Friends: Rachel’s 13 Love Interests Ranked From Worst To Best
Friends goes down in history as one of the most successful and popular sitcoms on television. It’s mostly due to the fact that the characters on the show were so amazing. The series enjoyed a long 10-season run and throughout it’s time on air we got to see many relationships with each character come and go, especially when it came to Jennifer Aniston’s character, Rachel Green. It was clear from the first episode of season one that she was meant to end up with Ross, but of course, for the sake of making things interesting, she had to kiss a few frogs along the way. Here’s a definitive ranking of Rachel’s 13 most popular love interests from worst to best!
13. Barry Farber
It wasn’t hard to put Barry Farber in last place considering how badly he treated Rachel. He’s the orthodontist Rachel was supposed to marry in the first episode of the series until she left him at the alter when she realized she was marrying him for all the wrong reasons. When she shows up at his office to apologize about it, he makes her feel extremely guilty. The two briefly reconcile until Rachel realizes that Barry has been sleeping with one of her bridesmaids for months! He obviously didn’t take their break up as hard as he made it seem. He then cheated on Mindy with Rachel post wedding. Eventually Barry gets married to Mindy and when Rachel acts as a bridesmaid at their wedding he continues to treat her badly by roasting her every chance he gets!
12. Chip Matthews
We don’t actually get to see much of Chip, but we know he was her boyfriend in high school. From what viewers learn about Chip, we’re pretty sure he wasn’t exactly a great guy. In a flashback episode, we see Rachel upset at one of the Geller’s family thanksgivings because Chip broke up with her for Nancy Branson because he “heard she was a slut.” He nearly ditched her on prom night, but showed up at the last minute. However, on prom night he ditches her so he can go hook up with a girl named Amy Welsh. We get to meet him as an adult and find out he’s one of those guys who “peaked in high school.” He still works the same part-time job he did in senior year and lives with his parents.
