Jake Davidson and model Nina Agdal (Twitter)
While the Los Angeles high school student didn't end up bringing Kate Upton as his date ― although he certainly got her attention with his headline-making YouTube appeal ― he had another certified beauty on his arm for the rite of passage: Upton’s fellow model Nina Agdal.
The big night was Thursday in Santa Monica and it included the requisite prom photo shoot beforehand. Davidson, dressed in a gray tux with a black bow tie, happily posed next to the 21-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model, who wore a sage green halter dress that showed off her back.
"Had such a great prom night," tweeted the Danish beauty, who recently appeared in an ad for Carl's Jr. that ran during the Super Bowl. "Thank you jakedavidson23 for being an awesome date!"

"You are the best!" the 17-year-old replied. "Thanks so much for everything."
Davidson has since shared some of the details from his big night.
"She came over to my house to meet my family and then we headed over to pre-prom, which is where everyone from school takes pictures," he told Sports Illustrated's Swim Daily blog on Friday. "Then we headed to prom for a little bit, the usual schedule, but with a very unique date."
Davidson noted that Agdal "got along very well" with his classmates, describing her as "incredibly friendly." He added, "All of my guy friends loved the choice and certainly approved, and a lot of the girls wanted to get into photos with us as well. I would venture to say that a few heads turned when I walked in with Nina on my arm."
As for whether anyone tried to steal her away from him, he said, "Not at all."
Davidson made national headlines earlier this year when he created a YouTube plea to Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model Kate Upton asking her to be his prom date. The video went viral ― it has over 2.6 million streams ― and one of the people who saw it was Upton, who tweeted Davidson and said she'd attend if she was free. However, her schedule ended up being booked so Agdal happily stepped in.
Not a bad trade-off by any means, which Davidson also acknowledged, noting, "Nina Agdal is the perfect date!"
