PROFILE: George Michael Bluth
George Michael is the only son of Michael Bluth.
We take a look at George Michael, son of the chairman of the Bluth Company, in the eighth part of our nine-part series profiling Newport Beach’s own Bluth family.
If there’s one flaw in George Michael Bluth, it’s his drive to succeed. It’s a trait he may have learned from his father Michael to whom George Michael attributes much of his success.
In school, George Michael has a solid A average. Nevertheless, receiving an A- on a recent test made the 13-year-old even more driven to study harder.
After school, George Michael also enjoys drama, and was named understudy in a recent school performance of Much Ado About Nothing.
George Michael was recently granted an interview at the prestigious Milford Academy, although his chances of matriculation may have been dealt a harsh blow when the academy’s founder, Earl Milford, was found missing, and George Michael’s uncle, G.O.B., became the chief suspect in Milford’s murder.
George Michael also works at the family company’s frozen banana stand, a Newport Beach landmark, where he was quickly promoted to Mr. Manager. But after a quirky accounting practice threatened this young manager’s ride to the top, George Michael allegedly torched the stand.
Things only got worse when George Michael was arrested for breaking into the permit office. Surveillance video tape obtained by The O.P. revealed that he had an accomplice in his cousin, Maeby Fünke, who fled the scene before police arrived.
Mae Fünke who also goes by the alias Maeby, is no stranger to crime, and may be responsible for corrupting the naïve young boy. According to a former inmate and flamer known as “T Bone,” Maeby—who received a ___ in math—was the unrepentant mastermind behind the shady accounting practices at the frozen banana stand. Sources also indicate that George Michael and Miss Fünke also attempted several times to sneak into a showing of the R-rated movie Les cousins dangereux at the local theatre.
