As reality show pioneers, the cast of Jersey Shore has collected a lot of knowledge and wisdom over the course of its three-year reign. So how better to use all that know-how than by imparting it unto their rightful heiress: the star of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

When The Situation, Ronnie, and Pauly D stopped by E! to promote Season 6 (premiering October 4), each of the boys offered their own advice for Alana Thompson (Honey Boo Boo’s real name), age 7.

“I would tell her to have a good support system and try to be grounded," says The Situation. "All of us have a good system when we come home where there's family and friends and what not to ground us to make sure that we stay true to ourselves." Spoken like a wise man.

“Run with it, run with it, run with it!” advises Pauly. “Embrace it! Embrace it and go for it.” Though not very specific, we have a feeling Honey Boo Boo will understand.

Leave it to Ronnie to come up with the most serious thought. “She gets the same feedback we got,” he says. "You know, 'Look at these crazy people! What are they doing?' Enjoy it while you can… Make the best of it."

But Snooki better watch out, because Ronnie has a feeling that Honey Boo Boo might be taking over her guidette throne. “She [could] be like the new Snooki,” he says.

And you know what? He may be right!

Jersey Shore Season 6 will premiere on Thursday, October 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
