Sugar Bear from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo

Honey Boo Boo’s baby-daddy Mike Thompson seems to have managed the art of sleeping sitting up while maintaining his sanity among all the other women in his household. So how does “Sugar Bear” bring home the bacon for beautimous Mama June and the rest of the family? Let’s investigate and properly redneckognize our leading man!

In the premiere episode June casually mentions that Mike works 7 days a week as he loads up into his truck. So where does Mike work? According to his Facebook page, the hardest working man in Middle Georgia show business works for Snowco General Contractors.

“I work for snowco general contractors in mcintrye for almost 8 yrs I work in the chalk mines and love it”

According to the official website for Wilkinson County, GA, kaolin mining is the chief industry of the region:

Kaolin mining and processing is the principal industry in Wilkinson County. The valuable white clay is used in many manufacturing products including paper, paint, rubber, make-up and medicines.

Those train tracks you see running almost through his living room make their way through the region primarily for that “white gold.”
