How I Met Your Mother was essentially a long-winded story about how hopeless romantic Ted finally came to marry his wife and mother of his children, hence the show’s title. However, it was a show that became just as synonymous with the playboy exploits of long-time lothario Barney Stinson, allowing for a show that was never short on eye candy and drama.
The show’s female leads, Colbie Smulders and Alyson Hannigan, weren’t exactly bad on the eye either, but not many women in the world could compete with these 10 female A-listers, so we thought it only right to go back in time and remind you of 10 stunning A-listers that once appeared on the show.
1. Heidi Klum- Season 3, Episode 10
You know a show’s doing well when producers manage to convince the most in-demand models to appear on a TV series, but by season 3, HIMYM was already a massive hit, which luckily for Ted and Barney’s characters, meant mingling with the likes of Heidi Klum and her entourage of fellow Victoria Secret’s models, which also included the likes of Adriana Lima and Miranda Kerr.
The episode itself was an unusual one in that it involved Barney doubting his sexual prowess under the sheets after being told ‘His First’ faked it. This leads Barney facing an unusual bout of self-doubt, which just happened to coincide on the same day he had an exclusive backstage pass to the Victoria’s Secret fashion show.
Luckily for Barney, the beautiful blonde bombshell Heidi Klum convinces Barney that his skills flirting with women can return so long as he tracks her down and re-sleeps with her to regain his mojo.
