The 7-year child beauty pageant contestant Honey Boo Boo and her reality TV show, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," are going global.

The show, seen on the Discovery/TLC Network, will now air in Europe, Australia and Latin America.

In fact, TLC tells the New York Post the show is already No. 3 in Poland.

The show focuses on the spunky Honey Boo Boo, who's real name is Alana Thompson, and her family who lives in McIntyre, Ga. There's mom, June, dad, Sugar Bear, Alana's three older sisters and openly gay "Uncle Poodle."

According to the New York Post, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" posed a challenge for overseas viewing since the show has its own language and already includes subtitles to explain Alana's sayings like "A dolla makes me holla!" and "You better redneckognize."
