Randy Nations is a middle management boss for whom both Hurley and Locke have worked.


Working with Hurley

While managing Mr. Cluck's Chicken Shack, Randy reprimanded Hurley for eating an 8-piece dark meat chicken combo without paying and giving more than two napkins per client. Hurley and Johnny then quit and, later that night, vandalized Randy's property by spelling out "CLUCK YOU" on his lawn with garden gnomes. ("Everybody Hates Hugo")

At an unspecified point in time, Mr. Cluck's closed down, and then was bought and reopened by Hurley, using the money from his lottery winnings. He hired back Randy to work there, but the day before the grand opening, the building was hit by a meteorite and completely destroyed. ("Tricia Tanaka Is Dead")

Working with Locke

Randy taunts Locke at the box company. ("Walkabout")

A short time later, Randy took a job at Hurley's box company in Tustin, California working as Locke's boss. He taunted and belittled Locke, questioning him about Helen and whether he was really a Colonel, and telling him he wouldn't be able to go on a walkabout due to his condition and lack of destiny. ("Walkabout")

After the rescue of the Oceanic Six

Almost two years later, after the Oceanic Six (including his former boss Hurley) returned to the mainland, Randy was now an employee of Circuit House. He can be briefly seen video taping the end of Hurley's car chase with a hand-held video camera, albeit with the lens cap still on. It is unknown if he was aware that the driver of the car was Hurley. ("The Beginning of the End")

Find 815

Sam Thomas received a voicemail from a man named Richard who worked at "Randy's office". It is uncertain if this is the same Randy. Richard and Randy seemed to be financial advisors. Richard's message referenced a box company investment that Randy had suggested, and that it had burned down. An insurance payout had come through for Sam, and they wanted to know what to do with it. (Find 815 clues/January 22)

Sam answered straight back to Randy:


I got your message (sorry for the email - I can't make phone calls out here). That's great news about the box company payout - the money'll come in handy now I'm no longer at Oceanic. Let me know what I should do about the tax situation.


Producers' commentary

  • Randy was given the last name of "Burgess" on the official UK website Lost: The Untold, but the name was canonically confirmed as "Nations" in "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead".
  • His last name is a reference to Lost writing staff member Gregg Nations.
  • Randy appeared once in each of the first four seasons (he did not appear in season five).
