of critics slam the show for its low-brow sensibility, the folks in front of the camera have done nothing but keep their chins up and prove that they’re probably better than all of us combined.
