Nina Agdal Steps In As Prom Date After Kate Upton Bailed

I don't think I will ever forgive Kate Upton for bailing as the prom date of Jake Davidson. It is not that she had to go to the prom with him, because obviously she didn't. The thing is she used the publicity surrounding his invitation for her own uses and totally exploited the situation for herself. That was the not cool part. Luckily for Jake, there was another Sports Illustrated model who was happy to step in. Nina Agdal went to prom with Jake and they looked good together.

Why do you think any of these celebs go on these prom dates if not for PR? So Jake asked Upton to the prom and got shot down. Think he doesn't want publicity from his date? And it's not like he has a right to go out with anyone he asks just because she's famous.

I think Nina is A. Much better looking B. much more down to earth and C. Should have gotten the cover more so than Kate. This girl is a real model and Kate Upton is a sex symbol. Big difference.

I'm tired of people doing this and going through the press.

Good for him, although I don't think that publicly inviting a famous person to any personal event is a cool thing to do - you're putting them in an uncomfortable position.

He looks like a nice kid, she could have sent a bouquet or something, a nice card. I can't hate on her for not going. Could be a security situation too. Plus who wants to go to a high schoolers Prom as a date when you're an adult? (not talking to the Count here.

Bottom line is: If Kate didn't want to go with him, she didn't have to use it as a publicity tool. Many kudos to Nina for showing such class.

I'm going to "blackmail" very publicly (youtube, whatever) all the hot models I can as this guy did to make them come with me if they don't want they will look selfish and people will think that all the media I called was their idea.
If it turns out that the model is a serial banger, I will bonk her, if she isn't, I will be the most famous guy in town.

It's a win-win for me and a no-win for her (unless they get banged by me, obvioulsy).

If "Jake" was stupid enough to think she'd go with him, he deserves to be exploited. I just hope he gets sterilized before he manages to reproduce.

I don't get how Kate used it as publicity. This kid made a video asking her out, it went viral. He gets on the Today show and they tried to force her to commit to going with him and she was smart to give him a maybe ( you could tell she didn't want to go but felt obligated to say maybe). She politely declined later.

Sorry but you can't force somene to go out with you. What he did was nothing short of blackmail. Any celebrity that says no ends up looking bad.

I'm not getting why Kate Upton is the bad person for not going. It's her life, she gets to decide how she lives it. So any celeb that turns down a horny desperate kid who makes a video on YouTube begging an actress/model to go to their prom is an asshole?

I'm pretty sure she isn't hard up for publicity nowadays. Get a grip.

Didn't Kate talk to him on the phone? Why is she the bad guy? She didn't even have to do that.

Anyone else recall about 15 years ago or so there was a kid on Howard Stern who had asked a porn star to go to his prom?
The parents were absolutely thrilled she had agreed to go with the kid. I think they lived on Staten Island. I was a bit surprised the school agreed to it because of her age and occupation.

I'm getting sick of this, it's like a jumbotron marriage proposal. Next.

The correct response is a restraining order, not acceptance of a youtube invitation.

I'd rather have Nina for anything but an eating contest.

Supercilious Seed said...

I think the big issue is that she made a big show of agreeing to go the prom with him (getting her alot of positivepublicity) but shortly before the prom, she bailed on him because she was "busy"

Gabby said...

Good for her!

Nina is so gorgeous! How sweet of her. That guy must have had a heart attack.
