Team Dean, Team Jess or Team Logan? This is perhaps the most debated Gilmore Girls question to date since the season 7 finale in May 2007 — and members of the cast are weighing in!
Ahead of the original CW series making its return to television in the upcoming Netflix revival, members of the dramedy romance are revealing which of Rory Gilmore’s (Alexis Bledel) boyfriends they think is best suited for her.
“All three. I loved them,” Liz Torres (Miss Patty) tells cameras for the game of “Whose Team Are You On?”
“Dean,” Stars Hollow mechanic Rose Abdoo (Gypsy) says without skipping a beat in the Twitter video, and adds of her reasoning, “The best car. He had the best car. Most reliable. Took care of it the best.”
But when it comes to Jared Padalecki (Dean), he votes for Jess, a shocking choice since the two characters saw anything but eye-to-eye on the show. “I can’t be Team Dean because I am Dean,” Padalecki says. “I’d have to go Team Jess. Kinda the cool bad boy, sultry, reading books.”
As for her second boyfriend, Milo Ventimiglia (Jess) says of his character, “For all the s— that Jess and Rory and just Jess went through in his own existence, I think he turned out to be a good guy. So I think that’s why everybody roots for Jess.”

Lastly, Matt Czuchry, who played Rory’s Yale beau Logan, remains neutral. “Each of those boyfriends came along at just the right time for her to bring something out that she needed to experience in her life at the right time,” Czuchry says. “So, each boyfriend was the right one at the right time. That’s kinda the way I’ve always thought about it.”
