Jon Hamm Strikes Out on 1990s Dating Show

He can have his pick of ladies these days, but back in 1996 Jon Hamm wasn’t quite so adept at picking up women.

The “Mad Men” hunk tried his luck on “The Big Date,” but ended up losing out to a fellow contender named Mark.

Host Mark L. Wahlberg (not that Mark Wahlberg) asked, “You’re on a first date. Mary’s the girl. You want to really impress her. How do you make her feel special?”

And Jon replied, “Well, start out with some fabulous food, some fabulous conversation, and end it with a fabulous foot massage for an evening of total fabulosity.”

Thank God Don Draper is smoother than that!
