One of the best parts about Gilmore Girls is rooting for which boyfriend you think that Rory should ultimately end up with: Dean, Jess or Logan. So, what are the actors who played the iconic BFs doing now? You might be surprised!

Keep reading to see what the Gilmore Girls boyfriends are up to now.

ICYMI, Gilmore Girls followed the tight-knit relationship between mother Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and daughter Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel), in an adorably cozy town named Stars Hallow. The show ran for 7 seasons from the years 2000 to 2007.

One of the first love interests for Rory was her high school sweetheart, Dean Forester, played by Jared Padalecki. The two were on-and-off for the first few seasons, until she meets the town’s “bad boy,” Jess Mariano (played by Milo Ventimiglia), whom she ultimately *spoiler* splits with before enrolling into Yale. There, she meets the third boyfriend of Gilmore Girls: Logan Huntzberger, played by Matt Czuchry.

The show ultimately ends with Rory going her own way after graduating from Yale, ending her relationship with Logan. However, fans had hopes that one of the three boyfriends would be endgame during the Gilmore Girls revival mini-series which was released on Netflix in 2016.

As Jess was an absolute fan-favorite, many Gilmore Girls fans expected that Rory and Jess would find each other again. Unfortunately, when the mini-series aired, those fans (us included!) were left disappointed.

“I think things are complicated when you’re young,” Milo, who played Jess, said of the teen characters on the “I’m All In” podcast in March 2021. “I think you’re going through a developmental change. You are seeing things in the world that you’ve never seen before. You’re experiencing things from the heart, from the gut, from the head, that you’re experiencing for the first time. So I think Jess and Rory, I think they were what they needed from the moment, from each other and at the same time, it didn’t work out. They went in different directions. And that’s OK too. That’s kind of great.”
