This comment will send me straight to hell but, if they were gonna give a child a spinoff couldn't they have found one that was atleast cute?
Seriously! Not even cute, really; couldn't they have picked one who was interesting? Intelligent? Endearing in any way? Alana is just a dull, obnoxious little girl. I can think of four pageant kids from these shows off the top of my head who would make for interesting reality shows, who have great personalities, nice families, and in some instances, enough crazy to add flavor. (The girls I'm thinking of are MaKenzie, Jacklynn, Jayne and Paisley. Mak is a notorious fan favorite with a truly unique character; Jacklynn's family is slightly off the wall in a way that doesn't make you point at laugh at them like Honey Boo Boo's family; Jayne is startlingly intelligent and hilarious; and Paisley is adorable and endearing, with a slightly crazy but self-aware mom who is pretty damn determined to get her daughter "discovered." Of course, with the exception of Paisley's mom, the rest of them seem too smart to think giving a little kid a reality show is in any way a good idea.)
I can't imagine anyone watching this show for any reason other than to point and laugh. It's just depressing, that this is what's on television - on a channel called The Learning Channel, no less!
