The chemistry between Ross (Schwimmer) and Rachel (Aniston) was remarkable right from the beginning.

Korean boy band BTS appeared on video, and shared their story of how they actually learned English by watching the show. England football star David Beckham, during the special episode, said that he relates the most to Monica, because he is also a clean freak. Activist Malala Yousafzai narrated that one of her favorite characters was Joey, as his scenes always made her laugh.
We also saw an amazing fashion show, where a few celebrities wore costumes from the show. Justin Bieber modeled Spudnik, Ross's punny potato costume. Model Cara Delevingne wore two separate outfits - Rachel's wedding dress with a cheeky twist, as well as the super famous Holiday Armadillo. Cindy Crawford graciously slipped into the leather pants worn by Ross in one of the episodes.
