It Turns Out, There Was a Time in Jon Hamm's Adult Life When He Completely Lacked Sex Appeal

This is from a dating show, The Big Date from way back when, just made available on YouTube. Hamm is 25, and when he speaks, your body may do a full-body cringe. It’s not the terrible floppy hair, or even the lines he’s delivering (which, God help me, I hope they were scripted). it’s the manner in which he delivers them.

Skip to 3:21. He really is a guy that grew into his sex appeal. I love Jon Hamm, but if this is a performance, he plays an unbelievably good douchebag.

(Sorry Figgy. Stay strong.)

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • LIsten to the Marc Maron "WTF" with Jon Hamm to get a good readout of what his life was like at the time. Sounded like a bad pseudo grunge music video.

  • < Avatar represents my actual facial expression right now, and it will. Not. Go away.

    it was the best of times, it was the worst of was the 90's. man, the clothes, the hair, the airline stewardess neck scarf, it's all just soooooo mid-90's. did anyone else think the 2nd guy was either vanilla ice or mark mcgrath from sugar ray?

  • The way people are getting worked up over this is dumb. That stars also have awkward phases is a fact of life, and a refreshing one at that. The thing that really chaps my ass is that you're holding 90s style against him as if he's responsible for it. Lots of people had that haircut because they wanted to look like Cory's older brother on Boy Meets World. If you saw it back then, you'd probably swoon.

    For shame, people. If a star being human is unattractive to you, you need to give your head a shake.

    How about you all post your old yearbook pictures so I can look down on your style choices with 20 years of hindsight.

  • e jerry powell

    Dustin and his man crushes.

    I must concede, however, that Mr. Rowles could be doing a lot worse with his selections.

  • I actually couldn't watch past a few seconds. It's just too hard.

  • Pretty Hate Machine

    Douchey or not, I choose to focus on the great reward in his trousers hasn't changed. Ol' girl missed her chance.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    but if this is a performance, he plays an unbelievably good douchebag.

    Of course he does. Whatever else Don Draper may be, he's also kind of a prototypical douchebag.

  • Three_nineteen

    And now you understand part of the reason I'm not usually attracted to guys under the age of 35.

  • BWeaves

    That was FABULOUS!

    Take note boys. When an older women tells you to cut your hair and sit up straight and wear a nice suit, THIS IS WHY. Also, look into cufflinks.

  • I. JUST. WHAT. WHA. GAH. *chokes*

    I can't with this. I just..NO. I'm gonna go away now and just...GOD. WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO DO TO ME, ROWLES.


    ............I hate you so much sometimes.

  • Dumily

    Shhhh, shhhh, it's ok. It's ok. I'm going to leave this right here.

  • That's not Jon Hamm! What am I supposed to do with it!

  • Dumily

    It's supposed to restore our faith in the Pajiba Hall of Fame. Hamm might have let us down. But Bell will always be there for us.

  • Eh. Thanks, but she's never really done it for me.

  • Jenn Hamm

    Wow. That was very, very confusing and a bit traumatic. All the hot was gone. All. Of. It.

  • Classic

    I hate Pajiba right now! You ruined Jon Hamm for me. Seriously for the rest of my life I can't unsee this mess!

  • BWeaves

    Actually, all the hot hadn't been invented yet.

  • TacoBellRey

    Why does Jon Hamm have to look like every asshole I went to high school with?

  • RocksEaglesHats

    The center hair part.... it's like I'm watching a vintage Kevin Smith movie.

  • Wednesday

    Is it at all possible, for anyone, ever, to be sexy with a center part? I think it just reduces a person to their prepubescent dorky self.

    And that's why the 70's were an awful, awful time. A decade-long middle school fashion period.

  • Ashley

    i don't think the host has aged at all lol and this was incredibly cringeworthy

  • RocksEaglesHats

    "Why thank you, hello everybody, I'm Mark Wahlberg"


  • emilya

    i did a double take too and then spent the rest of his monologue trying to figure out if he might be related to marky mark. i'm going to guess no.

  • maja

    what is seen, can't be unseen, so i choose to skip it. just like "a serbian movie".

  • Dumily

    Right? Just don't click it guys. If you found a VHS labeled "Grandma and Grandpa's Sex Tape" you wouldn't watch it, would you? I'm sure watching unsexy Jon Hamm would be just as destructive to my lady boner.

  • Al Borland's Beard

    Am I finding this tape in my grandma and grandpa's house?

  • Dumily

    Sorry, everyone. I should have specified. This is your own grandparents' sex tape. Not just the regular geriatric porn we've all been consuming and enjoying for a long while now. Watching old people who aren't related to you bone is still the sexy, beautiful experience it's always been.

  • Al Borland's Beard


  • God Of Bal-Sagoth

    My grandma and grandpa? No.



    Uh, did I just make this weird?

  • maja

    amen! and with the final season just around the corner, it would seriously mess me up. and by me, i too think of my lady boner.

  • Bob Genghis Khan

    All I see is Adrien Brody.

  • NateMan

    All I see is Jared Padalecki. Specifically from his Gilmore Girls days, which my wife is rewatching on DVD for the 12th time.

  • thatsmrsnyder

    Man, f**k Dean.

  • Berry

    I hate Dean so much! Jess is such an insufferable little snot that he makes Dean seem like the good, nice guy in comparison to a lot of people, but taken on his own merit, Dean is a douche. I hate him so much my husband swears I have a "Dean hate face", which apparently is an expression I wear only when he's on screen.

    Dean is the worst!

  • NateMan

    I got very confused, because he's Sam on Supernatural. I forgot his name on GG for a while there.

  • Without reading a thing or clicking the link....this took place at about 1993-94.
