J-14 just got off the phone with The Buried Life's Duncan Penn, who crossed a huge item off the "Buried Life" list -- #59, "Ask Out The Girl Of Your Dreams." But Duncan's dream girl was no ordinary gal -- it was Taylor Swift!

After his pal, TBL's Ben Nemtin, failed to ask out Megan Fox last year, it was Duncan's turn to step up to the plate.
Last year, Duncan met Taylor in one of LAX's airport lounges. He started talking to Taylor's mom. "She happens to be probably the nicest person I've ever met," Duncan tells J-14. After telling Taylor's mom all about The Buried Life project, he then started chatting with Taylor -- but he didn't ask her out.
So Duncan decided to ask Taylor on a date -- at this year's CMT Awards! "We found out that she was performing at the CMTs, and one thing we are pretty good at is getting into award shows uninvited," Duncan admits.
In the episode, which aired last night, Duncan goes up to Taylor on stage, asks her out, hands her a note with his phone number on it, and tells her to reply to him later. Two days later, Taylor said yes! At first, Duncan didn't recognize the number, but he tells J-14 that he is friends with Taylor's BFF Abigail, and she confirmed that it was Taylor's number. "Then I obviously started talking to her more, and I've been talking to her since," Duncan tells us. "We haven't gone out on a date yet, but we hung out after the VMAs with some friends. We're just chatting [right now]. We're both super busy. We're still editing the show, and she's obviously one of the busier people on the planet."
So has Duncan figured out what they'll do on their big date? "I haven't thought about it too much," he admits.
Where do you think The Buried Life's Duncan Penn should take Taylor Swift on their first date?
