The two hit it off in Barbados when Joey sees his then-girlfriend, Charlie Wheeler, kissing Ross — which prompts him to kiss Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), who had already been not-so-secretly crushing on Dr. Drake Ramoray. Fourteen years after the finale, fans of the comedy series are still upset that Joey and Rachel ended up as, well, friends. 

"I say this every time I finish Friends but I’m gonna say it again: RACHEL AND JOEY SHOULD HAVE ENDED UP TOGETHER!!," one pro-Jochel fan tweeted. Another agreed, writing, "Y’all ever watch Friends and get really annoyed with the fact that Joey and Rachel didn’t end up together because same." 

Rachel and Joey aside, even the biggest Friends fans have a hard time keeping track of all of Joey's famous love interests. From Susan Sarandon as Cecilia Monroe to Kristin Davis as librarian Erin, Joey's love life was definitely not DOA. Keep scrolling to see what some of Joey's most memorable love interests look like today!
