Star magazine spoke with a pal of Steven Duke, an Ivy League math whiz who went on a blind date with Britney Spears hoping to score. Duke hooked up with Spears thanks to a childhood pal of his who happened to be one of Britney’s backup dancers played matchmaker. “Steve’s just a regular guy,” says a pal. “But he’s also exceptional. Brit was impressed that Steve’s a brainiac majoring in economics and is also captain of the baseball team.” The pair went together to Suite 16 in New York, and sipped Midori sours. “Steve was in heaven dancing with this superstar who is the object of many men’s fantasies,” confided a pal. “He told me it was the most surreal half-hour of his life.” At the end of the night, Steve asked Spears for her phone number, and she gave it to him. But when he made the call, he got her voice mail, and after leaving a message, hadn’t heard back from her. He did manage to give Spears a kiss on the cheek before they parted.
