Recently word got out that all three of Rory Gilmore's boyfriends will be returning for the new season of "Gilmore Girls" that is premiering on Netflix. Since Rory didn't end up with any of them at the end of the show, the question is, who will her love interest be? Obviously, Jess and Rory were the most passionate and in love. He stole her heart from Dean the minute he came into town. If you aren't team #Jess then here are 12 reasons why you should be:

1. Everyone knew they were meant to get together.

The moment Rory and Jess met something clicked. Be honest, we all hopped off team #Dean when team #Jess came in.

2. He wouldn’t give up trying to get her attention.

We all wish we had a Jess in our lives trying to win our hearts. We lived vicariously through Rory when Jess and Dean bid up to $90 on her basket. TBH her basket wasn’t even that good…Now that’s true love.

3. Rory blew off school for him.

The most important thing to Rory was her precious education. But even Chilton and her Mom’s graduation couldn’t stop her from seeing Jess.

4. He is way funnier than Dean or Logan.

We loved watching Jess poke fun at Rory in a way that Dean and Logan just didn’t really have the whit for. Maybe next time, champs.

5. Rory and Jess have more in common than her other boyfriends.

Dean never understood Rory’s intellectual side. And Logan was too much of a snob. Jess was just perfect. If we read Jane Austen, can we get in on this?

6. Rory and Jess’ first kiss made all of our hearts melt.


The moment we’ve all been waiting for! If you didn’t rewind this scene, at least five times when you first saw the show then you are lying.

7. And every kiss after that.

Dean was too tall for Rory, we were all secretly happy when those awkward encounters stop happening. But Jess and Rory heights match up perfectly. Could they be more designed for each other?

8. Rory was the only one who believed in him.

She knew how much smarter Jess was than everyone else. Besides Luke, Rory was the only one who actually believed he could succeed. But ugh…he made such a good bad boy.

9. He turned his life around.


We all knew he would end up doing something with books. He wrote and published his own book! (insert a million “aw’s”) And then came back to give Rory her own copy even if he didn’t write the book for her…but this still proves they should be together.

10. Just look at him.


Swoon.

11. He told Rory when she was being stupid about quitting Yale.

Look back to #5. Jess understood Rory better than anyone. He knew she was making a huge mistake and wasn’t afraid to tell her.

12. Deep down we all still need a rebellion in our lives.


Praying this happens in the new season.
