Jamie Walden is the latest member of the armed forces to turn to YouTube for a celebrity date to a military ball.
The 20-year-old Louisiana Airman asked Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow to be her date for the event, her first military ball, in Shreveport, La.
Sgt. Scott Moore started the trend in July 2011 after asking actress Mila Kunis to be his date to his ball last year’s in Greenville, N.C. — and she said yes. Since that first video, celebs from Betty White to Justin Timberlake have been asked to the ball. Timberlake accepted, while White respectfully declined due to a scheduling conflict.
No word from the Tebow camp yet, but Walden’s cause is building momentum. The video has more than 430,000 views since it was posted on February 5. Twitter users are also piling on the pressure; Walden even has her own hashtag – #SayYesTim.
