Grey's Anatomy, Ellen Pompeo


It's happening. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) is going on a date. And it's not just any date, it's a blind date with a very famous face. Josh Radnor, yep Ted Mosby from How I Met Your Mother, is the latest familiar star to join the world of Grey's Anatomy—and the latest star to romance the leading lady.

Radnor will appear as a suitor Meredith goes on a blind date with. No word on whether he'll stick around more than the Thursday, Oct. 11 episode, but Pompeo has previously said it was time for her character to get back into the dating saddle since the death of her husband, Derek (Patrick Dempsey).

"Meredith is gonna date, date, date, date, date, just like my friends who are ready to jump back into the dating world do," Pompeo told EW. "What does dating look like today? I think we're almost phasing out the dating apps now. I'm hearing like people are not liking the dating apps anymore. I don't know, I'm just really happy I'm not single in real life. I try to listen to everybody's stories, all my friends and even people that I don't like that much, so we can tell a story that resonates true with people who have been through something like this."

Before she begins to "date, date, date, date, date," let's take a look at Meredith Grey's love interests over the 15 seasons.
