Already the season is proving to be a tough challenge for the sensitive little ones.
Back in August, Alana Thompson was observed crying when she left CBS Studios after a rehearsal.
But it might be worth it for the child star who reportedly has the potential of making as much as $130,000 on the show.
That's granted she makes it to the finale. Still, she reportedly received $50,000 already just for being on the show.
