Update: Teen Asks Miss America Nina Davuluri to His Senior Prom
When you’re Miss America, you have to realize the effect you have on the average man. That’s probably why Nina Davuluri is working so hard to get Patrick Farves reinstated after his promposal went wrong.
In case you missed it, the 18-year-old asked Davuluri to be his date for his senior prom during an assembly at Central York High School in Pennsylvania.
School officials had advised him against it, but he did it anyway.
Unfortunately, Nina had to turn down the gracious invitation because her travel schedule won’t allow it.
Davuluri addressed the controversy on the official Miss America Facebook page:
I was flattered by the gesture although I am unfortunately unable to attend due to my travel schedule. I later learned of the disciplinary action taken and reached out to the school in hopes that they will reconsider their decision.”
School officials responded by giving Farves a three-day suspension. Even though Miss America asked officials to rethink their punishment via post on the Miss America Organization’s Facebook page, he was still out of school yesterday, which gave him time to appear on the “Today” show. He said that his stunt wasn’t an audition for Stephen Colbert’s job on Comedy Central.
You can watch his appearance on "The Today Show" here.
Farves, who received a three-day in-school suspension, is now dateless.
So, what’s his plan B?
“I actually don’t have one,” Farves said. “I don’t know if I want to ask someone or if with all the attention if a girl will ask me.”
This seems to be a trend, where teens ask their celebrity crushes to prom.
So Monday, I asked my Facebook followers and my listeners what celebrity, back in your prom days, would you have liked to ask to prom?
The answers ranged from Jonathon Taylor Thomas, to members of Duran Duran, Jon Bon Jovi, Hayley Mills, all three Charlie's Angels, Eve Plumb (Jan from "The Brady Bunch"), Ingrid Pitt, to Adrienne Barbeau and Jayne Kennedy.
