Milo Ventimiglia On Dating, 'Gilmore Girls' And Why He Isn't Team Jess


"Gilmore Girls" went off the air in 2007, but to this day, the fans of the show are still obsessed.

No one knows that better than Milo Ventimiglia, aka Jess Mariano, whom I recently sat down with to discuss the new show he's producing and starring in, "Relationship Status," dating in the digital age and, of course, "Gilmore Girls."

Maybe it's because I watched "Gilmore Girls" every single day my senior year of high school, or maybe it's because he's a genuinely nice guy, but Milo's warm, welcoming presence immediately put me at ease.

We began our talk about "Relationship Status," a show Milo calls "relatable, humorous, heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time." Following the lives of 20 and 30-somethings in Los Angeles and New York, this new scripted series (which can be watched on the go90 app) focuses on relationships in the era of Instagram, Twitter and Tinder.

He told Elite Daily,

But, unfortunately for those of us whose lives include a whole lot of swiping, we're probably not going to find Milo himself on Tinder.

He continued,

Simply put, Milo prefers an old school approach to dating and tries to be "a little more analog in [his] personal life."

And speaking of old school, we had to talk about a certain guy named Jess.

Milo speaks of his "Gilmore Girls" character in a tender, big brother-ish way, saying,

But would Jess and Milo have gotten along in real life?

Milo, laughing, said,

Rest assured, Milo is just as excited for the "Gilmore Girls" revival as we are. He said,

He continued,

And as for what to expect from the revival, which comes out on Netflix later this year, Milo didn't want to reveal too much. He did, however, tell us,

I couldn't leave Milo without asking him the most burning question: Team Dean, Team Logan or Team Jess?

He told Elite Daily,

As for how he plans to watch the "Gilmore Girls" revival, Milo said,

You can watch "Relationship Status" exclusively on the go90 app starting Friday, April 29.
