Back when Jessie lived in Fort Hood, Ted was the only guy she ever dumped instead of the other way around in high school. Jessie describe Ted as "A heavy, hairy in the wrong places, slightly smelly toll booth attendant at our local bridge" in which that is the description of a troll. However, it turns out that since Jessie dumped him, he lost a lot of weight, shaved his body hair and even removed the hump on his back and became a male model.
