In addition to her love of extreme couponing, June "Mama" Shannon is an avid Bingo player.

On Wednesday's episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Mama teaches daughter Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 6, how to play Bingo. "Bingo is a sport. It's a way to calm me down and relax," Mama explains. "Most I ever won at Bingo was a thousand dollars."
