TLC announces "Watch 'n Sniff" event during the upcoming season premiere
What does barbecue road kill smell like? Have you wondered just how deadly Mama June's burps are?
TLC wants you to know.
The cable network announced that it's offering viewers the chance to "watch 'n sniff" during the season premiere on July 17.
“We couldn’t think of a more fitting way to kick off the new season than with two Watch ‘n Sniff episodes,” said TLC general manager Amy Winter in a statement. “The family loves coming up with crazy games and hijinks, so now our audience gets to play along with one. It’s an experience they certainly won’t want to miss!”
Intrigued? Here's how it works: The network is distributing nearly 10 million scent cards nationwide, including the July 5 People magazine and July 12 Us Weekly. Select Time Warner Cable retail stores nationwide also will carry the cards nationwide, and street teams will pass out the cards in major cities.
And if you don't feel like leaving the comfort of your couch, viewers can participate in the "Watch 'n Sniff" experience online at the "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" official website and a chance to win $5,000.
One of TLC's most successful series, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's" misadventures in McIntyre, Ga., captured the attention of an average 2.3 million viewers per episode last fall.
