We're all familiar with Ugly Naked Guy from Friends. The naked neighbour across the way from the girl's apartment. While we got a glimpse of his physique we never got to see his face. Interestingly, he was mentioned a good bit in the show but we only ever got to see him twice.
Ugly Naked Guy
It's the day every Friends fan has been waiting for. No, not the day it's announced that there's going to be a Friends movie. This is way more important — we finally know who Ugly Naked Guy is! You remember him, right? He's the ugly naked guy who lives opposite Monica's flat. He's the ugly naked guy who Monica and her pals think is dead so they make a long stick to poke at his ugly naked guy body to check he's okay. Turns out he's not dead.
The character, who Phoebe once described as being cute before becoming overweight , was seen on screen on three occasions. Each time, his face was turned away, his identity never revealed even though he shared a very intimate scene with Ross. Finally, after years of keeping his identity secret, the Ugly Naked Guy from across the street has identified himself in public. After reaching out to members of the cast, directors, and casting agents, the writer reached out to Central Casting - the team who cast the extras in Friends - for the second time. One member of the team finally got back to him, saying they found UNG. They wanted everybody to have a guess who I was. At first, I was feeling a little shy because I had about people watching me in the audience besides the crew and everything.
A little more than a year ago, I stumbled into what has since become the single most important investigative quest in my long career as an Internet content creator: finding the Ugly Naked Guy. But the truth is, Ugly Naked Guy actually only appeared on the show twice, and his face was never revealed. His on-screen debut on the show occurred in the Season 3 episode "The One With The Giant Poking Device," when the friends stabbed him with a long pole they had fashioned out of chopsticks, but all that could be seen of Ugly Naked Guy was his protruding belly. And then, he was gone. The show didn't credit the actor who played Ugly Naked Guy in either episode, and the actor or actors never came forward in the almost two decades since the episode. Believe me when I say I know far too well that any and all guesses since then have turned out to be wrong. As a viral content creator, I decided it was my calling to solve this heroically inane mystery.
