Kate Upton Won’t be Attending Jewish Day School Prom

The supermodel ultimately turns down 17-year-old’s invite

Wow. Talk about a bummer.

It’s not every day that a blonde, gorgeous, five foot, ten inch Supermodel agrees to go to a prom with a 5 foot, nine inch, Jewish day school student who admits to not even being able to dance..

But, back in March, after Supermodel Kate Upton tentatively agreed to accompany 17-year-old, Jake Davidson to his prom, his dreams were dashed recently when he got word that he would have to find other eye-candy at the big event as Kate, probably because of her busy life as a Supermodel, would not be able to accompany the Los Angeles student, after all.

Talk about a letdown!

Davidson, (presumably while holding back tears) delivered the bad news to the Los Angeles Jewish Journal this week.

“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 wrote in an email to the Journal.

Davidson first got the attention of the Sports Illustrated knockout by bravely put himself out there by putting together a video asking Upton to his senior prom. He playfully courted her by proving that he was old enough to shave, hygienic enough to shower, strong enough to do push-ups, and compassionate enough to feature his younger brother and adorable puppy.

“I’m Jewish, five-foot-nine on a very good day, and I can’t dance, at all. You’re Christian, five-foot-ten, and that Cat Daddy video, should have won an Oscar for best short film,” Davidson says in the video invite.

The video titled “Kate Upton, Will You Go To Prom With Me?” accumulated over 1.1 million views in less than a week… but it turns out Davidson’s biggest fan is Upton herself.

Upton responded to Davidson initially via Twitter, posting “you can call me Katie if you want! How could I turn down that video! I’ll check my schedule;)”.

Afterwards, she surprised him with a phone call while he was being interview on ‘Today’ when she told him: "It's the cutest video I've ever seen. So creative. I loved it."

Perhaps Davidson needs to give Israeli Supermodel Bar Refaeli a call and see what she’s doing on Prom night!
