He might be Don Draper now and have the whole “being handsome” thing totally ironed out, but at one point Jon Hamm was 25 years-old, had a sick nineties haircut, was waiting tables and had one adjective in his vocabulary.

Hamm’s appearance on 90s dating show The Big Date has surfaced, and it’s outstanding viewing. For starters, not only does Jon Hamm get rejected, he gets loses out to a man named “Marc” (yes, with a C) and a guy from whom it seems Mark McGrath based his entire look on.

I’ll bet Mary is kicking herself nowadays, but to be fair he didn’t shake her hand and somehow managed to drop the word “fabulous” four times in ten seconds.

Still, Mary. Come on. Mary pls.
