John Dye, a Pensacola, FL native and University of West Florida psychology student, is the dashing young man starring with country music star Taylor Swift in her most recent video, "Love Story."

"It’s been an amazing experience," Dye explained. "It’s really kind of unbelievable when I think about it."

Dye won the spot in Swift’s video when he won over MTV’s TRL crew last June, and was voted Taylor Swift’s numero uno fan. Dye says he was older than most of the fans present at TRL that day.
