A Los Angeles teenager who was turned down by one of the world’s hottest models after his YouTube “prom-posal” went viral, has managed to land a first-class backup date when the model that  Sports Illustrated named Rookie of the Year agreed to attend his prom with him.

Jake Davidson’s March 16 video in which he asks white-hot model Kate Upton to attend his prom with him, reached more than 2.5 million viewers.  In the clip, Davidson  is seen lounging on a reclining patio chair, lathering up before a shave, practicing  pushups 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.”

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.” The news even made it into a segment on “Inside Edition.”

Although Davidson didn’t get his dream date, his  prom night won’t be a total loss. He’ll be bringing Danish model Nina Agdal — the  Rookie of the Year  from this year’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

“Inside Edition” went dress shopping with the beauty, who even has her own sexy Carl’s Junior ad, just like Upton.

Tonight Davidson and his date will be turning heads — which is certainly much better than going stag.
