Reigning Miss America Nina Davuluri is defending the Pennsylvania teen who recently asked her to his prom, asking school officials not to suspend him for his actions.

Central York High School officials in York, Pa., gave Patrick Farves, 18, a three-day in-school suspension after he was told not to ask Davuluri to prom during an assembly last Thursday, but he did anyway.

Davuluri posted her thoughts on Facebook through the Miss America Organization.


Davuluri said she was “flattered by the gesture” but wouldn’t be able to attend the prom because of her travel schedule.

While the school’s action against Farves sparked outrage and support for the teen on social media, Farves appeared on the “Today” show on Monday, saying he understood why he was disciplined and knew that he would likely get in trouble.

However, Farves also said he’s known for pulling these kinds of stunts.

“This is kind of what I do. I’m kind of known for this stuff, just like, pranks, standing out, jokes with my friends,” he said. “I’m a real goofy and standout character.”

Farves said while the stunt has garnered him international attention, he still doesn’t have a date to the prom — at least as of Monday.

“I’m pretty good at making my own fun,” he told the show, “so I wouldn’t have a problem going alone.”
