Given his famous good looks and gold-medal genes — his father is Olympic legend Bruce Jenner — it’s hard to imagine a world in which Hills star Brody Jenner considers himself an "underdog," but the young hunk told OK! that’s precisely how he feels.

“I’ve always been the underdog because I dropped out of college at a young age,” Brody revealed to OK! in Atlantic City this weekend, where he was hosting the Saturday night party at Mixx at the Borgata Hotel & Casino. “I got flack from my stepdad [songwriter and producer David Foster] for doing that, but I wanted to be a musician, that’s what I strived to be.”

And considering his stepfather has worked with such giants of the music world as Celine Dion, Barbara Streisand, Mariah Carey and Michael Jackson, Brody wasn’t going to get a free pass to pop stardom. “My stepdad used to yell at me all the time, ‘What are you doing; get a job.’”

Of course, while it’s not music, Brody certainly has found himself quite the gig on MTV’s The Hills, which has just been renewed for a fourth season. And while he really wanted to share some spoilers with OK!, his better sense got to him and he opted to stay quiet about tonight’s season finale. And as for LC’s much-hyped "life-changing decision" that is the rumored highlight of tonight’s show? Brody claims ignorance, saying, “I didn’t even know about that!”

So is Brody not a part of this change or is this sly boy playing coy? Watch tonight on MTV to find out.
