When Steve Burns first showed up for his initial audition for Nickelodeon’s children’s show, Blues Clues, the executives at the station didn’t care for him due to his having a pierced ear and long hair.

The creator of Blue’s Clues, Traci Paige Johnson, however, really liked him so asked him to please come back the next day with a shorter haircut and no earring. Furthermore, the preschool age kids who had been shown clips of various hosts had all liked him the best. Steve Burns was by far the clear winner.
