A Pennsylvania high school student, suspended last week for asking Miss America to his prom, has shrugged off offers from a reality TV star, Las Vegas prostitutes and scores of young women on social media, and says he will go to the dance alone.
"I'm still dateless," Central York High School senior Patrick Farves, 18, said on Thursday. "I think I'd feel more comfortable, and have more fun, if I went alone."
Last week, Farves asked 2014 Miss America Nina Davuluri, who was appearing at an assembly at his high school, to be his prom date. He asked even though a school official who had heard rumors of his plans pulled him aside minutes before the assembly and warned not to do it.
"By that time, my mind was already set," Farves said last week. "I was already in the zone."
Reality television star Khloe Kardashian said on a late-night talk show that she would go to the prom with him, but Farves also said he presumed her offer was a joke.
While he will go to his school's prom alone, he said, he has accepted an invitation from a girl who works with him at the local Taco Bell to attend her prom at nearby West York High School.
