Former Classmates Discovered What The Prettiest Girl They Went To School With Is Like Today, And It's Wild
Recently, a few former classmates discovered what the prettiest girl they went to school with was up to today and shared their updates here, for better or for worse. Here are a few more examples:
1."I always ended up being best friends with the prettiest girl in school, but it backfired on me when I had a crush on this guy who had a crush on her and asked her to prom. She said no but wanted him in the group. I said no, and she didn’t care at all. She ended up slow dancing with him right in front of me and I ended up crying. I never spoke to her again."
2."My wife (I'm posting under her account; had to wrestle the phone away from her when we saw this article) grew up in a small Nebraska town and hated being known as the pretty girl, even though she clearly was. She entered a beauty contest basically on a dare her senior year; ended up winning first place at the state level, third place nationally; and was offered a modeling contract. She was a successful fashion model for 20-plus years, and I've always contended that the only reason she didn't achieve 'supermodel' status is that it was never her ambition in life."
3."The most popular girl in my elementary school wasn't exactly a bully but was definitely entitled, had a clique of popular pretty girls into which few were accepted, and used the power of her popularity in negative ways. Years later, my mom let me know she is her pedicurist. It always makes me smile knowing she had to groom my mother's gnarly feet."
4."One of the pretty girls from my school is now a Ravens cheerleader, and I wasn’t a pretty girl and I work in marketing, so…yeah."
5."The pretty girl from mine is now a diehard anti-vax Trumplican who does MLM."
6."She was sweet and caring, and everyone loved her (except the other 'pretty' girl). We met through a girl I was kind of friends with, and I ended up confiding in her about being bullied and feeling really down on myself. She ended up becoming a great friend after that. We still keep in touch, and she is with a great guy and has two ADORABLE kids with him. I'm really happy for her."
7."The brat 'pretty girl' from my high school is a child psychologist. She specializes in bullying...she had tons of firsthand experience, as she was the meanest person who ever lived. It's a sick world."
8."I had to stop and think for a minute about who the prettiest girl in my high school was. I went to an all-girl high school, so on a day-to-day basis, that didn’t matter as much. But then I remembered. She looked like Serena van der Woodsen/Blake Lively. I can’t think that I ever talked to her in high school. She wasn’t rude, as far as I could tell; we just didn’t have any classes together or any friends in common. I don’t know what she is up to today, but many years ago I was flipping through a copy of the Knot magazine and saw a feature story about her wedding."
9."A girl from my class left school early to be in show business and was on a long-running CW show."
10."The prettiest girl in my school was a year younger and in the same exclusively small, all-girl show choir I was in. The group had been around almost as long as the school, had a lot of legacy members (whose siblings had been in it as well, including this chick’s older sister), and was renowned throughout the state, especially for our winter/Christmas/holiday season traveling shows throughout the DMV."
11."The pretty girl from my high school is Cindy Crawford. She did pretty well."
12."She was a bully. Last time I looked her up on Facebook, she was waiting tables at Applebee's and was dating some personal trainer/wannabe influencer, so I’m not really sure how her life is going otherwise."
13."I'm doing awesome today. Thank you for asking! I was in high school in the early 2000s, and I don't remember who was considered 'the prettiest girl'/the most popular girl. So I'm going to say it's me."
14."She's a paraprofessional at her kids' school. She's still just as nice as ever."
15."She was a condescending and cliquish bully. She married a member of the basketball team who went pro outside of our country. They had three kids and quickly divorced. She had to start over (career, new location, etc.)."
16."She was a close friend. I was the 'sweet one' of the clique. She was horribly snobby in elementary school and mellowed out in middle school. By high school, she was kind. She is smart, and more than anything she wanted to be valedictorian, but she was fully ensconced in her social life, where she broke lots of hearts, both of guys and the gals who had crushes on the guys she went out with. She got into a good school. Prom king wasn’t nearly as driven as she was, so they ended up breaking up a year out of high school. She got a good job upon graduating, but that status thing…she got married way before any of us and is a stay-at-home mom now. I tried to keep in touch, but distance and life got in the way. But I’m sure if I were on Facebook, we would be connected."
17."The most popular one is an attorney, and she's always been a good person. I liked her in high school and I like her now."
18."She was fake and is still really rich because her family owns an elite restaurant business here. Almost everyone who studied with her in my class hates her now except for the boys who were deep into the elite way of life just like her, some well known for being part of corrupt families."
19."One of them was my best friend until she became a bully. So I stopped being friends when she did, and I know she is now married with three kids and a dope of a husband. She has a small home business, but it is not very successful."
20."A bully then, and she is a multimillionaire business owner now. It makes me sick to see people kiss her ass now when she was vile to everyone and they all hated her."
21."Well, I'm not sure she ever thought she was the prettiest in the school, but I did! She graduated near the top of the class, got a PhD in a science, works as a researcher. Never really settled down, just bumped around in relationships that didn't go anywhere. She got older, the guys she dates stayed the same age. She's in her 40s and still very hot."
