Lance Bass Wins #PuberMe Challenge With Throwback ‘N Sync Photo

Lance's adorkable pic is tearing up our heart.

In response to Stephen Colbert and Nick Kroll’s #PuberMe challenge, lots of celebs posted awkward photos of themselves as teens. But Lance Bass’s throwback ’N SYNC pic might just take the cake for most adorkable.

On The Late Show, Kroll dared Colbert to share a photo of himself during his awkward phase, to help raise relief money for Puerto Rico. Colbert rose to the challenge and was soon joined by a host of other stars, including Bass.

On Sunday, the out star posted a photo on Instagram of himself at 16, alongside his boy-band bandmates. “22 years ago today I met these jackasses. My life would never be the same. Happy #NsyncDay #PuberMe #PuertoRicoRelief.”

The nostalgic photo is timely, since Lance is currently co-hosting MTV’s 90’s House, which puts 12 millennial roommates in a ’90s-inspired house to compete in various throwback-themed challenges.

I believe that true, well-told stories have the power to change the world for good. I also love a good listicle.
