Michael Jackson -- Not Most Likely to Succeed

10/10/2009 8:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson might have been the "most creative" and "best dressed" ... but he wasn't the "most likely to succeed" -- at least according to his high school classmates.



An auction of MJ memorabilia took place yesterday in L.A., including his 1976 high school yearbook from Cal Prep in Encino, CA. In the yearbook, Michael was voted pretty much what everyone would have expected -- best dressed, most creative, shyest -- but NOT most likely to succeed.

That honor was reserved for one Scott Ashdown -- who's probably a perfectly nice person, but we've never heard of him.

Even though success is relative and money isn't everything -- can we get a recount for MJ?

Jacko Was A Wacko    

Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize??? Maybe the crazy idea some rabid fans had of giving it to MJ wasn't so crazy after all.

Excuse me, but I thought Michael Jackson was tutored, he tried to go to school when he was young but the mobs kept chasing him so he had to be tutored. I think TMZ is lying about this one.

I read through the posts and there are some that didn't know that Michael attended a high school. I saw a clip on youtube of Don Cornelius interviewing MJ on Soul Train back in the day. He asked him if he went to school and MJ's reply was yes. Don proceeded to ask him to name other stars that went there and he mentioned Danny Bonaduce. It seems as though he may have been bullied by Danny. It was a cute interview.
