Friends fans, rejoice! The puzzle has finally been solved!

For those of you who don’t know, “Ugly Naked Guy” was a character on the hit TV show who Monica, Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Joey and Chandler referenced many times.

While he only appeared twice on the show and his face was never shown, the actor who played him wasn’t given a credit in either episode. So for 12 long years, we’ve had no idea who he was!

However, Tuesday came, and with it marked the end of the mystery that has plagued Friends fans since the finale. HuffPost Entertainment revealed that the iconic character was in fact played by actor, Jon Haugen.

Mystery solved! Twelve years after the Friends series finale, it was finally revealed that Jon Haugen (pictured) had played iconic character Ugly Naked Guy
A case for the FBI!
Yep, an intrepid journo embarked on a year-long crusade to track down the star.
When he finally reached Jon on the phone, the actor confessed: “There’s only one Ugly Naked Guy, man, and that was me,” explaining that he was just “keeping it mellow because Warner Brothers was keeping it mellow.”

Looking back on his brief stint on the show, Jon called it “the best time in my life.”

“I’ve been on a lot of TV sitcoms and Friends was my favourite. Everybody was fantastic. They treated me like I was family.”


Jon appeared alongside Ross, hilariously stripping down in an attempt to secure a swanky apartment.

Well, that’s that then. Case closed!
