Paolo was a memorable ”Friends” ex

DATED Rachel

SEASONS 1 and 2

DATING TYPE The Italian Stallion

THE LOVE STORY Rachel and Phoebe return Paolo’s lost cat to him and are wowed by his, um, Italian accent. Rachel and Paolo’s hot and heavy relationship makes Ross livid, and his hatred turns out to be justified: Right before taking Rachel on a romantic weekend getaway, Paolo hits on Phoebe — which is grounds for immediate termination.

FUN FACT He played a mechanic in 2000’s ”Gone in Sixty Seconds.”

POST-”FRIENDS” ”Alias” fans might remember him as Logan Gerace.
