Victoria (Ashley Williams)
"It was actually a really interesting speed to play in Season 1 to show Ted, essentially, kind of flirt with cheating on Victoria. It was so interesting because we didn’'t want to make people not like our romantic lead, and yet he was completely head over heels for Robin. … There was something so fun in the writing about playing with that dangerous theme of, 'What would you do if the girl of your dreams calls you at 2 in the morning when you’'re in a long-distance relationship with somebody who you haven't been dating that long?' … Every now and again in the writers' room, someone will bring up the idea like, 'Do you think Victoria weighs 700 pounds now?' She’s just in Germany eating cupcakes all the time."

Victoria and Ted meet again at the Architect's Ball in Season 7, and Ted offers to help her do dishes after catering the event. Victoria reveals that she's engaged and tells Ted that the reason his previous relationships have failed is because he's still too close to Robin. They meet again a few months later when Victoria is running away from her own wedding. They set out to be together only to learn that her groom Klaus has also decided that he isn't ready to marry her. She and Ted date for a while (in Season 8) and Victoria reveals she wants their relationship to get more serious, so she asks Ted to stop being friends with Robin. He refuses, and they break up for good.
