Kate Upton turned down the offer by Sherman Oaks teen Jake Davidson , but the student got a pretty nice consolation prize: Danish supermodel Nina Agdal agreed to attend the dance with him Thursday night.

Agdal was titled the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition’s 2012 Rookie of the Year, and might be even better known as the tanned, bikini-clad girl on the beach in Carl’s Jr. ads, reminds The San Bernardo Sun.

The teen, who is a student of Milken Community High School in Bel-Air, had earlier uploaded a video on YouTube asking the famous model , Kate Upton, to accompany him to his prom that has now tallied 2.6 million views. Upton was charmed by the proposal and thought about it, but later refused, explaining that she had too heavy schedule.

His mother, Cheryl Davidson, said Agdal got in touch with her son after he was turned down.

“Jake was waiting to hear from Kate and when Nina heard about it, she said ‘If Kate can’t go, I’d like to go’ because she never got to go to her prom,” she said, as she followed behind her son’s limo to a pre-prom event.

Agdal was seen wearing a softly draped halter-top gown in moss green to the prom, held at the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica, while Davidson chose a smoky gray, single-breasted tuxedo with black bow tie.

“This prom has been incredible,” he said in an interview at the event. “Nina Agdal is like so down to earth. Really cool, really nice. It was a great day. I really enjoyed it.”

The prom he longed to was great because of weeks of media interviews and behind-the-scenes negotiations that started with a less than two-minute video shot by his friend and aspiring filmmaker Talia Myers.

Myers was also among those who came to the prom Thursday to shoot footage of the couple’s night together.

However, the couple and friends left the party after less than a half of an hour, explaining that they were concerned that media attention was distracting to other students at the prom.

The Upton video, posted two months ago, features Davidson reading the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition with Upton on the cover and continues with clips of Davidson shaving, doing push-ups and showering.

“I absolutely loved the video,” Upton said March 20 in a telephone call to “The Today Show,” where Davidson was appearing as a studio guest in Los Angeles. “It was so hilarious and so creative.”

At the time, Upton said she’d try make the prom if her schedule would allow it, but later she apologized for failing to do so.
“Both of these women have been really sweet and adorable about it,” Cheryl Davidson said.

Agdal flew into Los Angeles on Wednesday for the prom and hung out all day Thursday with Davidson getting dolled up for the event, Cheryl Davidson said.

“She’d be a 15 on a scale of 1 to 10,” Jake Davidson told the entertainment show “Inside Edition.” “She’s as pretty, as beautiful as it gets. She’ll be the greatest looking prom date of all time.”

On Thursday night, Agdal tweeted a photo of her and Davidson and the message “Had such a great prom night. Thank you @jakedavidson23 for being an awesome date!”

Davidson followed up with a tweet of his own. “@NinaAgdal you are the best! thanks so much for everything.”
