WATCH: Jon Hamm Gets Rejected on Dating Show in 1996!

Oh, how times have changed! These days, Jon Hamm is seen as a sex symbol, mostly stemming from his role as Don Draper on Mad Men. Back in 1996, though, the actor had trouble just getting a date!

A new video clip has surfaced of the now 43-year-old participating on a dating show when he was 25. Listed as a “waiter” and “aspiring actor,” Jon competed against two other men to land a date with a woman named Shonia.

In the end, the AMC star didn’t end up getting picked for the date, but he’s probably not feeling too bitter about it these days. In fact, just a year later, Jon got together with Jennifer Westfeldt, and they’ve been dating ever since.
