OK, so you probably know Ryan Seacrest best as the host of American Idol.

Wait, is American Idol still on?!

Or maybe, just maybe, you really only know him from his once a year hosting duties on ABC's New Year's Rockin' Eve.

But did you know that in 1997, Ryan was the host of Click, a children's game show based on the internet?

Fun fact: The game show also included the annoying dial-up sound whenever the contestants went "online."

And of course Ryan, being the fashion peacock that he is, hosted the show dressed like a late '90s boy band cliché.

Oversized polo? Check! Baggy jeans? Check!

Yup, he even rocked some serious frosted tips!

Although I don't even know if those qualify as frosted tips, he looks like he just stuck his hair in a vat of hair bleach.

But there is one thing Ryan still has today that he even had back then.

Awkward interactions with young people!

Here is looking like a frazzled Muppet while trying to be ~cool~ by yelling, "hip-hop!"
