25-year-old Jon Hamm appears on dating show

You know Jon Hamm best from his role on the hit AMC television show “Mad Men,” but someone has unearthed much earlier footage of the actor. On Thursday, Lighthearted Entertainment posted a 1996 video of the 25-year-old star on “The Big Date” dating game show to YouTube.

In the clip, a longer haired Hamm attempts to win over a female named Mary who has a foot fetish and wants a “sexy, hot man who’s honest.” The host asks him, “You’re on a first date. Mary’s the girl. You want to really impress her. How do you make her feel special?” Hamm replies, “We’d start off with some fabulous food, a little fabulous conversation, and end it with a fabulous foot massage for an evening of total fabulousity.”

His competitors for her heart include Marc, a flexible stuntman, and Marcus, a guy with “spontaneous vibes” who likes Las Vegas and squeezing his girl “like a little teddy bear.”

At the time, Hamm was not acting but waiting tables, reports the Daily Mail. And, spoiler alert, he doesn’t get picked for the date.
