Believe it or not, actor Jon Hamm was not always a hit with the ladies.
Back in 1996, the "Mad Men" star was a 25-year-old contestant on the show, “The Big Date,” an appearance now going viral on YouTube. The floppy-haired waiter competed with two other men to win the affections of a female suitor named Mary.
Spoiler alert: He didn't get picked.
How could that be? It probably had something to do with the cringe-worthy answer he provided when asked how he would make Mary feel special on their first date.
“Well, start off with some fabulous food, a little fabulous conversation, with a fabulous foot massage for an evening of total fabulosity," he said.
