Just think: That Price Is Right contestant you mock today could be tomorrow’s big Emmy-winning star.
From Jon Hamm to Lady Gaga, these celebs appeared on everything from dating shows to prank series before making it big in Hollywood, proving the road to fame can have some surprising pitstops.
The world has an eagle-eyed Twitter user to thank for unearthing this throwback gem.

In 2005, Haddish appeared on Pimp My Ride to share some history behind her friend’s busted whip. “There was a fine guy across the street and I was like, ‘Dang, look at him!’” she recalled.
The comedian confirmed that she’s still tight with said friend, Rashae, in 2016.
Back when she was still known as Stefani Germanotta, the superstar’s temper was tested on MTV prank show Boiling Points. Gaga was unknowingly tasked with enduring ridiculous waitstaff behavior without losing her cool. Unfortunately for her, she dropped a curse words when the waitress brought her a garbage-covered salad, thus losing out on the $100 prize.
Long before she was singing and dancing through L.A. in La La Land, Emma Stone (then going by Emily) belted her way through the VH1 series In Search of the Partridge Family, which aimed to case a reboot of the 1970s classic. She won the competition (although the show never aired), and 13 years later, she also won an Oscar for her musical chops.
Parrish, who played Mona Vanderwaal on Pretty Little Liars, was 14-years-old when she showed off her impressive pipes on the show Junior Singer. She didn’t make it past the audition, but her luck on reality shows improved: She placed third on Dancing with the Stars in 2014.
Back in 2006, before she stole the show as Brittany S. Pierce on Glee, Heather Morris was a fresh-faced dancer who auditioned for season 2 of So You Think You Can Dance with her best friend. However, just a year later, she was dancing with Beyoncé on her world tour, and landed a role on Glee in 2009.
Sure, it was only a one-episode stint, but Aaron Paul’s 2000 appearance on The Price Is Right earned him the title as quite possibly the most enthusiastic contestant in the show’s history.
Another future TV star who made a big impression with just one appearance? Jon Hamm, …
