Jewish day school student takes model to prom

What’s a nice, non-famous Jewish boy like Jake Davidson doing with a very famous model/actress like Kate Upton? Nothing, apparently.

Davidson, a senior at a Jewish day school in Bel Air, California, asked Upton to be his prom date back in March, via a YouTube video that went viral—and ultimately landed him on the “Today” show.

At first it seemed like he might have a shot. Upton called in to “Today,” stating she’d love to go but would have to check her calendar. Alas, in the end she was tied up in New York,  shooting “The Other Women,” a comedy also starring Cameron Diaz, Nicki Minaj, and Leslie Mann.

But don’t feel too badly for Davidson. The Milken Community High School Prom was Thursday night, and Davidson was there with a pretty decent runner up: Danish-born Sports Illustrated model Nina Agdal. She reached out to Davidson after she learned of his rejection, his mom told the The San Bernardino Sun.

Sounds like Agdal doesn’t regret her decision. “Had such a great prom night. Thank you jakedavidson23 for being an awesome date!” she tweeted after the dance.

For tips on getting a date with a model, please refer to Davidson’s pretty funny video, in which he deploys awesome lines like, “I’m Jewish, 5’9” on a really good day, and I can’t dance.”
