We know it's not Thursday yet, but this throwback is just too good to hold.

Thanks to the wonderful worldwide web, we've come across an old photograph of Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder looking nearly unrecognizable! Rocking a shorter and much darker 'do, a 16-year-old Stassi flashes a big smile for the camera while appearing with her family on season eight of The Amazing Race: Family Edition in 2005.

Yep, Stassi once competed on the reality show with her father, Mark, stepmom, Char, and her younger brother, Hunter, for a chance to win a million bucks (spoiler alert: Stassi and her family didn't end up winning). 

"For the Schroeder's, it's us against the world. It's 'we're right, and I'm sorry, but we think you're wrong," Stassi's stepmom warned in their intro interview.

After The Amazing Race, Stassi also appeared in Oxygen reality series Queen Bees and later finished seventh place, before making her mark in Bravo's reality series highlighting servers at Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant SUR in West Hollywood, Calif.

And, obviously, Stassi looks much different now than her days racing around the globe with her fam-bam. Schroeder is known for her blond locks and killer bod, which she's flaunted time and time again in front of the camera with her also-gorgeous castmates and their annual photo shoots.

Aside from her looks, Stassi became a staple for stirring up trouble and drama on the Bravo series, however she's hoping to turn over a new leaf with her recent return to the show. "So, there's this special appetizer today and it's called my tongue, which I am biting because I am not going to say anything because I'm on this forgiveness kick."

Hey, we didn't say anything about her ditching the sass.

Vanderpump Rules airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
