After Kate Upton turned down Jake Davidson’s invitation to his high school prom, his consolation prize was nothing short of a miracle.

Danish supermodel Nina Agdal took Upton’s place, and attended the dance with him in Sherman Oaks, Calif. on Thursday, San Bernadino’s The Sun newspaper reports.

Davidson said that Agdal, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition’s 2012 rookie of the year, was “[s]o down to earth. Really cool. Really nice.”

He produced a YouTube video earlier this year inviting Upton to his prom, but her schedule would not allow it. The video of him shaving and doing pushups in order to impress her went viral, ultimately generating over 2.6 million views. He didn’t end up with Upton on his arm, but he did show up at the prom with a supermodel — most famous for her sexy Carl’s Jr. commercial — as his date.

Davidson told “Inside Edition” that Adgal is “as beautiful as it gets,” and Agdal tweeted a photo of the couple together with the message, “Had such a great prom night. Thank you @jakedavidson23 for being an awesome date!”
