The supermodel who accompanied Jake Davidson to his prom may not have been Kate Upton, but the Los Angeles high school senior didn’t seem to mind one bit.
Davidson, who was turned down by Upton after his YouTube “prom-posal” went viral, managed to land a first-class backup date when Nina Agdal, the model Sports Illustrated named Rookie of the Year, agreed to attend his prom with him.
If their Instagram pictures and tweets are any indication, the 21-year-old Danish model and Davidson had a smashing time together Thursday night at the prom.
Agdal wore a floor-length green halter gown with her hair swept into a pony tail, while Davidson looked dapper in a tuxedo, as they posed together for photographs outside of his home.
Davidson had asked Upton to be his date in a March 16 video that went viral, garnering more than 2.5 million views. In the clip, Davidson is seen lounging on a reclining patio chair, lathering up before a shave, practicing push-ups and shampooing in the shower.
“You’re on the cover of Sports Illustrated. I read Sports Illustrated. … Kate, great moments are born from great opportunity. And that’s what you have here today. A chance to make a nice guy’s senior year the best ever,” he says in the video.
The high school senior’s plea, showing no small amount of chutzpah when he coyly asked if he could call Upton Katie, made it to the 20-year-old cover model, who soon tweeted back to Davidson.
“You can call me Katie if you want! How could I turn down that video! I’ll check my schedule (wink),” she wrote.
Alas, when Upton finally did check her schedule, the “maybe” turned into a definitive “no,” but after Thursday night’s prom, it’s safe to say Davidson still had the best night ever.
“Had such a great prom night. Thank you jakedavidson23 for being an awesome date! ” Agdal tweeted when the night was over.
“You are the best! thanks so much for everything,” Davidson replied, but the supermodel had the final word.
“You are! ” she tweeted. “Thank you babe.”
