One of the most watched TV shows of all times, the characters from “Friends” seem to have a piece of everyone in them. And now that all 10 seasons are available to stream on Netflix, a whole new generation of “Friends” fans is being born. But for those of you that didn't catch Friends the first time around (1994 - 2004) and dont have Netflix, here’s a quick recap of the main characters:
Rachel Green flees her wedding day and seeks out childhood friend Monica Geller, a New York City chef. They become roommates, and Rachel joins Monica's social circle of single people in their mid-20s: struggling actor Joey Tribbiani, business professional Chandler Bing, masseuse and musician Phoebe Buffay, and newly divorced paleontologist Ross Geller, Monica's older brother. To support herself, Rachel becomes a waitress at Central Perk, a Manhattan coffeehouse where the group often hangs out; when not there, the six are usually at Monica and Rachel's nearby West Village apartment, or at Joey and Chandler's, across the hall.
Ever wondered which of the six friends you most resemble? There are countless online quizzes that will tell you whether you are a crazy Phoebe or an intelligent Ross, an obsessive Monica or a socially awkward Chandler, a spoilt Rachel or a womanising Joey. Click here to see one of my favourites.
Take our quiz and find out what your personal hygiene choices say about which Friends character you have most in common with. Are you as lackadaisical as Joey - who thinks nothing of eating pizza off the floor - or an obsessive compulsive cleaner like Monica, who’ll clean other people’s homes if given half the chance?
