Carrie Underwood to Guest Star on How I Met Your Mother 2010-01-06 12:30:32

Who Would You Pick For Ted on How I Met Your Mother?

I guess this means that Rachel Bilson is not The One for Ted? People reports that Carrie Underwood has been tapped to guest star on How I Met Your Mother as a perky drug sales rep — and a love interest for Ted. Considering the show's 100th episode — and Bilson's appearance — are around the corner and Underwood hasn't shot her scenes yet, I'm getting discouraged that Bilson could be Ted's future wife.

Whatever the future holds, who could you envision as the future mother of Ted Mosby's kids? Carrie Underwood? Rachel Bilson? Are you holding out for it to possibly be Robin or a character we've already met? And if none of these fit, who would you cast?

To be honest i'll pick Robin no matter how possible is that she's the one but i think that those two Robin and Ted are born to be together :) No joking

I would love for Rachel to be the mom... but not so much Carrie. As for characters who have been on the show.... even though we haven't actually SEEN this character, I still think the slutty pumpkin could return. :) So excited for tonight's episode!!

Of course it's not Robin, that's the only thing I know for sure. Remember Ted's kids reaction when he told them, in the first episode, "and that's how I met your Aunt Robin". They didn't get why Ted was telling them this story. She's not the mom. I really really really don't want the mother to be Rachel Bilson, she looks way way too young and immature for him. That being said, I have a feeling it is going to be her... I'd like to see Alicia Silverstone as the mom... Wasn't she supposed to play Stella? I don't remember what happened there.

I agree that it can't be Robin, since he refers to her as Aunt Robin. The kids must know their mother's first name... Also, I remember him saying that their mother was in the first classroom the first day he taught. When he went to the wrong room, and talked for 30 minutes without realizing he was in the wrong room.

I always thought the "Aunt Robin" was just a way to make us think she couldn't be the mother....a trick to keep the story going on longer:)

Well Rachel's character is a student at Columbia right? so I get how she can be a bit younger, but she definitely looks older than the first year students, so it could work. Plus in real life they're around the same age lol. I've always liked Rachel Bilson, so I don't mind Rachel being the mom, but I can't imagine Carrie as being the mom-perhaps a love interest for Barney? I still hold a torch for Ted and Robin even if they say "Aunt Robin". UGH. I wish we could just know now!

Well, considering Robin has been referred to as "Aunt Robin" from the beginning, we can count her out. I like Victoria, but Bilson's character could be fine, too. Even though her arc precedes that of Carrie Underwood's, she could come back later in the season and series . . . . They may continue the series and the name after we meet the mother. . . maybe we wont know the mother is the mother until there are "I dos" . . . .

I totally thought it was Robin for the longest time! Now I'm not sure.

I think Rachel looks far younger than Ted.

i wouldn't really mind if it was Rachel, but if it was someone we've seen on the show already, then definitely Victoria

In a perfect world it would be Victoria. There is no way it is Robin. They say that in the first episode. She is Aunt Robin. I don't think Rachel Bilson is the right fit or carrie underwood for that matter.

I think it could still be Rachel....I thought for the longest time it was still going to be Robin! Even though they are nearing their 100th episode if the sitcom is still going strong....will they reveal who the mother is? I think it will get to a point where you want to know who the mother is but if the show is called "How I Met Your Mother" and we finally figure that out what do they do? Change the title of the show?

I wouldn't mind seeing Ted with Rachel Bilson, but since I don't know at all what her character's like, it's hard to really say on that one. I always pictured the mother with darker hair, so I hope the mother isn't Carrie Underwood (and I doubt it will be). If it's someone whom we've already met, I'm pulling for Victoria.
