The California high school senior who invited Kate Upton to prom via YouTube may not be getting his first choice, but he'll be pinning a corsage on an equally gorgeous Sports Illustrated model as his date. Jake Davidson, a 17-year-old from Los Angeles, will apparently be taking Danish-born Nina Agdal to his May 23 dance, following his very public proposal — and quiet rejection — to Upton in March. In an upcoming episode of Inside Edition, the teenager tries on tuxedos in a bid to look his best, while his five-foot-nine-inch guest, four years his senior, slips into an array of school-appropriate gowns — a far cry from her usual bikini-clad look. Jake revealed to the JewishJournal.com that 20-year-old supermodel Upton had politely declined his prom proposal due to a conflict in her schedule.  "While I would have loved for Kate to come to my prom, I understand she is a very busy and in demand professional and I am so grateful for Kate responding at all," he explained in an email.  However, Agdal, 21, who has modeled for Victoria's Secret, Billabong and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, stepped in to save the lovelorn student. It is unclear whether Jake actually asked the model, or if Inside Edition contacted her on his behalf, for the purpose of a television segment. Either way, he wins. The  nearly two-minute YouTube video Davidson put together with a friend this spring has gotten almost 3 million hits since being posted on March 23. In it, Davidson lays it all on the line by saying, "You are the yin to my yang. I'm Jewish, five-foot-nine on a good day and I can't dance. At all." The ambitious teen got himself an appearance on the "Today" show and the impressed Upton personally called to let him know she was booked on May 23. That's when Agdal came to the rescue. Just in case any of Davidson's fellow classmates miss his once-in-a-lifetime prom date with an SI swimsuit model, he and Agdal will appear in an episode of Inside Edition the next night to relive the night.
