Paula Abdul Scores A Hottie

Say hello to Dante Spencer, ladies (and those gents so inclined). While he may need to work on the resume a bit (International Male model), I wouldn’t kick him out of my bed.

Spencer is 6’2″, chiseled and at home on the dance floor – no wonder that from the second he met Abdul three months ago, his chances with the American Idol judge looked promising.

“We were salsa dancing in L.A. at a club called Mood on Hollywood Boulevard,” says the 30-year-old model. “I saw her and went right up to her. Before I said one word, she turned around and said, ‘Who are you?’ And it’s been great ever since.”

Spencer, who attended the Sept. 6 British edition of the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London with Abdul, 43, confirms straight up that he and the Abdul are an item.

“It progressed slowly,” he tells PEOPLE in the upcoming issue. “We’ve been dating for a month and a half.”
