Ian Somerhalder or Mama June: Which Southerner Is Older?
We have to admit that Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’s Mama June don’t exactly run in the same circles, but you’d better redneckognize that both of these TV personalities are from the South!
June Shannon is from McIntyre, Georgia (where the hit TLC show is filmed) while Ian is from Covington, Louisiana. In fact, The Vampire Diaries shoots in Atlanta — which is at least in the same state as McIntyre (why aren’t these two besties?).
Ian started out as a model and has transitioned into being just a drop-dead gorgeous actor, playing Damon Salvatore on TVD while Mama June (aka The Coupon Queen) rose to fame on TLC’s Toddlers & Tiaras before getting her own spin-off with her daughter Alana (Honey Boo Boo) and her family.
So which one of these Southern beauties is older? Make your wagers and then click through to see if you were correct!
